26 Days Post Op

We have finally hit "normal"!

Iain is doing so well, these days.  This past weekend, we stopped all pain meds and he's not showing any signs of pain.  We are so thankful that he is healing so well!

His incision is looking good.  He still has some puffiness and his chest isn't flat.  But the incision is already fading.  We have heard that as he grows, that incision will be come less and less obvious.  A huge benefit to the the quick healing of little babies!!

We have another check up tomorrow, but last weigh in, he was 13 lbs 4 oz.  I'm expecting to be close to 15 lbs!!  He's getting heavy, but we are thankful that he's gaining weight.

It's hard not to compare each child's milestones, so I'm trying to keep all my expectations low.  His neck is getting stronger every day.  We are limited in what he is able to do.  No tummy time for a few more weeks.  I think this has affected his development, but I don't think there will be long term effects.

What the Doctors have said so far, is baring anything unexpected, Iain will most likely NEVER need surgery on his heart again!! We are so thankful for this outcome.  

Our hearts of full of thankfulness for God's kindness in Iain's life!
