Both surgeons found Scott, myself, Ricci (Scott's Dad) and Becky Smith on the edge of our seats in the waiting room at about 3:15pm. They described Duncan's surgery as "text book -" everything went totally as planned. We let out HUGE breaths of relief!!!
We are both elated and exhausted. Two to three weeks of hard work lie ahead of us, as Duncan both recovers from the surgery itself, gaining his strength back, AND learns to feed. He has had no milk of any form since birth (receiving calories through an IV instead), so he has some catching up to do. We will be balancing care of Jackson here at home with visits to see Duncan at Children's Hospital.
Thanks to EVERYONE who has been praying and supporting us. We are happy to say that thanks to church, family, friends, and friends of friends, we have a refrigerator filled with meals, laundry caught up on, cleaning under control, and tons of prayers being lifted to God. I would like to extend a special thanks to our "Angels" who have been doing deeds of all kind to help out.
Moments after receiving the news, Scott and I start the phone tree!
Baby Boy Duncan only an hour or so post-surgery. He was squirming around, as usual!
The breathing tube comes out tonight or tomorrow... otherwise the only difference between pre-surgery and post-surgery is the white bandage marking the incision for his surgery. He's our little WARRIOR!
