Witt is resting better today. Yesterday was a little tough. He threw up several times and his oxygen saturation was dropping. Witt had taken his diuretic and heart medication right before he threw up. Melanie made a call and Dr. Macicek said to give the medicines(one partial) again. Witt seems to be doing better today.
Last Wednesday a member of the transplant team came by. He concurred with Mel and Austan's plans for Witt right now...not to move forward just yet on seeing if Witt qualifies for a transplant. Witt will be followed now by the heart failure team. The great news and blessing is that Dr. Macicek will still be Witt's cardiologist. Melanie asked for this to take place. The cardiologist team will keep an eye on Witt and will still be talking about him in their meetings. They will let Melanie and Austan know if and when it's time to move forward with the transplant process. For now Witt is home! Our immediate prayer request is that Witt remain healthy...not just his heart but that Witt doesn't catch a respiratory infection. We are closing in on flu and cold season!!!! Monday Witt has a check-up with Dr. Macicek. No echo will be done but I assume there will be a chest x-ray. Witt, Melanie and Austan are still adjusting to everyone being home. That's a great thing to have to adjust to!!

I sure hope Mel and Austan are resting as well. This has been a rough 75 days for them and I know they are so glad to be home.
I'll continue to keep all of you in my prayers.
