Co-arctation of the Aorta | the Surgery
At 7 days old (new?), Ephram had surgery to correct the co-arctation of his aorta. Fabulous doctors, sweet nurses. It went so smoothly. And we felt so lucky that his surgery/case was one of the easiest in the PICU. We saw so many other little boys and girls that were not nearly as lucky as Ephram. If you ever have extra money you'd like to donate to a good cause, find your nearest Children's Hospital. These little people haven't done a single thing wrong in this world yet and are dealing with more than many adults have. So sad.
You better believe that it made me cry to see him hooked up and sleeping like this. But our awesome nurse, Christy, made me feel so much better.
