How do I even begin?

Stellan, precious little one-year-old Stellan who belongs to MckMama, went into surgery today. There was some major scares in there. His heart stopped this morning - we're talking a flat line! His blood pressure was nearly non-existent. His surgeons couldn't get one of his catheters (towards his heart) in through his groin, so they had to "improvise". In fact, during his surgery it was a Hail Mary Pass that ended up working in the end.

Stellan is alive and well! His extra pathway (what causes his SVT - supraventricular tachycardia) has been completely destroyed and his AV node is without a scratch. If his AV node had been destroyed, which was a real possibility, Stellan would have needed a pacemaker for the rest of his life.

But INSTEAD... he's perfect! He's still sick - mostly repercussions of the last 24hours of SVT - so keep him in your prayers. And it's not like this is Bang, The End, All Over for sure - but it is the absolute best possible outcome to today's events!
