Seth's Recovery

Hey, this is Randy . . .

I just got home from the hospital. Not much was going on to be honest. Seth was groggy and whimpering when he was awake, but he slept most of the day. He was eating well, and his diaper output was good, too.

His blood pressure has remained high, but not dangerously high. Our nurse couldn't detect a pulse in his feet (this is critical as those of you who have been following along know), but the doctor found it. (I'm not sure our nurse could find her own pulse-- she's easily the least competent person we've had help us.)

So Seth would sleep, wake and whimper, eat, and sleep again. I kept telling him to stop being such a baby, but he never laughs at that, even though it's obviously hilarious. He did give us just enough smiles (2 to be exact) to let us know he still recognizes us and loves us. And though he appears to be in some pain, he didn't once complain that his aorta hurt-- brave boy!

We are happy to be through this part of the procedure, though I'm pretty sure Natalie is in for a long night!


  1. So glad to hear that he is doing well! Prayers for all of you.

  2. I totally laughed at "stop being such a baby".
