Because he is more stable on the prostaglandins, we were able to hold him again. This has been so much fun for Kirsten and I. Also, while we hold him, we can feed him breast milk through a bottle. Kirsten, also, got to kiss his head for the first time. These normal mother-son interactions have been great considering we do not get to take him home for a while.
The surgery will start on Monday around 7am.They are going to move Judah to the PICU (which deals with cardiac patients after surgery) on Sunday morning sometime so they can monitor him before surgery. We are looking forward to the surgery because it will mean we are on the road to recovery...but it is also scary to think about. As we get to the final day before the surgery we need prayers that we will let God be in control of this whole procedure and remember that he cares for Judah just as much as we do.
