Wes' surgery went very well this morning. The surgeon said he had to use and even bigger staple on Wes than he did on Max...and he said that Max's was huge!! That could be because of the 9-day span between their surgeries...but they are not growing that fast!! Wes is still medicinally paralyzed and sleeping like a...baby. He is actually on room air (21% oxygen) right now, but the nurse said that is because he is not fighting against the ventilator. We will take less oxygen anyway we can get it!! Max is still on about 75% oxygen, and his blood pressure has been running high. The doctors are doing a number of tests and such to try to determine why that is. We hope to know more about that today.
Thank-you to everyone who prayed for Wes' surgery this morning. God held him tight through the procedure, and now we pray that his recovery goes as smoothly as the procedure!!
