Monday Morning Update

Travis had an o.k. night. They stopped weaning him off of stuff. They then had to raise some of the levels of the respirator. They also had to put him back on nitrous after taking him off of it. They are doing a chest exploration right now to see how everything looks inside of him. Dr. Lamberti will also see if his chest is ready to be closed. His decision will be based on how well the exploration goes.

Will keep everybody updated.

This is a good reminder that we are not out of the woods yet. We were told there would be some ups and downs. We felt that everything was going so well that we thought it Travis would be the exception.


  1. They are a cautious/careful team Cardiolgist, lead Nurses and support staff, they will not move any faster then what is the best for Travis. Expect setback along with all the good results we have seen to date. Your boy will be fine and you both will be back holding him in your arms again soon. Prayer abound.

  2. He is doing great! I know there are times when it feels like he may be taking a step back, but that is probably not really the case. Sometimes they do things before our little ones are ready and then they have to go back and do something else. Travis is strong and will be going home soon.
