AMEN AND THANK YOU GOD!
I am having a hard time writing this...finding the words to accurately tell you what the doctor said. Basically we were given good news, no news, not great news and the doctors are stumped. First for the great news!! The leaky valve is not that bad and is not affecting the heart. There is no surgery necessary.!!! There is no pulmonary hypertension and Witt's lungs look good. The pressures in the heart chambers are high and right now they have no answers for that. The lower heart chamber is stiff which could be because he is still sick or there are other reasons that are not great. The doctor did say that if you had to choose between dealing with this stiffness in the heart or the valve causing issues, the stiffness is the much better choice! They don't have answers for the stiffness in the heart or why the pressures are elevated but that's the walk of faith that is Witt's life. The rest of us just fool ourselves into thinking we have all the answers! Just two months ago Mel and Austan were told that the leaky valve might need surgery and that babies who have to have this surgery don't live to adulthood. Today the truth that was revealed is that the valve isn't leaking that badly and its not affecting his heart! Join me in praising God! Praising the God of all truth! There are many unknowns still but our God does know all...our God is Mighty to Save...our God is Mighty to Save Witt! Even though there are still unknowns to us what happened today was nothing short of a miracle...GLORY!!!
