We had our appointment with the surgeon today. His name is Dr. Bailey and if anybody remembers "Baby Fae" and the baboon heart transplant in 1984...he's that Dr. Bailey. He was a pioneer in infant heart transplant and also successfully transplanted the first infant-to-infant heart in 1985. Despite the fact that he is world renowned, he has an absolutely fabulous manner. He explained things slowly and in a way that we could understand them and gave us a tremendous amount of confidence.
"Embrace the child and his/her family with honesty, reassurance, and sensitivity toward their physical, emotional and spiritual health." and I have to say that we really felt that. He even held Reagan for a picture and snuggled her a bit :) (who wouldn't right?)
