Aidan turned 3 years old today, I can't believe he is 3 already! I am not able to be there with him but we will celebrate again once I get home. He is with his Daddy, Nana, Aunt Crystal and cousins. Happy Birthday my sweet baby boy. Mommy loves you so much!
It has also been a week since Jacob's surgery. He is still doing very well. They are weening him off of the oxygen. It keeps falling out of his nose and he doesnt seem to mind at all. His Oxygen levels remain good. This is a very good thing. He is off all IV meds now and gets everything orally. He is just about ready to move to the step down unit. They are also going to start giving him bottles tomorrow so we can work on getting the feeding tube out.
I can hold him whenever I want now which I love! Here are some pictures of me holding him yesterday. It was second time I have ever held him and boy did it feel good.
We also got to meet Kenny yesterday. He is a 21 year old HLHS Survivor. It was so great getting to meet him and his family. He was one of the first to ever have these surgeries and his mother was told there was only a 10% chance of survival. Now it is 93%, we have come a long way. I know how scary it is for me so I can't imagine what she must of felt. I have so much respect for her and what she went through. If it were not for mother's like her, Jacob wouldn't have had this chance. Thank you Kenny for coming to meet Jacob.
As always thank you for all of the prayers and support.
Enjoy the pictures!
