I have been praying that I would see baby Mason's mom again and when I stepped out of the unit a few minutes ago, there she was sitting in the hallway! God is so amazing how He sets up even the smallest desires of our heart.
She told me that he is holding his own. He is having different post-op issues than Kate, but he is in the same balancing act. She said that his oxygen levels are higher than they want them to be because of the routing of his blood through his heart. It needs to stop flowing so much through his lungs, and go out more to his extremeties.
She got tears in her eyes when I told her that some of you had written to say that you were praying for Mason. Thank you for blessing her with your prayers and being the hands and feet of Jesus to a young family reeling from the shock of what has transpired for them over the past week!! The dad is having a really hard time with it all. They also have a four year old daughter who needs to be entertained (grandparents are here for that--but they are worried about her getting a cold. There are lots of germs around here!)
Jeff called awhile ago and said that SaraGrace is really missing Mommy and Kate, so she is coming up to the hospital today. Yippee! I miss her so much!
