I have a post op picture - I won't post it. Let's just say it is heart breaking.

He is a tough tough kid, I have no doubt he will recover, but it is really difficult seeing him like that.

Everything is functioning the way it should, now it is on to the hard road of recovery.
Keeping the family in our prayers. Stay strong.

The little guy is going home today.

He is so happy to be getting out of the hospital - I am amazed at how quickly he is recovering.

Please keep up the prayers and good vibes!

The other twin is going in on Thursday morning to the Cardiac cath lab to fix his leaking pulmonary valve - they hope to be able to do the entire thing through the cath so they can avoid opening up his chest like they did his twin brother. If they can do this, he will only be in the hospital one night, and the recovery is a lot easier.

Prayers and good vibes are needed again!

Sending prayers and really hoping he doesn’t have to go through the operation like his brother. It breaks my heart to hear of something like this happening to a child.
