Nova is sleeping like a champ, eating a little more and a little more - they up the feeding amount every 4 hours so he's already eating more than he was when I left the hospital. I'm telling you, a friggin' full belly is ALL it takes to make my boy happy. If they'd have just FED him after surgery, he'd be home by now! OK, maybe not HOME, but you know what I'm saying, right? Food, damn it, the boy needed FOOD.

Still no plans (that they're telling me about anyway) to do that elusive catheterization, and, they intend to try again to extubate him on Wednesday. Surely, surely it will work this time.

Nova was our second child to be born with congenital heart defects. We lost our daughter at 12 days after open heart surgery in 2001. Nova was born 12/2/05, with Pulmonary Atresia with VSD. He lived 6 weeks after surgery, and passed away on April 6th, 2006. This blog is his story, and the on-going story of how our family is dealing with the loss of our beautiful boy.
