March 27, 2008

Greetings to all on behalf of Kathryn and Leland and Baby Seth. As of5:00p.m. today, Seth is holding his own and has been declared by onedoctor to be a good candidate for the Norwood procedure which was theexpected treatment for his HLHS heart condition. The plan is for him to have the surgery on Tuesday if there is a consensus of threedoctors. The other two doctors will examine him on Friday.

All things considered, he is doing well and those who have seen him thinkshe looks just great. Both Kathryn and Leland have been able to hold him and Leland has been able to go in and out of the NICU to visitSeth as much as he wants.Seth's immediate future includes maintaining his health with i.v.s andsuch and some genetic testing to determine if there are any underlying defects. Doctors predict he will be in the NICU for at least a few weeks.

We can pray that all the doctors agree on the procedure andthat the surgery goes well.In the meantime, Kathryn and Leland seem very upbeat and relieved tohave this phase over.
