Post Op

So far so good. Bryce is still a little out of it from surgery this morning but it's like he's a different baby than the one who had this same surgery three weeks ago. He's still on low vent settings and oxygen at 24%, he's maintaining his blood pressure all by himself and his heart rate tells me he's not in pain. He's back on his tummy and peacefully sleeping.

I can't believe what a trooper he's been today. I have renewed faith once again as to what a fighter he is. And that he'll continue to surprise us all by how well he can bounce back.

They're giving him a transfusion right now to help keep his blood pressure up (and since they are always taking but rarely giving) and holding feeds for today. But maybe tomorrow he can get some more mommy milk. Hopefully he will and hopefully he'll be able to pass it more efficiently now that he's moving things all the way through all on his own.

Thanks to everyone for your thoughts, prayers and support - we felt them helping us all three to be brave in the wee hours of this morning and I know the doctors all felt them helping them to be precise and confident in their work. Thanks y'all, we love ya!

  8. Way to go Bryce! I know your mommy and daddy are really proud of you. They love you so much! I'm sure you can feel that though.
