david update {and thank you!}



out little david is doing well.

surgery went great-no issues with anesthesia or the bypass machine.

thank you, Lord!!

last night they tried to take david off the breathing tube

but he wasn’t ready (couldn’t breathe on his own yet)

so they had to place the breathing tube again.

which was a bummer-

but they kept him sedated so he could rest and sleep off the anesthesia.

today he should lose the breathing tube and hopefully a couple other tubes.

we’ll be in the hospital another 4 days or so still.

lots of cuddling and {hopefully} quick healing.

it’s seriously the most humbling feeling in the world

to have people praying for your baby.

thank you for caring about david and for our family.

i am thankful for each of you. my heart is so so so grateful.
