Today was a good day.

Daylen had his heart cath this morning, which went really well! Our cardiologist was able to show us the videos of his heart and we got to see where and how the shunt was working! Kinda neat.

On the unfortunate side, the Dr. mentioned scheduling his hemi-fontan in 6 weeks :( that's so soon and he will be 4 1/2 months old. I knew the minute he told us that every day til the surgery, I will find myself bawling my eyes out at least once a day. It's a bummer that he has to go thru this, but if he didn't he wouldn't be here with us today.

I will receive more detail about his surgery plan tomorrow so keep an eye out!

(Daylen was called a female twice today btw! not sure if it's the name or the hair???)

  1. oh my gosh, he's SO stinkin cute!! I'm sorry to hear about the surgery so soon :( I think it will be the same for Dylan.... his cardiologist told me that they like to do the second surgery in between 3 and 4 months old! yikes! so fast! But I guess its better to get it over with? I think about you and Daylen every day! I hope he continues to have a good day and night. Hang in there girl! <3

  2. He is so cute. I know how you feel about finding out the date for the Glenn...I spent a lot of time crying too. Hope has so little hair that we get 'what a cute little guy'...even when she is decked out in pink.
