Everything went great (as great as things can go when you're having heart surgery) yesterday. Cody and I were finally able to see Brett around 12:30. We knew he would be full of tubes, but I don't think you can ever really be prepared for what you are going to see. However, it was nice to see that Ernie is still a vital part in Brett's care.
The strangest part was that Brett did not repond to our touches or words. Where is the little boy who is constantly smiling and "talking" to you? I'm sure he will be quick to return and right now he needs his rest.
Cody and I were able to get a room at the Ronald McDonald Family Room. Not real comfy, but I'm sure it was better than sleeping in the waiting room. Cody may not agree with that statement as he volunteered to take the mat on the bedroom floor and let me have the bed all to myself. What a guy!
We greatly appreciate all of the prayers and goodies we've received from everyone over the last few days. It's great reading everyone's comments. Cody and I have enough snacks to feed an army and will have a freezer stocked with food when we return home! I think that we have the best friends and family in the world!
