Update on Joshua

For those of you that have asked about my cousin's baby boy, as of Wednesday afternoon he was doing well. Joshua had heart surgery on Tuesday afternoon up at OHSU, just about 1 week after his birth. Amber said today that Joshua is doing good. He did just have open heart surgery, so he does still have some recovery time ahead of him and your thoughts are prayers appreciated.

The condition that required Joshua to need surgery is called "Transposition of the Great Arteries". Here is a link to the American Heart Association website and their explanation of it.

Thank you again for your well wishes.
