Our little man is doing well after surgery. He tolerated the total repair heart surgery well and is making his way toward recovery. He was on 10 different meds after the surgery, and now is not on any, except for morphine as needed. He has gone through some withdrawal from being off the meds, which is really hard to witness. I just feel so bad that I can't do anything for him.
But, all in all he is doing well. They hope to wean him off the vent soon, but we constantly are dealing with edema and other smaller things that they want to take care of first before taking him off everything. We try not to get our hopes up about anything as we don't want to be disappointed. We are looking forward to holding him again and eventually taking him home. Please continue to keep us in your thoughts and prayers as we continue on this journey towards recovery.
