September 11, 2008 - Glenn surgery day

Seth had his Glenn procedure this am..

This is the 2nd of the 3 staged surgeries for his heart defect. Surgery went well. We haven't seen him yet but he IS in his room in the PICU. We have a nurse we're familiar with (and like) from our first stay.

His sats have been up & down and apparently he's running a fever. Please pray for his recovery. We would like to see his sats stabilize and we expect to see some swelling but would like it if that dissipated quickly. PLease pray his heart/lungs/body adjust well to the new blood flow and pressures created during this surgery!

Since I started to type this, Seth has been moved to his room (310 PICU SHMC). He's doing pretty good, running a bit of a fever. Has had some bleeding from his chest tubes and they're closely watching it to be sure they don't have to take him back down to surgery to search for a clot..

My mom is staying at our house (THANKS MOM) with our big kids. Thanks to all of you for your prayers.
