The Update I've Been Waiting For...

No, he's not out yet.  We did, however,  just receive an update saying that D is OFF BYPASS, so his little heart beats again!  I've been waiting for that one.  He is still stable and they will be closing his chest soon.  He should be up to the PCICU within an hour.

Thank you all for your support, messages, emails, and prayers.  Keep 'em coming!  They've carried us through and given us something to do while we wait.

  17. GREAT news! It is always a sigh of relief to hear that they are off bypass and their beautiful heart is beating again.

    I bet you can't wait to see his little bed wheeled into his room. I know it is always so hard seeing them right after surgery but it is such a relief.

    Lots of prayers.
