So one week today Jack will be having the Stage 2 Surgery, the Glenn. I can't believe how fast 4 months have gone by. It seems like we just got home and now we have to go back again. From what I have read from other heart moms, this surgery has been the "easiest" one. It is a less invasive surgery and does not require Jack to go on Bypass again. I think that it isn't as long either. The first one was 7 hours long.
This one seems really hard on me though. Not that the first wasn't hard to see Jack go through open heart surgery. I guess it's just that I know Jack so much more now than I did before. I spend every waking moment with him so I think handing him over to the surgeons and doctors is going to be the hardest thing yet. I am anticipating a good turn out though. Jack has been so strong and we haven't had any problems in between these surgeries, I think he is going to remain my little fighter and get through this like a champ.
We go in on thursday for the Pre-Op appointment and then back the next day for surgery. We should be at Childrens 5-7 days if all is well. I will try to post as much as I can on friday. But I can not promise as I know its going to be a hard day. Please keep my little heart warrior Jack in your prayers!!
