Day 2



Another good day! The medications are working on his heart and he is tentatively scheduled for his first surgery next Tuesday. He has been move to the heart unit with his own private room. The grumpy face is because he is hungry. All his nutrition is coming through IV's. All the calories, none of the satisfaction of eating! We had the whole family together for the first time tonight. We felt so blessed having all our children in one room! We want to thank everyone for their love and prayers. They are carrying us and little Ethan through this journey.
Much love-
Greg and Heidi

Heidi, I don't think you're allowed to look that good just after having a baby! How are you sitting up and holding him without even any pain meds?!!

Glad to hear Ethan is doing so well. You can already see such a resemblance to his siblings!

HI! You do not know me, but I am also a heart mom. Our little boy is now two. He had his surgery when he was 3 months. I just wanted to let you know that you are not alone. Our family will keep your little boy in our prayers.

Oh goodness it really made me cry seeing this touching picture of all of your kids and you together... He is so darling Heidi, and I agree you look as lovely as ever, but you always do. I hope you and Greg are getting some sleep, if that's possible. If you or anyone can keep the updates comming it would be wonderful, I have been so worried about everything with you and your family. You amaze me...
