Done Done and Done

Eli is DONE with his open heart surgery. It seems so weird to say that. He is done! He is out and he is peacefully "sleeping." The nurses say we wont see any eyeballs or movements till tomorrow sometime. His central line is in his right wrist and his art line is in his left collar bone area. Hes got another little IV in his foot. They have a tube draining his tummy, a foly in and then his drain tube (just one). Its so hard seeing him like this. I Hate it. I can't kiss him, I can't snuggle him, I can only rub his left foot as it the only part of his entire body that is tube free.  But he is alive, his heart is fixed and he is loved! We are so very thankful for this hospital, for the surgeon and for the nurses that are caring for our baby!
