Post-Op Update #2.

The bronchoscopy went well. So far everything looks really good, thank God.

The plan over night is to keep Oakes sedated and resting. His room will remain quiet and peaceful. Classical music is playing and the shades are closed.

Greg and I will head home in a bit to crash. Needless to say, we are drained.

Thank you all for your continued love and support and devotion to our might little Oakes.

Before rounds started Oakes' friend and surgeon, Dr. Huddleston came by to visit. What a long day these two have had!


  1. Becky, I don't know if you remember me, but my sister was in your class in high school...Jennie Pourchot. She has been keeping me up-to-date about your family, and then I saw Lisa's post last night on Facebook. I am praying for the mighty Oakes constantly as well as your entire family. I can tell what an incredible fighter he is and obviously has a strong spirit as do you and your family.

    I wish there was some way to make this easier on you all, but please know that there are many, many people saying daily prayers for Oakes and sending you as much love as possible!

    xoxo, Emily (Pourchot) Shaffer

  2. Mighty Oakes is in my heart. I heard about him through Allison Delano. We've been through an eerily similar situation with our son, Jacob, so I can truly empathize. And I have a friend whose daughter had a lung transplant at St Louis a few years ago. And I have a four month old boy myself right now (who had heart surgery at 5 days old.)

    I got down on my hands and knees last night for your little guy.
