CVICU
















He looks great. The adrenaline is wearing off and I am exhausted. Nolan, Mom, and Dad have gone to Katie's house for the evening. Richard and his dad have gone to get Chili's take out, and Richard's mom and I are holding down the recliners in the waiting room where Richard and I will be spending the night. Ethan has two central lines, and atrial line, breathing tube/machine, three arterial pulse oximetry monitors, one veinous pulse oximetry monitor, catheter, tube to suction his tummy to keep off acid, and lots of tape. It looks much worse than it is. We got a surprise when we went to see him. A nurse walked in with a huge stuffed bear and balloons...from Dr. Fidone. Brought tears to realize that everyone is rooting for him...even those that we don't know or realize. I'm putting this day to bed guys...more updates tomorrow...hot doggie we made it through D-day...

Gosh, I am in tears right now. He has made it through his hardest day (and you did, too)! Considering all that his little body has been through, he looks great!

Awe! Those pictures just make me cry. He is a strong little guy. It is so amazing they can do such intricate things on such a little body.
You guys will continue to be in my prayers.
