6.3.10 - Seeing PINK!!!

Liam is resting peacefully in recovery. Suprisingly, I had no tears when I saw him. He is PINK! For all of his life, his little body has been various shades of blue... But no more! And his oxygen sats are constant at 97....a number I never thought I would see!! It is amazing and I am so excited for Liam that he will feel better, have more energy and hopefully be able to live life a little more comfortably.

His recovery is going very smooth. Basically tonight they will just keep him calm and sleepily sedated so that he can rest and his heart can rest a little too. He has opened his eyes a few times and has been somewhat alert and even lightly kicking his feet up, but he is pretty quiet otherwise. It's hard because I want to touch him and talk to him, but that seems to get him more active, so I'm trying to just wait it out here on the sidelines and quietly cheer him on from here.

He was running a fever that has come down some in the past couple hours. Other than that his recovery is going pretty smooth so far. Tomorrow they will begin the process of weaning him off the vent and the pain meds once they feel he is ready.

I know we are not out of the woods yet, but I am SO encouraged. I praise God for giving me the strength, but also for giving Liam the strength and healing he needs to make this ride a smooth one.


  1. God is good! I'm glad to hear of Liam's successful surgery. You guys have been in my prayers, and will continue to be.

  2. I'm so glad to hear the surgery went well! Thank you for keeping us all updated on his progress! I can't wait for Owen and Liam to meet someday! Love-Evan Manskey
