Its just a short email from me today. Thomas had his Oesophagus joined to his stomach yesterday. Hooray! He did not have a Hypertensive crisis which was the reason that surgery was stopped when he was first born.
He is well and there were no problems today
He was only the second patient in surgery yesterday so he was in at about 10.30 and back at about 1pm. We weren't able to see him until about 3pm. The Nurses and Doctors are all saying that he is very good. He has lots of lines and tubes just like when he was first here. He is a lot more stable now than he was then. He hasn't opened his eyes yet and he is fairly puffy in the face and neck. He is on a ventilator, he is on Morphine and Midazolam and antibiotics as well. He stirs when the nurses give his mouth and nose some suction. He has just had a little wash and his sheets changed so that has made him feel a bit better but made him very tired. He is sleeping now.
I feel as though I have been holding my breath for weeks and now I can relax. Thank you everyone who has been praying.
Lots of love to all of you from all of us,
Julie, Dean, Rowan and Thomas
