Bennett Is Recovering!

I'm sitting here with Bennett and he's doing really good but he is moaning some so they are giving him more pain meds.
Now IV team is coming up to check on his IV's because he doesn't seem to stop moaning so the nurse said a vessel could be inflamed. Please pray that they can figure out what is causing his moaning because he shouldn't be in pain like that, his blood pressure is a little high too, due to pain.

They said I should be able to offer him a bottle tonight. Here's some pictures of my strong little boy before and after surgery...

Smiling at mommy right before going into surgery

Repaired heart, praise God and thankful for Dr. Spray!!

We are so thankful that Bennett made it through safely and so far, so good!

Just got word from the nurse that she wants me to try and feed him because she thinks he may be hungry. She also does not think the pain is from the IV (different nurse) and that he hasn't had adequate pain meds-there is a fine line between too much meds and respiratory rate so they can't give him too much because it can effect his breathing. So, sorry about the conflicting post-just finding all of this out.


  1. So happy things are going well. He is so cute & love that smile !!! Praise God so much HUGS & PRAYERS 4 ALL OF YOU !!!

  2. Glad to hear that the surgery went well. He looks great in the photo. Hopefully the moaning gets resolved. Wysdom didn't stay quite the first day. he was thrashing about and they had to increase his meds and try tylenol. Sometimes med's don't work as well on our little ones. From what I understand they are usually pretty knocked out the first couple of days. Take care and I will check back later to see how things are going.

  3. Oh that's exciting! Giving a bottle to a hungry baby after having gone through surgery is such a peaceful feeling.

  4. so glad to hear all went well, he will ramain in our prayers.

  5. PRAISE THE LORD!!! I'm so glad all is going seemingly well......feed that poor little guy! Hopefully that will help his moaning! Keep on going with the updates when you can and hopefully you'll be going home soon!!

    Will be praying still as he recovers and as you deal with it all!

    Love you!

  6. So how are YOU doing? This post brought tears to my eyes, probably because I know this will be Max in less than 30 days. But it makes my heart ache to think of your little Bennett moaning in pain. How soon 'til you can hold him??!!

  7. WOW that brings back memories!!!!

    Hope the moaning has stopped! :)

  8. This is the best news. And, I read above, already eating, hooray!!!! Thank God.
