Well I had a very bad night :(

So mom and dad got a call around 4:30 am that I was not doing so good. They brought in my cardiac surgeon Dr. David Bichell, M.D., who is amazing, please click his name to read his bio. They had to open me back up to clear fluid around my heart and lungs. My stats kept dropping and this morning around 9am Dr. Bichell made the decision to put me on the Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) machine.

I have successfully been put on ECMO which basically will do the work of my lungs and for now my heart. My heart and lungs are still working but are not having the stress of powering the rest of me. This will allow my body to heal and get rid of acids that build up after surgery etc.

Mom and dad are pretty stressed and feeling lost at times so please help them out by continue to pray for me.

I love you all, thank you for everything!!!
