Made It Through the First Night...

Well...I have officially not cried yet today so I think my emotions are getting under check...:) Wes had a good night...His heart rate is down...is blood pressure is stable now...He still has a little fever but it is manageable...His pain is under control with medication and he is basically sleeping all day so far. He got to get off oxygen and is keeping his levels up on his own!! Yay!! His swellling is so bad right now in his face that he doesn't even look like my baby anymore...but i know all that will go away eventually...I can't hold him at this point and they keep him in a car seat all day for his protection.... Thank you to www.karenhalbertphotography.com for the great pics she printed out for me to use bedside...The nurses are LOVING seeing all the cute pics of my boy and our other kids too...

I got brownies for breakfast from one friend and another just dropped in to bring me diet coke and magazines...AND..best of all...my hubby and kiddos are on their way up here for a visit...Can't wait to see them...


*Wes still isnt' holding down bottles..so praying he can stop throwing up soon and start keeping food down!! I'll update more soon...I really have nothing else to do when he sleeps besides play on my lap top!! :) I could start reading a book.....hmmmm...that might require too many brain cells though..too tired to use too many of those!!! :)


More soon..happy Friday to you all, kj

  9. I have been praying for Wes and you. Going through surgery with little ones is always difficult. My adopted son Luke had heart surgery at 3 years old after the doctors discovered a murmur which led to finding a hole in his heart. It was one of the most difficult and emotional times for me. Now at 8 years old we are navigating the world of glaucoma (yes..my boy is losing his eye sight). It is a continuous walk of faith and I strongly believe that God gives us the grace to walk through these difficult times (our God is greater). We are lifting your family up in prayer.

  15. I was so glad to see an update Kristi. My husband and I have been praying for Wes. I am glad he is doing better. And I am glad that you are doing better too.

    I pray he can keep some food down soon. And I hope the swelling starts going down soon too.

    In Christ's Love,
