They are running a battery of tests on Witt right now to determine why all of his "numbers" are "off." Everything is "out of whack" and just not making medical sense. He is on the ventilator and has a central line inserted.
It has been a whirlwind since this afternoon when he was moved to the cardiology floor and quickly went downhill...it doesn't seem that the move was the cause but the culmination of too much fluid build-up. As we have said before, it requires a very delicate balance of fluids with Witt...he had been dehydrated we know so they had him on double the normal amount of fluids and no diuretics at all. By the time he was brought back down to PICU his blood sugar and heart rate were way low...in fact, his blood sugar was dangerously low...it was 23, dropped to 8 and then dropped to 4. It is now up to 129, thank God. But, everything is still way off...even his potassium is low now.
Again, we are so proud of Mel and Austan and the strength they are showing through this. They are by Witt's bedside now and are sending updates as they can. We will keep you posted...until then, please just pray that God reveals Himself and the answers to this amazing team of medical professionals that are working with our sweet Witt.
