Surgery. Ventilator. Prayer.

Day 119
Weight: 5 lbs 2 oz

Samuel will have his hernia repair surgery tomorrow. Please please please pray that it goes well. We would like for him to come off the ventilator and have a quick recovery. It is scheduled for 1:00 tomorrow afternoon but they may try to work him in as early as 8:30am depending on cancellations.
Samuel wasn't dropping his heartrate today like he was yesterday. We think it must have been from the eye drops. However......he didn't have a happy day. His stomach seemed to be bothering him - I've never heard him cry so hard before. He just didn't stop. It made me sad to see him so upset.
I asked the doctor about his eye exam and he seemed to attribute the change to the fact that a different doctor examined Samuel and that he wrote on the form "poor dilation." Hopefully when they redo the exam next week, it will look better.


  1. I've been following your blog for a while. Samuel and the doctors will be in my prayers.
