Mason update #1

We arrived early and got all checked in. Mason did great while we waited.
Since we had our pre-op appointments yesterday and the doctors saw just how active our strong little boy is they decided to give him a drug to make him sleepy before they brought him back.
Greg described it best by saying that after he took it; it was like he was drunk. We thought it was funny so of course we took out the video camera.... In the next few days we will try and post it.

Now the hard part.... No turning back.

Mason went to his doctor without any hesitation... Thank you medicine.

Now we were left alone. So we sit and wait.

During today's operation we will get four pages:
- the first one will be that they are ready to begin the operation. If you can believe it takes a few hours just to prep him in the operating room.
-the second page - he is one the heart and lung machine
-the third page - he is off the heart and Kung machine
-the forth page - his surgeon is ready to meet with us
-and then of course there will be pages to just give us a status update.
Once Mason is done with surgery they will take him to the CICU: cardiac intensive care unit.
Then we should be able to see him.

Thank you all for your prayers and support! We are grateful to have such amazing people in our lives.

I will continue to update as we get information.

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…
