He's out!

Dr. Azakie just came to see us, and he said the surgery went well!

We're still not out of the woods, though. His chest is still open and we'll have to wait a day or two for it to be closed. The next step after that is removal of the breathing tube. He's still in very critical condition.

He's still not up on the floor, but when he is, we'll get to see him.

By the way, neither of us has any cell phone access in the room we're in, so if you're waiting for a phone call from us, we'll try to call you later, but it might be a while.

  13. We emailed a little back when you first found out your baby would have a CHD. I have been following your blog. I am glad to hear he is out of surgery. Dr. Azakie is a wonderful surgeon, he had done all three of Gracie's surgeries. She was in the PCICU for three months after birth and is now about to turn 3 and is doing great! I wish you the best and will keep your family in our prayers. ~Jackie
