SATURDAY UPDATE

Thank you for all the prayers!
(picture taken a week ago
in the ER)


Witt continues to make slow steady progress! His "numbers" that have been concerning continue to improve. The main focus right now is to pull the extra fluid off his little puffed up body and from his lungs. The cardiologists in rounds today decided to add a third diuretic to his daily regimen which is now being given by IV. They are very closely monitoring everything especially his kidney function through this process. The goal is to dry his lungs out to the point that he can come off the ventilator. The vent is on as low of settings as Witt's lungs will allow for now. The hope is to over some period of time wean him off of it. Witt also had an echo yesterday and it showed that his heart has not changed for the worse through all this...thank You, Lord! We have no idea how long this stay will be. What will guide the timing is how Witt responds to the steps being taken. Thank you for your prayers and words of encouragement. They have helped to calm my spirit and keep my focus squarely on God!!!
