Lewis went into surgery around 8:15 this morning. He went on bypass around 10:00 & we havent heard anything else yet & its been almost 3 hours. im going a little crazy waiting & not knowing whats going on downstairs with my little guy.
Also after reviewing the Cat Scan the doctors found another complication with Lewis's heart that just makes it even more difficult to fix... We already knew he had a double outlet right ventricle, VSD (a hole between the two ventricles) & an interrupted aortic arch. Then yesterday they informed us that his two many arteries are transposed so that makes it even more difficult to fix. The surgeon said his surgery is one of the most complicated surgeries they can perform so that didnt make us feel any better. Also he mentioned risks of doing this kinda surgery such as him having strokes or seizures, his kidney going bad or holes in his heart... Just basically to expect anything & everything could possibly happen once surgery is done. It will truly be a miracle if our little guy makes it thru all this... The first 24-48 hours are the most crucial so ill be sure to try & keep everyone updated.
The good news is they are going to attempt doing all the repairs at one time..
We have put our trust & faith in the Lord & know it is truly the will of God & we need to have faith & align our wills accordingly. This has been very difficult for Alvin & I to see our first child going thru so much pain & suffering. If we could switch spots with him we would in a second. We have soo much love for Lewis & are so grateful he is ours FOREVER & we will be an eternal family.
We again want to thank ALL the family and dear friends for the support, prayers, fasting & love to help our family through this difficult trail.
enjoy these pics of our little guy! we think he is the cutest baby ever...
