11: 15 a.m.
Still no artery, he remained stable. At 12:30 the surgeon came out again to let us know they had called in a general surgeon to make an incision in his arm and they could see the artery. They felt like this was going to work. 2:00 came and the anethesiologist came to see us. The arm line had not worked. They could not get a return. They made an incision through the groin and sewed up his little wrist. He was losing blood and need more FFP (Fresh Frozen Plasma) he had already gone through the supply donated by our family. They would be using more from the blood bank. 4:30 Cullan is doing well, only a few hours left......5:15 Surprise! They finished sooner than they thought. Once they started it only took a little over 3 hours! Things went well. He would need to continue receiving transfusions for the next day. He was on a ventilator to help him breathe as well as to help him rest so they could watch the fluid on his lungs-all complications due to surgery. 6:05 p.m. Cullan was moving up to ICU and we could see him in an hour or so...! Finally, we would get to see our baby!
