BACK HOME

Witt is back home from the ER but...




Melanie took Witt's temperature when she got home it was actually a little high(100.2). I think that technically this isn't considered a fever or at least not a fever that is high enough to treat. However, for Witt any change is cause for concern. For now he is home and staying put. Witt had more blood work done in the ER and it showed that he is actually in some ways doing better than the day before. His carbon dioxide level is up some and the indicators for how hard the heart is having to work are better. Because of this the cardiologist felt comfortable in sending Witt home. He did have to come home on 1/2 liter of oxygen but they expect that will not be needed in a day or two especially now that he can get back on his diuretics. Melanie and Austan have both been suffering from a head cold and our prayer is that Witt isn't coming down with this also. Its hard to know what his heart and lungs can handle. Please pray that Witt is on the mend and not getting a cold! Please pray also that both Melanie and Austan can get some peaceful rest. In some ways it seems like Witt has been home for a long time but it has actually only been about 2 1/2 months...not nearly long enough for Melanie and Austan to catch their breath from his previous 4 month stay. Right now they are all resting after yet again another trip to the ER. Thank You, Lord, that once again Witt was able to come home!

Just getting caught up on Witt. I hate hearing of the ER run. As with you, Mel continues to amaze me with her instincts. Prayers up! ~Mindy
