Thank you all for the support! I am very happy to report that Ryker and I are now home and doing well. The condition I was diagnosed with is called SVT (supra ventricular tachycardia) as well as a similar illness called Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome. They are usually very minor problems, but happened to go bad in this instance. I have a cardiac ablation surgery scheduled for next Tuesday that (should) solve the issue permanently, and I should expect to have no problems in the future whatsoever if the surgery goes well.
Being separated from Ryker was very tough, but I was so happy when I finally was able to see him. We are now nursing very well and I was able to keep my milk supply up thanks to a very loving hubby who made numerous videos of Ryker for me as well as wrapping a newborn-sized stuffed bear in his blankets and clothing to keep with me in the ICU. It was a very scary experience that I am more than happy to finally put behind me after the surgery.
