Samuel's Articles [cached]

When Walters told Steve: "if it was my son, I would seek a donor," the parents knew what their course should be. Walters, along with transplant cardiologist Dr. T.P. Singh and Karen Kaisner, a registered nurse and cardiac transplant coordinator, are supervising Samuel's round-the-clock care.

According to Walters, Samuel is listed as "1A" priority, the most critical classification.
Dr. Henry Walters wasn't talking apples and oranges at a press conference Thursday morning. It was more like walnuts and plums. Walnut, as in the size of Baby Samuel's heart, and plum, as in the size of a new, donated heart. Walters, vice chief of cardiovascular surgery at Children's Hospital of Michigan in Detroit, and Dr. T.P. Singh, transplant cardiologist at the hospital, successfully performed surgery July 7 on the two-month-old Downriver resident, the smallest person to receive a heart transplant in Michigan.
Walters said a transplant heart three times the size of Sammy's would have been acceptable, but the donated heart was close to the infant's own proportions. Steve and Susan spent more than five hours holding their son before surgery, not knowing what the outcome would be. "It could have been the last time, or a beginning of life," Steve said. "We had no way of knowing." The surgery began at about 5 a.m. and ended eight hours later. Walters and Singh said they were waiting for Higgins in the operating room with Sammy's chest cavity open and ready for the new heart, which went in quite quickly.
The name of the donor will not be revealed for sometime, and then only by mutual consent, according to Walters. That is standard policy. Steve said he and his wife are preparing a letter to send to the family of the infant, to express their gratitude. "There really is no way to say 'thank you' enough," he said. "I can't imagine what the other family must have gone through to make such a decision. I am thankful to God I didn't have to make the same decision." After Sammy goes home, he will be required to make weekly visits to the hospital for about six months, then monthly and then semiannually. Sammy is drinking from a bottle filled with vitamins. Susan decided not to breastfeed as she did with her oldest son, Steven, three-and-a-half-years old, because of the energy required of the baby. He has gained weight since birth (when he weighed in at just four pounds, three ounces), and is now up to seven pounds, two ounces. The heart defect contributed to Sammy's low birth weight, Steve said. Steve also expressed his gratitude to the surgical team and the nursing staff. "When the doctors were attaching the arteries, it was like hairs splitting hairs," he said.
