All's Well

We are in the recovery room with a sleeping Calvin. The hole was bigger than anticipated and there were some other tiny holes surrounding. The procedure took longer than usual, but thankfully, we had a doctor who kept trying until he got the device in position. Thanks for your prayers. Keep praying the the device stays put and no clots form. (Both of these things are minor worries now that the procedure is over.) We'll be in the hospital overnight, so now it's time to figure out how to entertain a 3 1/2 year old for 24 hours in the hospital. We're armed with DVD's and some books about space.

Oh, Calvin's first words when he first roused from sleep? "Space Shuttle." His mind doesn't take a break from his obsessions, even on drugs.
