Home Again

He was just discharged from hospital yesterday evening. I am so glad to be home. He is still sick but not on oxygen or the vent anymore, thank GOD. I pray for his complete recovery. He struggled yesterday when we got home (overwhelmed with his secretions and couldn't get them out). We are exhausted!

Surgery Again

Well, a lot has happened since I last posted. After many tests, it shows that his left diaphragm is not working. It is paralyzed. I will post details later on what this means. NOt only do they need to redo the they need to do a diaphragm plication. All this is the result of the traumatic birth injury that occurred OF COURSE!! This really gets me mad to think he was perfectly healthy and now all this is occurring because my crappy placenta. I am really frustrated, worried, and sad that he still continues to go through crap. He is also throwing up so much that now he is biting his tongue (so hard he makes himself bleed over and over again). So far he is scheduled to go into surgery Thursday morning. He will have the fundo and the diaphragm will be "tacked down" meaning they are going to sew it down so it won't continue to elevated and shift. My poor baby.... will post later
