Colton's Journey

Good morning ladies, long time no chat! I hope everyone and their littles have been well. I've decided to update everyone as quickly as I can and so here we are!

Monday morning Colton had his first open heart surgery in which to repair his Tetralogy of Fallot. The surgery was successful and they were able to save his aortic valve which may mean less surgeries or none in the future.

Yesterday we were all about pain tolerance and control. We kept his pain under wraps and gave him the medicine he needed after surgery.

Today all tubes and wires with the exception of his chest tubes that are still draining fluid from his chest cavity have been removed and my boy was able to finally have a bottle. He still isn't able to communicate normally as he has fluid in his lungs and chest however he can whimper and whine and the little guy gets his point across.

For those who have Facebook and would like to follow his story from pre-op to post-op feel free to friend request me at www.facebook.com/lindseylovesspeed
I'll be updating Facebook as often as I can and I will update this thread as I can. Thank you all for your support, thoughts, prayers, and good vibes. We really appreciate it.

Thank you ladies today we were released from the hospital (just in time to save my sanity) and we are now looking at slight wound care at home and possibly an infection due to the catheter. Poor guy, well ... For the most part his heart is beating well and his oxygen levels are superb. He does still have a slight murmur but we will see in the upcoming weeks how that goes.

That's probably my privacy setting! Go ahead and message me and I'll send you a request. I just changed them because coltons father and family want nothing to do with him when I was pregnant and wrote us off so I didn't want them to be able to see him through me.

I wish I'd been able to write before now Lindsey but know that I've been thinking of you and Colton and remembered he was due to have the surgery in June.

I'm so glad you are both doing okay and out of the hospital!

Hugs Mama!
