CARDIAC FELLOWS!

First let me say it is not Witt's heart that has him in the hospital. The echo confirmed that there has been no change there!
We have appreciated the doctors and staff here at Texas Children's and for us the cardiac fellows are a real stand out!!! Over and over this group of doctors show incredible compassion along with the necessary wisdom. The cardiac fellow today seems really on top of things for Witt. He believes Witt does have aspiration pneumonia from aspirating on his vomit. Witt is now on an antibiotic for it and being moved to a step down room on 15 which is actually the step up in care. It is obvious that Witt does not feel good! Gastro has already stopped by and talked to Melanie and Austan about a range of steps from something to speed up digestion to fundoplication surgery to stop Witt from throwing up again. The fellow also called pulmonary to consult. That will take place tomorrow. We feel like something is really being done now! Even though there still are no real answers yet as to why Witt was throwing up in the first place, his medical condition right now is being taken care of. Thank You, Lord, for the team of cardiac fellows!
