I went ahead and updated before our night visit thinking nothing would change...but.....I do have a little more to update. Of course that means a little more to add to the prayer list.
While we were in there tonight, his Dr. was there so we got to talk to him. He said they took a second look at the ECG of his heart and that they've decided the opening was larger than they originally thought. He has had increased heart rate and a few other minor signs, so they are going to go ahead and treat this with medication starting tomorrow morning. They will stop his feedings and give him his medication over 36 hours. Dr. Chris said that about 80% are fixed with this first round and that 90% are fixed with 2 rounds. SO..hopefully this will work the first time. If the medication doesn't work then he'll have to have a surgery and of course we're wanting to avoid that. If this PDA (thats this little heart thing) has been affecting breathing, oxigination, or his heart rate then they said we'll see a big turn around once it's fixed. Please pray for his little heart.
Dr. Chris said they'll do another head scan to check the swelling Thursday or Friday. There has been growth over the last 2 days. I fully believe that all these prayers will turn that around.
Still on antibiotics for 2 more days to make sure there is no infection. They can be tough on his liver and kindeys so we're kind of ready for him to be off of those.
We thank you so much for your prayers. We are honored to have so many people praying. We don't ask you for these prayers lightly or with greed, we are so thankful for all of you who pray. I have so much comfort and I believe so strongly that this WILL make a difference--that all of these prayers are working and will work!
