Well, yesterday started out not being a very good day. Trig was throwing up, his heartbeat was irregular and they had to put the tube back in to drain some fluid off. I have been up here without Keith since Monday and it just seemed like a lot to deal with by myself. But by the end of the night everything had kind of worked itself out and they were able to take his oxygen tube out. I woke up this morning to lots of snow in Park City, so I was stuck there until the afternoon when it cleared up a bit. I called Trig's nurse to tell her that I wouldn't be there until the afternoon and she told me that they had taken him off all of his medicines and that I would be able to hold him when I got there. I was so excited to be able to hold him and I couldn't believe that I was stuck in Park City. I decided to go to the outlets while I waited....I think it helped me pass time more quickly and not go crazy. Anyway I am writing from the hospital and have been able to hold Trig a lot today. It is so wonderful to finally have him in my arms. He still has a feeding tube and a few tubes to drain fluid so it is still a little awkward to hold him, so I can't wait to be able to munch on his little neck when he gets rid of the rest of the tubes. He is just too stinkin cute!!
Trig was born with a Congenital Heart Defect called Transposition of the Great Arteries. When he was just a few hours old he got to go on his first helicopter ride. He was Life Flighted to Primary Children's where he underwent open heart surgery when he was 6 days old.
