Sorry for not posting yesterday. We awoke to a surprise. Dr. K had a surgery Tuesday morning so we thought Teagan would not be closed until the afternoon. However, Dr. Hawkins had a cancelation. So he called us about 7:30 and said he could close him, so we hurried up to Primary Childrens. We were worried because last Friday they closed his chest and within two hrs. he was turning blue and struggling to breath. This time everything went smoothly. By the end of the day he was very stable. you can see his chest cover has been removed and replaced with a bandage. (Much Better!) Tuesday morning we arrived to find that he had a feeding tube installed through his nose. This will put nurtrients directly into his intestine and gradually we will move back to his regular diet. The nurse said that he should pick up on eating because he began life as a strong eater, we hope this is the case. He also is no longer connected to a pacemaker. He never actually used it but it was there just in case. You will notice some wires in plastic tubes on his chest, these wires were hooked to the pacemaker. Its nice to see him loosing meds, drains, and wires! I think even his color has improved, we are very happy and thankful for his progress. Also Teagan has a little girlfriend "Gracie" she is only a few days old and has HLHS also. She had the Norwood Surgery Yesterday and has been struggling. Please pray for her and her family along with Teagan. We have learned the power of prayer and hope she will begin improving like our Teagan has. I just keep having the feeling that he is someone special and I'm so thankful to have him in our family.
Attitude is everything. Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle. Live simply, love generously, care deeply, speak kindly, because life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass... it's about learning to dance in the rain.
