The hospital kept patients for about a week after surgery. Even after a week, Vignesh was still in the PICU. That was when I shed my shyness and ran behind his cardiologist and surgeon asking (pestering) them to shift him back to the room. I was waiting to shower so much love on him that could make up for all the time that he was spending alone in the PICU. I just wanted to take him in my arms and say everything would be fine. So, after 13 days, his cardiologist and surgeon agreed to have him shifted. My husband had to fight with the hospital authorities to get a room allotted on the same day and by around 8.30 pm or so, we were back with him. It was a silent and emotional reunion for the three of us.
