On Wednesday Jonah went in for his weekly weigh-in….he put on more weight in the past week than the previous two weeks…so yes we were rejoicing! He tipped the scale at 8 lbs 3.5 oz; a 5 oz gain! He has begun eating much better, rarely does he not finish his bottles now and we even increased his amount a fourth of an ounce for each feeding.
For those of you interested in learning more about Jonah’s heart condition check out this link or just google AV Canal. As for the actual procedure of the his surgery he will be placed on by-pass while the surgeon mends his heart. As a parent knowing that Jonah is going to endure an open-heart surgery is heart wrenching and I’m having a hard time wrapping my mind around this. We will be leaning on the Lord in those hours of surgery and the days to follow. But as a parent I also know that Jonah’s heart will be fixed and he won’t tire so easily anymore and we’ll begin to see his progress take off!
