Day by day more lines are being removed from Ethan. The withdrawls are slowly getting under control and the swelling is almost gone. Today the other chest tube, an IV line to his heart, and an arterial line were removed from his little body. Although there are a lot of lines to go, we could finally HOLD him again! What a special time it was. What a gift Ethan is in our life. Everyday is a miracle. Greg brought down the kids today and they got to see and hold Ethan (briefly). It was the first time we were all together as a family since before Surgery.
We have met several other families on the heart unit and have come to love the staff there. It is an amazing place! This is a special experience we are meant to have, and I hope and pray we learn everything the Lord wants us to learn. We also continue to be in awe at the service and prayers that are being offered in our behalf. Thank you.
Greg and Heidi
