When Nova was in the hospital, many other children came through CVRU - most of them moved on to NICU or PICU and went home. We also saw more than one that didn't make it home. Then there was the baby that was in the bed next to Nova. I emailed his mother a few weeks ago, but she never replied, and I was concerned about what might have happened.

Yesterday I got an email from her - he's still in CVRU, been there for 8 weeks now - that's about 2 weeks longer than Nova, and he'll be there weeks more. He's had a lot of problems, unusual complications, and now he has MERSA.

I'm really worried about this little guy. I don't know that his parents would be OK with me giving out a lot of details, but I'd love it if you'd all keep this family in your thoughts and prayers.

I hear that CVRU had a rough week in general last week, so a few prayers for them would be appreciated too.

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.
