Waiting and Baby Strides–One Day at a Time

“For I was my father’s son, Tender and only beloved in the sight of my mother.”

King Solomon

Right after John Lee’s surgery the doctors were optimistic that his chest will get closed this weekend. It turns out that the optimism is not realistic. Yesterday the attending doctor told us that realistically, babies will stay open for five to seven days, due to size. This will apply to John Lee. Other factors such as blood in the lungs (due to surgery and possibly the breathing tube) and swelling are also prohibitive to the closing procedure. 

John Lee continues to do well and in on schedule for the closing procedure. 

We remain hopeful and thankful in waiting. We are glad to see our little guy pull through. This morning the clinical goal is keep John Lee comfortable and wait for the swelling to go down.
