We're getting close


Mason't next surgery is quickly approaching, but it feels like we have had him home for a long least to me it does. It certainly feels like it's been longer than five months. I would have thought it would be the other way around.

Anyway, Mason had a Cardiac Cath last week where they were able to go inside and take a good look at his heart and how everything is functioning. The doctors said things looked good (all things considered) with no big surprises. Dr. Chun, Mason's cardiologist will present the information from the Cardiac Cath to the surgeons this Monday, 11/30. Once the information has been presented the team of doctors and surgeons they will schedule his second open heart surgery called The Glenn. This surgery will most likely take place within the next 2-4 weeks.

Thanks for checking in, Mason is doing very well along with his Mother and I. We'll update you all once we get confirmation of his next surgery date.

God Bless,

His appetite decreased today but that is to be expected since he hadn’t yet had a bowel movement (in 6 days)– however about 60 minutes ago things changed in that department and I am happy to report his bowels are working and back in action…

During his echo he was again a crowd pleaser and was on his best behavior. The technician said that he was the best 3 year old she has done. It is so funny; he gets upset when something is about to happen and he doesn’t understand what. He tells us he is scared and then after we explain to him what they are going to do and that it won’t hurt – he is…
