I just got to stand in on rounds for Witt...it so Grey's Anatomy...at least to me! I keep thinking which ones are dating and what really goes on in all the storage rooms? On to what matters in this life...Witt's carbon dioxide number is 59!!! The doctor was just hoping it would be in the 60's even high 60's...GLORY!!!! The x-ray is unchanged but (as I learned in our rounds!) that is good and somewhat expected. An eager resident quickly informed me that its quite normal for the xrays to take some time to catch up to what is actually taking place. In other words, clinically (blood tests, listening to lungs etc) he is doing so much better but it may take a few days for the xrays (inside of the lungs) to actually reflect that. Mel and Austan still need to see the surgeon today and make a decision about the more permanent feeding tube. Amazing God. He is worthy of all our praise regardless of any circumstance or test result...nothing changes His worthiness!!
