Monday morning

We talked with Dr. Kaza today and sweet Jack is scheduled for his surgery first thing Monday morning. Not a moment too soon. His noisy heart is noisier than ever. They are also keeping a close eye on him to make sure we don't need to do it even sooner, but I think he'll make it until Monday. It was a little rough this morning, but he's doing better now.

Through it all Jack has been quite the trooper. He loves having extra tubes and cords to pull on, and he does his best to entertain the nurses with his busy feet that make it hard for the pule ox machine to get a good reading.

Jack doesn't have any labs or tests scheduled for tonight so I think Hardy and I are going to leave him in the good care of the nurses and both sleep in our hotel room 2 minutes down the road. It's hard to leave but will be so nice to sleep.

Poor little guy! Sorry about all of the needle sticks! They are torture for these little kids! I am so glad that he is getting in on Monday. What a relief! Hawkins and Kaza are WONDERFUL! They did both of Alex's surgeries. We will keep you guys in our prayers. Good Luck-- to all of you!
