Baby Sam

I just got the most recent update on my friend Jen’s son Sam. The good news is that Sam’s overall heart function continues to improve. The not so good news is that his aorta has re-narrowed in one place, necessitating more surgery early next week. This time the surgeon plans to go in from his side, between Sam’s ribs, and the team thinks they will be able to avoid the heart and lung bypass machine.

So scary, yes, but not nearly as scary as the open heart surgery baby Sam had when he was only 7 days old.

Please keep them all in your thoughts and (if you are so inclined) prayers.  This is one amazing baby, and I’m hoping this will be his last surgery for a long, long time. Rally for us just one more time, Sam!
