In the PICU

10:00 - Micah is finally in the PICU (Pediatric Intensive Care Unit). The doctors and nurses wheeled him past the waiting area for us to see him. We haven't been allowed in the PICU yet, but we'll go in soon and just check out his room and head off to get some sleep.

It's probably going to be a long recovery process for our little champ. They had to leave his chest open because of the amount of time he spent on the bypass machine and he's pretty swollen. We're hoping they'll be able to close his chest in 24-48 hours. He's quite sedated and will be for a while. He's on meds to help his breathing and minimize his blood loss.

I don't know how to ask for prayers except for the obvious.
