Jack has been doing very well. He had a heart cath on Saturday to rule out the very scary coronary artery restriction. He does not have it and if he has there would not have been any surgical options to save him. Heart transplant would have been it. Fortunately we have not been faced with that because after his BT Shunt surgery yesterday his EKGs and echoes look great. We are not completely out of the woods yet because we have to see how he does as they begin weening him off all the tubes and medication.
I cannot explain how exhausted I am because of the stress and worry. Please keep Jack in your prayers. I will try to be better about updating y'all but at the end of the day I am so tired I don't want to even talk about it anymore. I will write more about his birth, heart cath, surgery and recovery. I just need to get him up to the 8th floor first. That means we are closer to coming home.
I have included some pictures of him after surgery. It was not nearly as bad as i thought it would be! He is still so beautiful beyond all the tubes and tape! And yes he does have his hair in a mowhawk. The nurses love and fight over who gets to take care of him. One of our favorite nurses gave him his last surgical bath and fixed his hair. When he came back the OR team must have loved it too because it was re-fixed that way. :)
