Big Day!

Joshua has a big day today! They are going to close his chest! The surgeon will come between 2 of his scheduled surgeries today, so we aren't sure exactly what time he be here.

He has officially been weaned off of 2 of his heart meds and he is holding his own. Pray that after his chest is closed that he continues to maintain good blood pressure and doesn't have to go back on the meds for a while. (Although if he does, it won't be the end of the world....Joshua is calling the shots after all!)

I will update more after his chest is closed. Thank you so much for the continued prayers and support!

Hurray! I know I can't wait to hear those words "time to close the chest"... it just seems like such a big step in healing. I'll be praying it goes SO smoothly.
