And this morning, the surgeon talked us through the plan for the surgery.

For the last ten plus days,  Reuben has been having on and off bronchospasms.

Even when his breathing has appeared normal, the CT scan showed the other day that he was having spasms.  The pressure in his lung has been very high.  A complication that can greatly impact not only surgery, but post-surgery.

Reuben's heart really needed to be fixed.

And probably the biggest challenge was the high pressure in his lungs.

And in part of the plan for surgery because of the high pressure, they were going to create a hole between his atriums.

And they got in... and they didn't need to.


They fixed the large hole between his ventricles.

And so, right now Reuben is deep in a medically induced lala land.
A ventilator is breathing for him and will continue to do so for the next couple of days.

Thank you to all of you who were praying and have been praying.

I think we saw God do a miracle today.

And that's pretty awesome!

I'll keep you posted.

Thank you all for praying!
