Prayers, positive thoughts, and good vibes appreciated for this little guy.

Long story short, I became a grandma on Sunday night. His name is Carter. We knew from halfway though the pregnancy that he would need heart surgery. He has been doing great and is a strong, healthy baby otherwise. This sweet little soul has a great medical team and the most amazing parents looking after him. And we would be grateful for any prayers or positive thoughts/vibes (whatever works for you) that you’d like to send his way.

He's adorable. I'll be praying for Cater, his family, and the doctors. I hope he continues to stay strong, the surgery goes well, and that little Cater has a smooth and speedy recovery. 🙏 💙

By the way, congratulations on becoming a Grandma!! How exciting!! 🤗🎉🎊

Aw, thanks everyone. I am so excited to be a grandma.

I’m going a little nuts trying to stay busy and rest at the same time (getting over a mild case of covid but am absolutely fine).

He went to surgery this morning and should be done in the late afternoon. I really appreciate the prayers and positive thoughts. This is a great community!

@luvmyherd I’m so glad mom and baby (well not a baby anymore) did so well. That’s great to hear. After 39 hours of labor, my daughter’s blood pressure plummeted and the baby coded right after they’d decided to do a c section. So it turned into an emergency for both mom and baby. But they were already setting up for the c section, so the doctors were able to act immediately and everyone bounced back quickly. So very grateful for that.

@Tanya, that was so beautiful. Thank you.

And thanks to everyone for prayers, love and support.

Carter is out of the actual heart surgery part and doing well. They still have to close him up (or they may leave him open, not sure yet) and then gradually rewarm him because they lowered his core temp for the open heart surgery.

Gosh, what a a lot for a tiny body to endure. Ours did not require surgery but the emergency that caused the Csection made the baby unable to breath. A full week in NICU and we brought her home to a driveway lined with cheering family. Needless to say, that week was spent praying.
May your outcome be as positive.

Carter is completely out of surgery and doing well. He’s been in NICU since he was born Sunday and will now be moved to PICU. There the parents will have a room with him, which will be wonderful as their time with him until now has been limited and they haven’t been able to hold him much. He’ll likely stay in the hospital for a month or so, then hopefully be on his way home. My daughter is anxious to see him again, and that should happen soon.
