Update

Hello all,
Just writing to update everyone on the latest with Braden. We went and saw Dr. Cava on Monday for a follow up appointment. His chest X-ray looked great, so his right upper lobe has opened back up :-) Dr. Cava was a little concerned with Braden's O2 sats and wanted us to start monitoring them at least 3 times a day. If they were consistently below 75%, he wanted to know. Well, they've been fluctuating between 70 -78%. After speaking with his nurse today, Dr. Cava wants Braden to be on a little bit of oxygen up until time of surgery. The medical equip. guy has already come by and delivered the O2. We're a little bummed that he has to be on O2 now, but we know it's for the best. Surgery is still set for November 29th. We'll post if anything changes.

Thanks for checking in on us,
Steph

We continue to pray and wish you ALL the best. Braden seems to be quite a little fighter.

Thinking of you guys... just found you... I'm an HLHS mom, too. Sammy's 9 months, post-Glenn. His sats were dropping into the high 60s before his Glenn, but his cards just let it be until the surgery. He had the Norwood & his Glenn at Boston.

I'm glad I found you. You've got one more mama (and daddy!) out here thinking of you guys!
