I went to work today and Mike stayed home with Blaise who was on bed rest. They did make it to Bomgaars to pick out any farm toy he wanted, our bribe for going through everything. He choose a JD 4020, with a mower. He did really good today, took a nap, played nicely. We got his pressure dressings off and I’m sure that has to feel better!
It sounds like the heart department at Children’s blew up into a chaotic hot mess this week, with lots of emergency cases being admitted. Since Blaise is doing fine, his case is not considered emergent. The findings from his heart cath will be presented during one of the meetings all of the cardiologist, surgeons and heart depts have every Monday morning. Due to all the emergency cases taking priority and a 2 hour timeframe, we don’t think they’ll have time to discuss Blaise this next Monday, so we will have to wait another week. Nothing that we are aware of should limit Blaise from having his big open heart surgery yet this summer. Thank you for all the prayers, thoughts and messages! There is nothing better then small town Iowa or Nebraska!! A few fun “small world” notes from yesterday- Dr. Danford and Dr Delaneys main nurse, who has been there with us since we got the diagnosis, all our check ups and yesterday is married to my elementary p.e teacher. We also learned that Dr Delaney’s (the heart cath surgeon- he’s done all three of Blaise’s) has a marathon coach and she is originally from Treynor and babysat me when I was little! #godsigns
P.p.s. If anyone is better then me at blogger apps on your phone let me know- mine isn’t letting me add any photos
