We are all settled back into the PICU. Cheryl and I are in the recliners and Mel and Austan are with Witt. I haven't gone back to see him. Witt is on CPAP but not liking it much! Austan said that the doctors believe Witt has too much fluid right now and is on fluid overload. His fluid has been cut way back. He has been given a sodium "pill"...maybe a bicarbonate... to help the low sodium. Melanie and Austan are doing amazingly well...concrete examples of answers to your prayers!!

Melanie just texted...did an echo on Witt's heart and valve might be leaking again. Not for sure.

I am praying and this song came into my heart and mind...let it bless your hearts, for all of us that are praying for witt
Blessed Be the Tie that Binds

1. Blessed be the tie that binds
Our hearts in Christian love;
The fellowship of kindred minds
Is like that to that above.

2. Before our Father's throne
We pour our ardent prayers;
Our fears, our hopes, our aims are one
Our comforts and our cares.

3. We share each other's woes,
Our mutual burdens bear;
And often for each other flows
The sympathizing tear.

4. When we asunder part,
It gives us inward pain;
But we shall still be joined in heart,
And hope to meet again.

5. This glorious hope revives
Our courage by the way;
While each in expectation lives,
And longs to see the day.

6. From sorrow, toil and pain,
And sin, we shall be free,
And perfect love and friendship reign
Through all eternity.
