Update on Brennan

Brennan is doing awesome! They took him off the prostaglandin at 2:30 am this morning. He has been doing really well, keeping his saturation levels in the mid to high 90's. His pulse is strong and all other vital signs continue to be great.

We talked to the attending pediatric cardiologist Dr. Sue. After their analysis of Brennan they do not think he will need the B.T. shunt and will not require his repairing open heart surgery for 6 months! This continues to be the best that we could have hoped for!

They are moving him from the PICU to the normal nursery here at Primary's. If he starts eating good(we haven't even attempted to start feeding him yet) then we will get to take him home in a couple days.

As with all heart kids, his conditions could quickly change but he is looking really good. Thank you so much for all your prayers and fasting. We are truly blessed.

Hip Hip Horray!!! We are so happy for your family! He is simply beautiful. Emma didn't have her first surgery until 6 months as well. Since it is the exact same defect and surgery, feel free to contact us if you have any questions or need any extra ears to listen.
