Out of SURGERY
Just talked to James - Trey is out of surgery. The surgery itself went well - there were a few "bumps". BUMP #1 - They tried for an hour to get an epidural in (to control the pain after surgery) and were unable to accomplish that. The downside of that is they will have to use narcotics to control pain which will prolong the recovery time. BUMP #2 - It was not laproscopic, they had to make an incision on his chest. BUMP #3 - Trey is still on the ventilator. James & Naomi were hoping that he would be able to come off it following surgery, but for now he has to stay on it. The downside of the ventilator is that the longer he is on it - it could damage his lungs.
For now, Trey is in the Pediatric Cardiac ICU & they will re-evaluate him tomorrow to see if he can come off the vent.
James & Naomi have not yet been able to see him, but as soon as they get the X-Rays taken & get Trey settled in, they will be allowed in.
Please be in prayer that Trey will be able to come off the vent ASAP.
Praising the Lord for His protection!
