Another Ian Update

I posted yesterday about a friend's little boy Ian getting a heart transplant. They just posted an update today on how it went. The procedure was long and they had some rough spots with bleeding and him going into cardiac arrest a few times, and they had to reinsert the ECMO to give his lungs a rest, but now he is stable. He is on immunosupressents to keep his body from rejecting the new heart but it is working good and hopefully in a few days he will be off ECMO and recovering well. Please continue to keep them in your thoughts/prayers for a good recovery. This poor little guy is less than a year old and already undergone so many treatments and surgeries.
