Answers and questions for mothers who have/had a baby in the hospital

Hey, my son Kurt was in the hospital for the first 7 months. He was born with a rare heart defect, Hypoplastic left heart syndrome. Plus (what kept us in the hospital) he has Chronic lung disease so he was on a ventilator and had a tracheotomy that entire time until we got to go home.
My son was born with a heart defect and has had 2 surgeries to repair. We have spent about a total of 45 days, I guess. About 1 month when he was born which was really painful to not even get to take our newborn home or even hold him until he was 5 days old. The second surgery at 9 months was a little easier because we knew what to expect. He is now almost 2 and will have to have another surgery next summer (approx) and will probably be there for a week and a half to two weeks. I am really worried about that one since he will understand a little but not enough. How old is your son? How long has your son been hospitalized?
