Hudson’s surgery was postponed until this morning, but is done now. Dad said he made it through the surgery; one of the surgeons was optimistic that he “will make it”, and the other one said he is a very sick little boy and we’ll have to see “if he makes it”.
It turned out to be that his liver was herniated through his diaphragm and I guess was interfering with his lungs and heart. At one point I heard that his heart was enlarged, but I don’t have a confirmation on that since the surgery.
I should clarify a little bit: they knew that Hudson had issues during the pregnancy. He has club feet, some problems with digestion and/or elimination, and has had breathing problems since birth. He is apparently quite opinionated about all of the poking and prodding he gets on a daily basis, and on more than one occasion it has upset him so much that he has gone into a kind of seizure and stopped breathing.
Thank you for your prayers. Obviously, they are still very much needed.
