Baby Joseph did very well with the Sx, but took a turn for the worse last night and is now on a heart/lung ASSIST machine that supports his body's function. He is not breathing on his own, but his little heart is tickin' away doing its best. The bypass machine helps support his circulation, but has not needed to completely take over. This will allow his body to receive the circulation they need without taxing his ticker too badly. Tomorrow sometime he will undergo a procedure to correct his aortic valve, which is what they suspect caused the complication from being too small. Although stable right now, he is still deep in the woods and we definitely need the continued prayers! St. Joseph, PRAY FOR HIM!!!

I will continue to attempt to update as much as possible, although I don't expect this to be often. My dear friend Alexis has been posting to her blog, and there is a group going on facebook. We are humbled and amazed at the outpouring of love and support!

well, we all love you so much and can't even imagine what you are going through. I haven't called because I don't want to add anything else to your load. Praying, and more praying going on at our house for y'all!

I'm praying as well! May Joseph Thomas get well soon, and may God hold him as well as your whole family in the palm of His hand!
