Words You Love to Hear…

…from your 8-day old baby’s cardiovascular  surgeon:  everything went perfectly.

The doctors were able to do a complete fix of the transposition.  He is in the ICU recovering and so far doing well.  He’s still intubated and covered in a myriad of other tubes and monitor stickers (LG and I tried to count the lines going into him, but lost count), but he’s holding his own.  We’re so grateful to the doctors and most of all the amazing nurses at Children’s.  He’s still considered critical for the next 24 hours or so, but we’re definitely seeing the light at the end of the proverbial tunnel and can’t wait to take our healthy little boy home.

  14. Hi Callie,
    The sunglasses we bought for Charlotte are the “cool shadz” from Coolibar.com. We got her a sun romper and infant swim hat, too, so she’s covered from head to toe… literally.

    How’s your little boy doing? You haven’t updated in a while, but if you’re looking for sunglasses for him, then may I assume he’s doing well?

    I hope everyone in your household is having a healthy and happy summer. Be well!
