I received word that he was out of surgery and being taken into recovery. They said I could come meet him in the hallway as he rolled by to give him a kiss. So that is exactly what I did. I was walking so fast down the hallway, my dad even commented on how fast I was going especially since I NEVER walk fast than my dad. (his legs are about twice as long as mine)
I was able to catch them and see my baby! He looks great! He has color in his face, which I was not expecting. I was expecting him to be white as a sheet. His little cheeks are a little rosy, and the rest of his face looks pale, but peachy.
Dr. Starnes (the surgeon), came and spoke with me and said that everything went very well. He was able to do the surgery the way that we were hoping, and will not need anymore surgeries. They were even able to close up his chest, instead of leaving it open like we were told may have to happen depending on fluids and swelling. (Kollin is VERY relieved to hear this one)
So YAY! My little guy passed with flying colors! Now we just need to pray for a fast and good recovery!
Thank you to EVERYONE that has been thinking of Tanner and our family during this, terrible time. I am hoping that we can look back at this and be stronger because of it, and be able to share our story with other families like so many of you have shared with me about your little ones that have gone through similar ordeals.
I will keep updating on the recovery and everything else. So please keep us in your thoughts and prayers.
Thank you again and again and again and again..........!
