 CLINTON, OK
On April 8 at my nephews well baby check up the pediatrician noticed a heart murmur. He sent him to children's hospital for a echocardiogram on April 10th. The echocardiogram showed Lincolns arteries were transposed, the only way he was getting oxygen was through a tiny duct that closes 10-14 days after birth. He was 10 days when they found this out. He will be having open heart surgery on April 14th. I will post any changes of his progress. Prayers are appreciated  Thanks!

Lincolns chest was closed up this morning and they are going to start weening him off the ventilator today. I want to thank every one for their prayers, donations, and the things that have been brought to my sisters house for her, Larry, and the kids. Lincoln still has a long road of recovery ahead of him so please continue to pray for him.

Thanks!
Chest is closed up now

April 16, 2015, Lincoln had surgery, called an arterial switch, to correct transposed great arteries (TGA) of the heart. The neonatal-perinatal doctor told Lincoln's parents to be prepared for him to be in the hospital for months. Lincoln's parents hope for a faster recovery so they can return to the 3 siblings that are at home and dad can return to work.

More information about TGA is available at http://www.cdc.gov/ncbddd/heartdefects/tga.html?mobile=nocontent
Lincolns surgery went well!

Lincoln has been taking some breaths on his own which is good. My sister Elizabeth was able to hold him yesterday for the first time since the 10th. His surgery is tentatively set for Thursday April 16th. If Lincoln shows signs of infection or a more serious case comes in, that will change. Thanks for all the prayers and donations. It really means a lot to me and my family.
