Whew!!

Just in case there are a few of you up waiting to hear... 
You can breath:) 
Alex made it out of surgery. He is awake and being watched again in the CICU. He finally has had something to quench his thirst and is resting. The prayers offered were heard and we thank you. Today as he was fussing and there wasn't anything else left for me to say or do to help him (that is very frustrating, by the way) I asked him if maybe we should say a prayer. With all the faith a very sad 7 year old could muster up he said we should. We thanked Heavenly Father for this day together even if it was hard, then we asked if he could help us not think about being hungry or thirsty. That was it. Gratitude for being together and comfort. Alex layed back after and decided he was pretty tired. He slept until they were wheeling him down the hall. 
They were able to find the bleed, take out the broviac, stitch up the vein and save the vein too. It would have been even harder to lose the vein. He looks pretty beat up, on account that the bruising went into the muscle. And he is sore in his neck where the exploratory incision was made. With a good night under him he will feel better. We all will.
