Breaking News!

We have a lot to share as a family.

News story #1:
We have a date set for Mason's Fontan Surgery.... Tuesday, NOVEMBER 8th is the big day.
Of course this news comes with some bitter sweet feelings but we are trying to stay focused on the sweet. This is the last major chapter in this story.

We owe Mason's life to everyone at children's hospitial. Especially the Surgeons. So I thought today it would be appropriate if we finally introduced you to our hero's:

Dr. McMullan: He is the main surgeon who has completed Mason's Norwood, Glenn and will also complete his Fontan surgery.

Since the surgeries are major and complicated there is always two surgeons present in the operating room.

The second Surgeon who will be with Mason is Dr. Permut:

We would also like to introduce you to Dr. Cohen.
He is the head of Cadiac Surgery for Seattle's Hospital.

These are the men who take care of Mason in the operating room along with other doctors and nurses.
We ask that as we approach November 8th that you not only keep our family in your prayers but you also keep them and there families in your prayers.

Congrats!!! You do have lots to look forward to! Your upcoming Fontan and predicament sounds all too familiar! We love, love, love Dr. McMullan and our experience with the Fontan was much easier than I anticipated going into it. We'll be thinking of you and keeping Mason (and you) in our prayers. Hang in there, the waiting is the toughest part. Yippee for baby #2!!!!

Loaded Diaper?!?!?

Today's post title comes to you from the one and only Greg Garka... Thanks for the idea babe!

As far as Mason is concernced today was another good day for our little man!
We made our goal and got up and went on a total of three walks. The last walk of the night he spotted the “playroom” and was interested so we stopped and visited with our neighbors while he played. It was the highlight of the day.

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…
