The cardiology team just rounded on Witt. They think he might be a tiny bit dry. Last night another dose of diuretic was held along with the enalapril because his blood pressure was low. Being a little too dry can cause this. Today they will continue to tweak his medicines so the decision was made to keep Witt in the PICU another day/night. The cardiologist didn't want to send him to the floor with uncertainty in his meds. Witt is off oxygen now! His saturation is hanging in the mid to low 90's but so far so good!!! These pictures were taken yesterday when he still had the nasal cannula for oxygen.
This morning I opened my Bible to Psalm 27 :13:
"I would have despaired unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait for the Lord; be strong and let your heart take courage; yes, wait for the Lord."
Beside this verse I had written: Mel 6/27/08(after the ultrasound and 4 months before Witt was born). I remember reading and praying this. Asking God to fill me with strength all the while hanging tightly to the truth that I would see the goodness of the Lord. Some people, even fellow believers may find this hard to believe but when I look at Witt all I see is the goodness of the Lord! Certainly, I have experienced excruciating pain and there has been suffering. Undeniably, Witt has suffered...Melanie has suffered...Austan has suffered but at least equally undeniable is the presence of the goodness of the Lord even if the "land of the living" is the hospital!!!
