My first smile

Luke gave us his first smile yesterday! And we managed to get one on camera this morning. He's doing great. He is off his oxygen and heart monitors (which means much less dinging and a much happier mommy and daddy ... those things can start to make you crazy!) He still has a bit of fluid in his lungs, but they are trying to flush that out by upping his dose of diuretics. Hopefully in the next few days that will clear. He is still breathing a bit fast, but that is because of the extra fluid in his lungs.

Dr. Cohen, our surgeon, stopped by yesterday and again this morning and was so positive. He feels like Luke is really moving through this process well. He reminded us that this IS a process and we need to remember that Luke's physiology completely changed last week and it takes a little time for everything to balance out.

I can't tell you how much your prayers mean to Rog and me.
