Another Successful Surgery :)

Owain came out of surgery around noon today,Yippie! He is doing well. He still hasn't woken up yet & is still on a bit of pain killers. We are waiting for his pain meds to wear off and most likely they will be able to take him off the respirator early this evening. He was starting to wake up and wiggle around a little bit, but then they had to give him some more pain meds because he is not quite ready to come off the respirator.

I have been so nervous about this surgery and I am so glad it is over! He still has several months of recovery, but knowing this is behind us is such a relief, I feel like a huge weight has been lifted.

It does look like he is going to be in the hospital for about a week and I am prepared to stay here with him most of that time. He might even be able to move out of the PICU by tomorrow night or Thursday morning. He is in a shared room with two other cardiac babies, so I can't stay in the room with him overnight. We are staying in a hotel tonight, but I hope that he does well enough that he can move out to the Pediatric floor by tomorrow night so I can stay in his room.

I haven't been very hungry the past few days, but I am starving now. I am going to head down to the cafeteria and see if I can find something to eat, I could use a nap too!

Thanks for all of the lovely prayers and support.

If you want to light a candle for a his recovery, his candle page is still here

We are delighted that Owain and all of you are doing fine. You have been in our thoughts all day, we got the message. Sorry we haven't returned it, but our season is harder than we expected. We look forward to talking with you when Leah and I can come up for air.
