Surgery tomorrow

Harrison's surgery has been set for tomorrow, but I'm not sure what time it will be. The doctor stopped the order for labs to be drawn every 6 hours because Harrison's electrolytes are good! YAY! Bless his heart, he is throwing up stomach acid b/c he's been NPO (no food allowed so he's ready for surgery) since yesterday afternoon. I can tell that it must burn his throat b/c he's been crying some and fussy today. Poor baby! I really appreciate all of your words of encouragement and prayers. God hears every word and is so faithful to provide! I'm guessing that we'll go home either Friday or, more likely, Saturday. We'll see!

Jack Henry got to come up here for one of his feedings today (and yesterday). I don't want him up here too much b/c he's so little and I don't want him picking up germs. At the same time, it's good for him and for me/my heart to get a little nursing and loving time together. I sure do miss his sweet face every minute I'm away from him, but feel that Harrison needs his momma at the hospital more. Besides, he is being spoiled rotten by my Aunt Sharon, Uncle Ira, momma, sister, and daddy at home--I think he's definitely ok. :)

Josh and I are looking forward to Harrison getting his own room post-surgery so we'll all have our own space to hang out/sleep and Josh and I can stop sleeping in the waiting room. The SCU is about to re-open for visitation, so I'm going to go love on my precious baby! (They are closed for rounds/shift change/etc. from 6-8:30am, 2-4:30pm, and 10pm-12:30am)

Hope you're all well and blessed. Sweet dreams! Kiss your babies!

Praying for your sweet boy that surgery goes well and he begins his speedy recovery so that y'all can all get back home.

I'll be thinking of you and your family tomorrow.....especially Harrison!!! I know it's probably been taking a lot out of you, but god wouldn't test us with things we couldn't handle. Reasons for everything....make Harrison a strong healthy boy!
