The surgery is over and went very well. YEAH!!!! He is off ECMO. The perfusionist explained to us that he is basically at the place where he was when he went on ECMO but a bit better. He now has another line in his chest for the dialysis machine. They are going to keep him on that machine for a couple days and then see. Right now he is on the oscillating ventilator and doing very well on it. Praise God!!!

Praise the Lord, I am so happy to hear this good news...I will continue to pray for all of you especially for you and Gary.

I had a wonderful morning with Kyle today. He was teasing me while we played with playdough. His playdough kept on falling to the floor and each time it did we both would laugh and then he just start dropping it on the floor to get a response. He had a good day filled with lots of fun.

You are all in my thoughts and prayers "teacher" Donna
