Update

Well, we were admitted today but to the hospital that me normally go to which is nice. The other hospital has it set up so you have to share, this one has it so that each kids gets their own room. Very posh. They put yet another Holter monitor on him and he is telemetry monitoring but at least we are not in the PICU. As we walked on to the pediatric floor one of the nurses asked us if our ears had been burning. Apparently moments before she had been talking about Evan and then bam there we were.

We have had a bit of a scramble trying to have Harry taken care of. My husband had taken off a lot of time for Evan's surgery so he is needed back at work. They have been pretty understanding but he still has a job that needs doing. My sister is flying out for a week and hopefully that is all the childcare that we will need.

There is a strong possibility that Evan will have to have his pacemaker replaced which is why we were admitted. They did not want to have it suddenly fail on us. It is already cranked up as high as it will go and was still missing beats. I guess I should not be too surprised about this sort of thing happening. Evan has a horrible post op curse. He ended up with the pacemaker when a day after his first surgery his heart rate plummeted. His stroke happened after his second surgery. Evan's cardiologist even told us when we were first talking about scheduling his surgery that she was not too worried about the actual surgery, it was the recovery that she was worried about. At least this was caught before things got too bad.

Oh, I'm so sorry you are back in, and struggling with Harry, but at least they are heading things off before its all crisis mode, yes!

Continuing prayers and hugs to you both! It will all be over soon!

My little second cousin has had the same kind of problems with his pacemaker (he has VATERS association.) :( The good news is that once he hit 6 the problems after surgeries seemed to stop. We're still hoping that that really is the end of the problems for him, but things are looking good for now.

I'm praying for your little boy, hoping that he'll get through this healthy and strong and that the end of the recovery problems is in sight.
