We are back from the hospital. It was a long day to say the least! Mason is home and is doing the same as before. He is stable and the only thing left to do is surgery.

They did a chest x ray again and showed a little bit of change since last time ( flooding of the lungs) but not horrible. They also tried 8 TIMES to get blood....momma was not happy at all! Mason cried like he has never cried before. Broke my heart. We had to adjust 1 of mason's meds though. We have to back down off of the Digoxin a bit because he is close to a toxic level since we keep having to increase it.

We meet with Dr. Goertz tomorrow morning and we should be getting his surgery date on Tuesday! They said there isnt anything left to do but surgery.

Mason is a fighter & he keeps proving that over & over again.

Thank you to all our family & friends for the wonderful messages & phone calls of support we received yesterday. It was wonderful to feel the love & support.


  1. Still praying for your little fighter. You and your husband are also in my prayers. Keep strong for your little ones.

  2. Thanks for the update! We are continuing to pray for sweet Mason Dean

  3. Oh, sweet boy. While it's so daunting and scary to think about now, he'll be so different (in a good way!) after surgery! It's incredible what a bum ticker does to our little ones (sooooo sleepy...), until the correction is done. Hang in there, all of you!

  4. Saying lots of prayers for Mason!

  5. Thank goodness things are moving forward. Sending you all strength through this very difficult time.

  6. Mason has been in my prayers since I found your blog. He is an incredible little boy.


We love to hear from you!
