Well, Thierry wasn't feeling too good so I took him to a clinic. From there they got scared because his blood oxygen was low (which was his "normal" range) so we were sent to a peds er. From there they called Children's, where my T Bear got his surgery and they wanted to transfer him THERE for overnight observation. All his stats were really good but they did an echo of his heart and his reconstructed aorta was narrowing so they want to catheterize him. However, they don't do surgeries on the weekends unless it is an emergency so he is in the hospital and will get the catheterization monday or tuesday and will stay at least overnight after that. So there is a good chance that he will be in the hospital Christmas Eve or even Christmas day

It hurt so much more now leaving him in the hospital! I stayed last night and left at 6 pm. Im gonna go back around 12 and stay the night again, like one night on one night off.

I'm not in your DDC, but I did read your earlier posts when your son was born. I'm so, so sorry he's in the hospital again. I'll be thinking of you and your family.

Oh Maryann! I am so sorry! What a horrible way to go into Christmas. I'm glad it was caught early. You are such a good mama for being in tune with your baby and bringing him in to be examined when you did. Hopefully the aortic stenosis will stop abruptly and the cath procedure will be all he needs.

Sending healing and healthy vibes your way

Maryann, I am so sorry to hear this. What a rotten way to spend Christmas. Poor Thierry. I am glad they caught it early though and can fix it. I hope he heals very quickly. I will be thinking of you and your baby, mama.

Maryann, I am thinking about you both and praying for Thierry.
You are a good mama for catching this and being on top of things.
I figure its best for him to be in the hospital and healing/getting better on a holiday than at home and at risk even though it is tough, I am sure. ((hugs))
Sending you love & plenty of healing vibes...:

Happily married with two tots (babyboy.gif J 10/18/08) & (babygirl.gif T 5/03/10)

thanks for all the replies Well, TBEar is supposed to get the cath tomorrow, so I am crossing my fingers that all goes well.

On the downside, Petri go sick on Saturday night, vomiting and diarreah, low grade fever and everybody has caught it, so we are not able to go see Thierry until we are better for fear that he will catch this bug too So I haven't been able to sleep there (or breastfeed) since Sunday morning.
