Hello all. Sorry for the delay in writing, but it has been a restful, lazy Saturday here on the mountain.
Houston has returned from MFuge in Charleston, SC with the Youth Group. He had a great time, but he is exhausted. After picking him up from the church, we all went to see the Zman at the hospital. Zander enjoyed seeing his big brothers and he continues to rest well.
The nurses told us that he has had a good day. Earlier in the day he was smiling and looking around, so this is our positive note for the day. Jackson and Houston enjoyed visiting with Zander and the Zman continues to rest well. He is still on pain meds and sedatives, but the nurse indicated that these will likely be decreased in the coming days. Zander is still taking 15 ml of milk every 3 hours and he has not had any rejections.
Tomorrow, he will have more xrays done to see what is going on. We are praying that his espohagus is showing signs of stretching. We are also praying that the drainage from his chest tube remains zero as there has not been any fluid from the chest tube in about 24 hours.
I hope that each of you have a restful Sunday. I will write again tomorrow afternoon after seeing Zander. Christie and I thank each of you for your continued prayers and comments. We definitely feel the strength of the church and others through this journey. May God bless each of you!
May your dreams be endless Zander...with all our love.
