Sat morning e-mail notice
Things are quiet and slow at CHOP this morning, but still moving forward for our little guy. Aaron’s surgeon came by and ordered his chest tube be removed. Since he is peeing better (yea!), they removed his catheter as well. 2 big steps… He is still too swollen for them to remove his breathing tube, but if he continues to shed fluid and breath above the ventilator, they might do that tomorrow. We are eager for this step, but want to make sure God keeps it all in His timing. We don’t want Aaron to have to work too hard all at one time.
We will keep the good news coming. Love to everyone.
