Surgery pics

Jax had a pretty good night. They did an x-ray of his belly to make sure there was no fluid or air in his abdomen. They started antibiotics for the fever. This morning they took him off the high flow oxygen and he is on 2 liters now. The plan is to go to the floor later today. If you want to come up I will be here pretty much all day. Right now we are in PICU bed 31. Of course I don't know what our room number will be when we move. You can call up and find out. Thanks for the prayers, I know thats why he does so well.
Before surgery.
Right after surgery.

His cecostomy (chest tube) the button will be put in after six weeks.





Right after they extubated him. You can see the blood oozing from his line.

Seeing those pics reminds me of the times when our little Isabelle had surgery. It just breaks your heart and at the same time it made me so thankful that we have come so far in medicine to be able to help these little people. Praying his recovery will be quick.

oh sweet baby Jaxson, so hard to see them right after surgery. I would come up but have bronchitis and the flu - not a wise idea to visit PCMC right now! You'll all continue to be in my prayers!

First off, I have kept Jax in my prayers daily, I have been having a hard time getting your page to load.(I am not sure what the problem is)Was very glad I finally got it too load today. I am glad to see/hear that surgery is over and he is doing ok. I hope you don't have to remain in the hospital very long and that he recovers quickly. Many hugs to your whole family and extra ones for you and Jax!
