BUBBLE BABY

Lauren had to have her second surgery because she had complications called adhesions. Like everything else that Lauren likes to do, apparently getting the adhesions to the extent that they were stopping her heart is very rare. Adhesions are just scar tissue that goes haywire and starts to grow too much and join parts of your heart that aren't supposed to be joined. You can imagine that having tissue linking parts of your heart isn't super conducive to it beating normally. While the reason for the adhesions happening is not clear, they can be triggered by her being exposed to any virus or infection. So until we are eight weeks past her surgery, Lauren is our little bubble baby. 



Today we are at 3 weeks, 4 days and counting. I love my house but I'm starting to go a little stir crazy. We are able to go for walks in nature, but I'm so excited that we are almost halfway through baby lockdown.
