Ferocious Lion Heart

20130520-181351.jpg
Quick update… Owen is doing wonderful and his urine output is good. His blood pressure has been stable. The surgeon met with us and they have decided to schedule the procedure to close his chest tomorrow!!! We are so happy that this will reduce his risk of infection and he can start the road to recovery. Some babies have a hard time adjusting to the chest being closed and the additional pressure on his heart. He can become critical for several hours or days after the procedure and experience some setbacks. He has been doing so well and we are praying that this is NOT the calm before the storm. We ask that you pray that he continues to lose fluids prior to tomorrow’s procedure. We ask that you pray hard for his chest closure surgery and that he does not have any set backs. We are so proud of our little warrior and can’t believe that God trusted us with him! Thanks for being Owen’s biggest fans!
