First of all, THANK YOU so much for all the prayers. We definitely felt them today. We had another long and stressful day.
Baby Todd went back into surgery today to have the Berlin Heart implanted. He was taken into the OR around 9am for what was to be a 3 hour procedure. As the hours past and the updates seemed to not go as good, the day grew longer and longer. Todd didn't come out of surgery until 5pm. The Berlin Heart was successfully implanted, but when they tried to take him off the heart and lung machine his lungs wouldn't do their job. This was a big problem! The surgeon was not satisfied until Todd could be taken off the heart and lung machine, this required more time in surgery. Thankfully they finally have him on the Berlin Heart and off the heart and lung machine.
We are again back to the waiting stage, with God in complete control. Today, more than ever, we relied on our faith in Jesus Christ! Its a hard place to be , but I know comes with many rewards. When we talked to the surgeon before the surgery, he said Todd has had little side affects for what he has been through. He continued to say "Todd is made of something special" several times. I give God the glory for something special!!
