He's getting his heart!! UPDATE!!! in comments!

Posted by   + Show Post

My nephew Jason aka "Little Man" was taken up to Children's hospital last night to get his new heart last night (5-6-12) Im sending this email to all of you and Im asking everyone to keep him and his family in your thoughts and prayers. He is 6 years old and has been in and out of the hospital since he was born. He is the best little boy. He is always smiling and happy despite going thru surgeries and illnesses his entire life. I would also like to ask you to pray for the family who so unselfishly donated their child's heart so that another child could live. I thank you in advance for your prayers.

Amazing update! Little Man is awake and talking! He got extubated and is just on a nasal candula! He is eating and drinking and he is getting his arterial line taken out today! His mommy sent me this pic! His cheeks are rosey and he has awesome color now! What an amazing Little Man he is. Best Mother's Day gift ever!

He got to get the arterial line out of his leg and then get out of bed for the first time yesterday (Mothers Day). He stood by his bed for a minute and then sat in his chair for a few minutes. I love how his coloring is so good now. Awesome Mother's Day gift!

 This is such an amazing story!  I'm so deeply sorry for the family that donated their child's heart but so very grateful that they allowed this baby boy a chance at a normal life.  It takes a strong family to let your baby go and then decide to donate his/her organs so others may have a chance.  Prayers for everyone!

I talked to Little Man's Mommy this morning (5-17-12) and she said he is doing better then expected! They are doing a cath on him this morning and depending on how that goes he might be able to go home next week! Thats way before they thought! What a little warrior he is! Im so happy right now!!
