At Home

Big sister Kaitlin is happy to have Mason home!


The kids made this cute sign & hung it on the garage.
Mason was so happy to be leaving the hospital.Mason is quite excited to hear he gets to go home!

Mason is doing well at home. Our nights have been long as expected, but hopefully his sleeping will get better as he continues to recover and feel better. I think he must still be having headaches, because he is just not his smiling self yet. He is on 1/4 liter of O2 to help keep his pulmonary artery wide open and so he does not have to work as hard. They said at his clinic in 2 weeks they will do x-rays and check sats, but he probably won't have to be on it anymore after that. He also came home with a feeding tube to help with feedings if he tired out and also it makes giving medicine a whole lot easier. But that lasted only 2 days! I think it was bugging him more than it was helping, so the N.P. told me just to take it out because he is eating just fine.

It is so great to have him back home so much quicker than the 1st surgery. We are so grateful for all the prayers, child care, meals, gifts, and all the loving support.

Summer,
I watch all of this with tears streaming down my face. Love the music. Our families are so similar, it's easy to try to put my self in your shoes. I would fold from the strain. I know I would. I am in awe of the strength and faith you're approaching each day with. Mason is so precious and beautiful. My prayers go up with everyone else's...
