It is slowly dawning on me the seriousness of Ethans operation. He has had Open heart surgery before - but this is major. Ethan's heart twin Alexa has just had her rastelli, and viewing her blog opened the floodgates. Im so frightened its untrue.
Please send your prayers to Alexa (http://www.withallmyhearts.blogspot.com/
We have had the appointment with the respiritory specialist. He thinks that Ethan is aspirating food/liquid into his lungs when he swallows and this is the cause of the constant bad chests. They took an xray and it showed no pnemonia which is good. And they took some secretions to grow and see what antibiotics he needs.
They are talking about admitting him for 5 days IV antibiotics immediately before surgery.
So now, we are just waiting for the call - is it wrong that I dont want them to ring? they said the ward has been closed to scheduled surgery as they have had so many emergancies and transplants. But did say sometime in March. How scary is it that there are more and more of us everyday? people starting their chd journey, their lives turned upside down. I really feel for them.
Sending love to everyone and praying for those we know are in hospital - alexa and zeb xx love Sam x
