Next Surgery Date
Hello all: just wanted to let everyone know we have a date for Brandt's next surgery--it will be December 8th, contingent on continued stability of his heart and lung stats, and the results of the hearth catheterization. The heart cath will be November 18 in Charleston, and I will plan to post results from that but probably not much else between now and then. We plan to enjoy every minute of holding and cuddling this little fellow as much as possible between now and then. We also plan to restrict his outings from the house due to the high risk involved during this flu season. In addition to his other regularly scheduled appointments I'm hassling with pulmonologist, insurance, pediatrician, and pharmacy departments to get his RSV shots scheduled--once a month throughout the flu season. This virus can be fatal to babies in general, but in particular to those with weakened heart and/or lung conditions. So our blessings and challenges continue, but without much change from week to week right now...we so appreciate everyone's continued prayer for this amazing little guy, and I will start the updates again when we have something more to report!
