Almost there!!

Surgery went great yesterday...we now have a new shunt and they did his circumcision while he was under anesthesia. The night recovering was a little rough. Cannon had another breathing spell, actually two, where he quit breathing momentarily. I don't know why he does this, neither does anyone else. My suspicion is that his throat was irritated from being intubated. He did this before when he came back from surgery for his central line. Last night he did not want me to put him down, wouldn't lay in his bed. So we slept in the chair all night on my chest. It was a long night for Mommy,but we made it through. Today has been about resting and recovering. He has slept a lot, but has began eating better and better each feeding time. We are counting down the hours. He was supposed to get 48 hours of antibiotics after surgery before we can go home. Our afternoon antibiotic tomorrow will be 48 hours. So...we are very close to home!!!! We didn't see Dr. Roberts today so hopefully we will see him early in the morning and he will give us the all clear.
Thanks again for all your continued thoughts and prayers. They have carried us through this stressful and tiresome time. We love you all, and look forward to getting to see everyone once we get out of the hospital and settle into everyday life.
Trey, Ali, & Cannon

All the pics are just precious. I was so happy to get the message that he was sleeping in his own bed. Hope all is still well and improving daily.

Big hugs,
