WHAT A WAY TO BEGIN 5 MONTHS!

Wow....Witt decided to start his 5th month off with a bang but so did God! Right now its hard to know with Witt what might be a more everyday baby thing and what is particular to Witt. By the time we got him to ER his heart rate was in the 190's and even hit 200! Needless to say a few red lights were run by Austan to get him there. I have never seen the Texas Children's ER so packed. People were literally 2 deep in chairs and overflowing to the floor. It is amazing how you move right to the front of line when you have oxygen, a feeding tube, a heart alarm going off and a grandmother clearing the way!! The preliminary tests point to just a virus. The chest xray and EKG show the heart and lungs to be doing great. We were told it's not unusual for the heart rate to increase significantly with a fever. All things point to a very normal virus. This even could help build his immune system. The doctor said that bringing Witt in was absolutely the right thing to do because of his history and now we have some typical baby history...glory!! I always feel God so near in these situations...I continually heard Him say He was in control. We are all back home now getting some much needed sleep except of course, Witt! I hear him in there just "talking"!

Whew! I hope the virus subsides quickly. Those scares are scary! Of course, God is in control. Amen. You know I want Witt to be well enough to come out to Zapp, perhaps Sunday? *wink* ~Mindy
