Just a quick update. We just got home from visiting Gaines. Everything is pretty much still the same but his blood gases look better. His CO2 came down to 62. Still not the 45 we want but SO much better than the 90s of yesterday. Please continue to keep him in your prayers. Pray for healthy lungs and a healthy heart. Pray that his PDA closes with the medication and the VSDs do not become a problem.
I cannot tell you how sweet this baby is. He is so precious to us and while we know it won't be tomorrow, we cannot wait to get this child home and be a family again.
I don't think I mentioned this yesterday but I thought it was kind of funny. I was kidding around and asked Gaines' doctor when we could take him home. He thought for a minute and said...Not tonight. At least he was honest.
Love to all,
