Owain came home last Wednesday, October 15th. It is amazing that he was only in the hospital for a week and a day after having major bilateral open heart surgery!! He is such a happy guy, you would never know what he went through just 2 weeks ago, he is my hero. We still have to be extra careful when we pick him up & can't pick him up under his arms for another 1 1/2 months, but he loves to sit up on my lap & hang out, like nothing ever happened. Babies are so resilient!
He is finally getting his appetite back & is almost eating as much as he was before surgery. He is also on no pain meds, just a bit of Tylnol when he gets too fussy, which he doesn't do often any more. Mostly he just wants to be attached to me at all times, I swear he is like velcro LOL. I call him my little cling-on.
Pretty much as soon as he came home we all got sick & except for taking care of the kids...a few of whom had to take care of themselves...I have been trying to recover on the couch & pretty much had to tie Milio to the couch so he wouldn't go out & work on the addition.
I have one picture of him in the hospital & one a few days before his surgery. Enjoy!!
We have a follow up appointment at UVA this afternoon, so that is all I have time for now, but I thought you all deserved to hear from me & see some new pictures of my little guy!
Thanks for all your prayers & support! (((big hugs)))
