Surgery #3

Hey guys. I'm writing from the OR waiting room. Ethan just went back for surgery #3 to have a broviac inserted. Basically, the original idea to have it placed in his side by the cath lab folks was a no go. The pacemaker was too large of a concern, so it will now be placed in his chest area by a general surgeon.

This all came pretty quickly; even our nurse was shocked when they came down to get him!

Here are some things to be praying for over the next couple of hours:
-that God will guide the surgeon's hands and give them wisdom to make the right decisions on where to place this in his chest
-that Ethan will tolerate the anesthesia and come through the surgery successfully
-that he will have no problems coming off of The Blue Monster, aka the breathing tube/vent
-that this will be a successful solution to our IV issues over the past few days

In other news, your prayers worked wonders last night! Ethan slept for 4 hours at time, as if he woke-up on cue for his dose of Tylenol. He has been a very happy baby today for the most part, and now we're here waiting for what we specifically asked y'all to pray for. Keep it up...we still have a few bridges to cross!
