Baby X was supposed to have his heart procedure this morning but due to malfunctioning equipment, it was postponed until Thursday morning. Luckily they realized all this before starting the anesthetics, so I guess that aspect of it was good. But now more waiting, and more time in the hospital. We did get to meet his anesthesiologist and his cardiologist and have them explain it all to us, so that was nice. It turns out that some day, down the road, he will have to have heart surgery to replace the narrowed valve. This procedure is just to delay that until he reaches in adult size. So at least that surgery is far into the future, assuming that all goes well with this balloon procedure.

Thanks to all of you for your prayers. I think his name was added to at least four prayer rolls... even by my sister-in-law's dad, who I hardly know. So thank you for all of your thoughts, prayers and well wishes. We'll keep you posted.

Nancy - I wish I could be there to help you out with your kids or do something. It just sounds like SO much to go through... at least they caught the equipment problem now...
