Hard Day

First of all, the surgery was a success! Tomorrow Bryan will post a more detailed update.

Here is the hard part. After surgery, Lucas stopped breathing when the breathing tube was taken out. The anesthesiologist tried to use a bag to get air into Lucas’ lungs to restart his breathing and that did not work. So they quickly put the breathing tube back in. The anesthesiologist said Lucas had a few episodes of not breathing. The longest was 45 seconds without breathing. Then, Lucas had two episodes with us in the pre-op area where we had to use an oxygen mask. Due to the breathing issues, the doctor requested for us to stay the night. Such a scary experience. Crying was a big part of my day.

On the bright side, Lucas is now stable and doing great. He’s our fighter!

As you can see, Lucas doesn’t even remember his breathing issues from 3 hours ago.

    • Lucas adores his Papa & Nani! Thank you for being by our side at the hospital. It was nice to have a shoulder to cry and lean on. We are so blessed to have such loving parents!
