Yay!

We're on the way to some Christmas festivities but I wanted to do a quick little update.  First if all, thank you so much for all of your prayers for our boy!! Y'all are awesome!

Today went well.  Derrick looked and sounded good and there's NO FLUID!! Yay!! That means he's free of yucky chyle and he can eat and continue I to heal and grow! 

 Speaking of growing....

It was so awesome to clean out the fridge and get rid of these yucky things!



Derrick is up four pounds and 1.25 inches since his post op check up in the middle of October!  What!?  That's HUGE growth for Derrick.  Huge!


His sats were at 92 today.  We haven't been checking them at home at all, so I have no idea where he's been since our last appointment.  92 isn't bad, it's actually very normal for a fenestrated Fontan, but he was at 96-ish the last two times we were there and we were thinking the fenestration may be closed.  We're thinking now maybe not.  That isn't an issue at all, it's very normal, but I have to admit I had an ick feeling after that.  Felt a little let down, which I know is silly.  They couldn't see his fenestrstion on the echo today, but couldn't see it on the discharge echo at the hospital either, probably because of his funky placement in that wild little heart of his.  

Anyway, all went well and we celebrated by letting him spend his doughnut money at Krispy Kreme!   D's friends know how much he loves KK, so thank you Ms Beth and Jack!!  They both sent him doughnut money while he was in the hospital and he loved spending it today!! :). Thanks y'all!!





We also stopped to see Santa but those pics are in the big camera so they'll come eventually.  

Thank y'all SO much for praying for our boy!!!!  

Merry Christmas!! :)
