Out of Surgery

We got the call that Travis was out of surgery and rushed over to the NICU waiting room to talk to the surgeon. The surgery took only a couple of hours and were anticipating good news. Dr. Lamberti said that everything went well and according to the revised plan. Travis is recovering in the NICU. We only get to see him 5 minutes at a time every hour. He has alot more tubes, wires, and machine attached to him, but he looks peaceful. Hopefully in the next few days they will be able to determine why he failed the gas tests. Then the Norwood Surgery will be scheduled according to his strength. Dr. Lamberti said that the Norwood would go much easier if he can recover well from this.

This just puts our timeline for baby Travis to come home back further than we had hoped.

Thank you to all of you who took a second in thinking about our precious little boy Travis. We definitely feel the love and support from all over.
