A little more information, and a few pictures...
Amy says: "The EMT in me wants to watch, but the Mommy in me doesn't! What to do?!?!?" I confined her to the waiting room.
"What? Me?!? I didn't touch the channel! I promise!" The epic saga of 'waiting room channel control' continues...
How many people in scrubs and hairnets does it take to perform heart surgery? Pretty much everybody in the picture. I wondered if it was a good idea to commence flash photography mid-procedure, but it all turned out okay.
I'm adding things a little at a time. If you'll notice on the right side of the screen, there's a section titled 'Links'. I'll continue to add links to relevant websites with more information(some may be not-so-relevant, but oh well). For those of you that aren't so 'web-savvy'--just click on the link and it will take you to the website. You can also click on the pictures on this site to see a larger version of them. There's a link to the University of Utah Newborn Intensive Care Unit website. I haven't spend a lot of time there yet, as I just found it, but the 'Frequently Asked Questions' are pretty interesting, and it looked like there's a whole lot more information there than you could read in a day(oh joy!).
There's also a link(PDA Information) to a short little article explaining the situation with thier hearts, which they just had surgery for last night. It's short, to the point, and has pretty pictures. By the way--the babies are still pretty doped up on pain medication, and we'll be going to see them in a little bit.
As I find more links with concise, relevant information(like Text Twist), I'll add them to the list. I'll let you know whenever I add one, and if anyone has any suggestions, please let me know. Any suggestions at all regarding the site are always welcome!
