That about sums up how Mattie is doing. He is still a very sick boy, but he has been stabilized and had a peaceful night. The episode with internal bleeding caused a minor case of PPH (Persistent Pulmonary Hypertension) to be exacerbated. He is currently receiving medication to treat PPH, he remains sedated and intubated so that he isn’t working hard on his own right now.
Yesterday we saw some high CO2 levels and some low O2 levels, but that has improved a great deal.
And Daddy arrived last night. I am so blessed that some amazing friends are covering our kids for the weekend so that John could come be with Mattie and I for a few days. As you can imagine, walking through Wednesday night’s trauma alone was more difficult than I can even relay.
I am not always able to post updates here on the blog as frequently as I would like, but if you will notice down in my side bar, you can see my twitter updates, which give you short little updates throughout the day. (For those of you not already following me on Facebook or Twitter).
Thank you for your continued prayers for Mattie and for our entire family. We are so blessed and encouraged by all of the emails, comments, and text.
Please continue to pray for the following:
– Healing of Mattie’s heart and lungs
– Healing from the infection that is in his little body
-Healing from Transient Leukemia
-Strength for John and I as we care for our family
-Peace and Grace for our children at home in our absence
-Blessings upon blessings for all those at home helping care for our children and providing meals for our family
