A Little Update

We don't have much to update yet since the doctors haven't finished assessing Chase's situation. The good news is he's doing great! We should hear from the cardiologists and surgeons late tomorrow or early Friday. Right now we're guessing Chase will have the Norwood surgery early next week. What we have heard so far is he is close to a "textbook" case for HLHS and will be a single-ventricle baby.

We did get to spend some time with him yesterday and see his beautiful face. Late yesterday they decided to put in a breathing tube, not because he was having trouble breathing but as a preventative measure. I'll try to explain more on that later. Here's a pic of our cutie!

Here's one after the breathing tube and ng tube were put in. I still think he's a cutie!!!

Please continue to keep us in your thoughts and prayers! I'll share more info later. Right now we're waiting for a surgery case to settle in at the PCICU so we can see him again!!!
