She grabbed him from me and told us to go in the hall. People started running. I heard people yelling "DiCarlo's coding". His surgeon came running. Lots of commotion then the social worker ushered us into a nearby conference room. It felt like forever that we were in there....praying, watching the rain on the small window. The social workers called our family. Soon, they were there with us. They put him on ECMO. The nurse and Dr. Lamberti came in with tears. She said they thought they were able to keep good p waves for the entire CPR process (all 2 hours of it)....and that his heart started again. Those were good signs in a situation as horrible as this. They'd keep him on ecmo and let him rest. The next day they would run test to see what effect everything had. We were so hopeful........
I am in tears reading this and wish I could go back in time and change what happened. I will never forget your amazing little boy. He will always be in my heart and his smile will continue to inspire us. Travis' life was cut way to short but he touched so many lives and continues to fill our hearts. I will be spending today honoring your beautiful little angel.
Love and hugs from Jake and I
