Charlie had a good day yesterday. His left lung is slowly recovering. Today’s xray shows some improvement over yesterday. We were able to wean more on pain meds yesterday. He is generallly happy when awake and sleeps a lot. I am thankful for his peaceful sleep so that he can heal. His incision sight continues to leak. The hope was that the fistula would heal itself and the leak would stop, but that hasn’t happened yet. The plan is to do an upper GI study again at the end of next week or beginning of the following week to get a road map of what is going on in there and what needs to happen to fix it.
1)God would continue to strengthen Charlie and encourage his heart.
2)Charlie’s left lung would continue to open up.
3)Infections would stay away and his immune system would strengthen.
3)Intestinal Fistula would heal and bowels would begin functioning.
4)Brain would be developing well.
Praise: The lung is improving, fluid once seen under the liver is gone, weaning pain med was successful, some new friend’s here are getting better and going home, mom has a little more faith in her Risen King than she did yesterday, God is ALL-sufficient!
My family and I are so grateful for so many of you that continue to serve us! The prayers, notes, meals, visits, hugs, walks… we are so blessed to know you and humbled by your care.
