Our little man is not even a week old and is having major heart surgery today. He went in right away this morning and will be in surgery until early evening if everything goes well. His heart defect is pretty complicated and considered high risk. We are at a terrific hospital and we have a wonderful surgeon.
This is probably the hardest day of my life! We love our little guy so much and it is so hard to know what he is going through right now, even though he is not going to feel any of it. We also know we have a long road ahead of us, as he we be recovering for a long time in the hospital.
I know a lot of you ladies have been in similar situations and have dealt with many surgeries. This will not be his only surgery as he gets older, but he is so little and fragile right now that it makes the risks even higher. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers today and in the next upcoming weeks as he recovers.
