Post-Op: Day 3

Matthew's common atrial line (an IV that went directly into his heart) was removed today which allowed us to take a short walk. Earlier today, the plan was to transfer Matthew out of the CICU and out to the floor, but due to a shortage of beds on the floor, Matthew gets to enjoy being the "wellest" baby in the CICU. We've had a few issues this afternoon with urinary retention as well as continued output from his chest tubes. These problems will eventually take care of themselves with continued treatment. All in all a good day. It only gets easier from here!

    Thanks again,

  3. He looks adorable. The natives were restless yesterday waiting on an update. I had talked to Nikki but I was mainly checking to see if she was taking care of herself and butter bean. Love you guys. I will be praying for Will because he isn't to good about being separated from the boy. Just remember you're almost done Will.
