Tyler's Surgery


The surgery went as well as expected. They did discovery that some of his arteries in the heart were too short so they had to use some artificial arteries to make them long enough to connect. They have him heavily sedated to keep him calm and so he won't feel pain. They had to give him another blood transfusion. They are carefully watching him for any signs of strokes and blood clots. During the surgery he was put on the heart and lung machine, and when they take him off of the machine, there can be complications, like having Strokes. Now is the really hard part, the first 24 hours are the critical hours.

My daughter Jamie is holding up pretty good, or, as well as can be expected.

I am just amazed at all the machines he is hooked up to. He has a nurse there by his side 24 hours a day. The doctors at Primary Children's Hospital are wonderful. The truly care about Tyler and family members.
I want to thank you all for your nice thoughts and prayers and calls. I do pass on all messages to Jamie and Jon. Thank you and please keep praying for Tyler.
