Afternoon Update

As planned, Eddie's cannulae came out around noon. No complications. He is still sedated so we haven't been able to talk to him yet, but he seems to be doing really well. He will continue to be on the ventilator to help him breathe for at least several more days so we won't be leaving ICU anytime soon. We really just need to continue observing him for any signs of trouble . . . rhythm problems, bleeding, etc.

It's so nice to have almost full access to Eddie now that the ECMO is out of the room. We're looking forward to that first hug!


  1. Thanks Again for the Update! We are all on Pins & Needles... We love you all!

  2. We love you ALL!
    I know it must be so hard to provide updates as often as you are, but I am so thankful. We are all praying for Eddie, you, the Doctors... All of you.
    We love you!

  3. Happy to hear that things went all right this afternoon. Can't even imagine how hard it has been to have Eddie hooked up to all of those tubes. Hope you get to hug that little guy soon!

  4. Thanks so much for keeping us posted. You are in our prayers. We love you & know the Lord is watching over you.

  5. John - My families thoughts are with you and yours. Please let us know if you need ANYTHING. We live very close to SCH.

  6. I think of Eddie every day. Sending the best I got up to the heavens. I know those armies of angels surround you all at every step. xoxo, Laura Woolsey and family.
