I am Not as Strong as I appear. I enjoy weakness from time to time. We are a homeschooling, special needs family of 6. My 4th son has a Congenital Heart defect, and my oldest has ADHD. I am a survivor of Adultery and mental abuse. I learned that you never really know someone until you are strong enough to stand up and walk away. I love and protect my children, with everything I have. My life might seem unbelievable, but I couldn't make this shit up if I tried! Stick around & let's get to know each other.

Another Successful Surgery :)

Owain came out of surgery around noon today,Yippie! He is doing well. He still hasn’t woken up yet & is still on a bit of pain killers. We are waiting for his pain meds to wear off and most likely they will be able to take him off the respirator early this evening. He was starting to wake up and wiggle around a little bit, but then they had to give him some more pain meds because he is not quite ready to come off the respirator.

I have been so nervous about this surgery and I am so glad it is over! He still has several months of recovery, but knowing this is behind us is such a relief, I feel like a huge weight has been lifted.

It does look like he is going to be in the hospital for about a week and I am prepared to stay here with him most of that time. He might even be able to move out of the PICU by tomorrow night or Thursday morning. He is in a shared room with two other cardiac babies, so I can’t stay in the room with him overnight. We are staying in a hotel tonight, but I hope that he does well enough that he can move out to the Pediatric floor by tomorrow night so I can stay in his room.

I haven’t been very hungry the past few days, but I am starving now. I am going to head down to the cafeteria and see if I can find something to eat, I could use a nap too!

Thanks for all of the lovely prayers and support.
