Aaron had a good day, and enjoyed mommy cuddle time. Today was mostly about William, though.
By the time this morning rolled around, I was a bit panicky about our baby boy having heart surgery. We arrived in the NICU around 7 and hung out with William for a while before the procedure. Instead of bringing the babies to the NICU, the OR comes to the baby. Five or six nurses came in with their rolling carts and set up a sterile field, and the NICU was closed to all visitors. We were able to hang out in one of the patient rooms until it was done.
The surgery went very well - he did not need a chest tube, and was stable afterwards. Little guy was completely zonked out after it was done, so hopefully he's getting some good sleep on the pain meds. Later this afternoon, they did need to move him to the jet ventilator (more powerful) and give him a blood transfusion, but this is not a cause for concern.
Aaron's surgery is scheduled for 10:30am tomorrow...so please keep the prayers up for him. Even though the surgery is performed frequently and with good success, it's still heart surgery on itty bitty boys, and we just want it to be over.
On a lighter note - Anna came with us to the hospital yesterday, and was coloring next to me when I was reading and talking to Aaron. When Aaron would open his eyes and look at me, I'd say "Hi baby!" to him...every time, Anna would look up at me like I was strange and reply "Hi mom". It's going to take her a while to get used to not being the only baby :)
