Day Three: Prayers Please

Last night they moved a twin bed into our room so that Matt and I can trade off cuddling and comforting our little guy. He's pretty jumpy with all the people poking at him these days and the nurses feel he'll need less sedation if we stay as close to his side as poissible. Assignment accepted.

Our little sleepover was going well last night until Mac started puking. Poor thing. It took a lot out of him and put me on the hunt for a washing machine to clean his favorite blanket. The blanket was washed, dried and delivered just in time for him to clutch it while they placed another IV in his wrist.

We're hopeful the activity and trauma subside quickly.

Unfortunately, chest xrays this morning showed hazy lungs and some partial collapse. Buddy is breathing much harder today. Prayers please for the fluid to clear quickly.

We're hopeful the news will improve soon.

I have checked up on your cute blog from time to time since I joined the world of "heart moms!" My mom (Wendy Christoffersen) told me today that you were back in Philadelphia for the Fontan. You are all in our thoughts and prayers...what a darling boy that McKay is! -Casi Blanchard

Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your beautiful little guy McKay! My son, Jackson, age 8, has a list of little guys that he prays for every night. Mason is on that list and now he will add McKay. God bless you and may you feel His loving arms around you!
