Jesse is home. He had a long day yesterday. Majel is scheduled to return to school Tuesday. Please continue to pray for both of them
Aaron’s echo this morning showed a little too much pressure in the right side of his heart. They had cut his nitric oxide in anticipation of extubating him today, but that was evidently too hard on his heart and lungs. Also, b/c his urine output has been low, he was getting rather swollen. They have now given him another diuretic to help him get rid of the extra fluid and have told us they are going to take things really slow to give him plenty of time to adjust. We are impatient (as is Aaron) b/c we really want to hold him again and the removal of the ventilator, chest tube, catheter, etc., are the steps we want to take in that direction. We know Aaron doesn’t like the tube down his nose/throat (he tries to cry but can’t make sound because of the tube), so that makes us anxious to get rid of it even more. We don’t like to see him hurt and hate that we can’t comfort him when he cries. We must pray for patience for ourselves and little Aaron as we wait for his body to be ready for these steps.
Happy Good Friday to everyone. Don’t forget to celebrate the reason for this Easter weekend!
Someone that David and I have known all our lives and most of you have know for many years has developed a serious health issue. Please pray for this individual.
Becki and the children made it safely home yesterday afternoon. Thanks for praying for them as they traveled. Pray for all those who have miles to travel and stops to make in the coming days.
