surgery in the morning...


Where jacob will be living for quite some time..
Baby jacob is having surgery in the morning.  I spoke with the dr tonight and although the procedures themselves are not time consuming or difficult, the risk is in stressing Jacobs fragile little body.  He is now off the ecmo machine and using the ventilator at about 70%.  I asked the nurse how long he might need it and she said different for every baby, but that she thought it would be a few months.  she said that he might still be on it when he has his heart surgery.  I asked how long she thought he would be at the hospital .... 
she said could be 6 months.....

viv,
I am praying hard for little Jacob. Last night, I talked to MacKenzie, the niece of my best friend from growing up in South Dakota. She is now getting her MSW in the same program Kat did...doing so well. I remember the worry and the surgery and that was twenty-five years ago. I pray that Jacob will do as well.
Love,
Suz
