PLEASE, PLEASE PRAY!

Please forgive me if this post leaves you with more questions but we don't have all the answers either. Witt is not doing very well. He is requiring more oxygen and is breathing hard. Cpap is standing by if his breathing doesn't get better as his fever comes down. The cardiologists(including Dr. Macicek) met this morning. It was decided that they would not try the cardiac cath procedure because it is invasive. Right now the benefits do not out way the risks. They do however want the MRI done today. They need to talk to Dr. Morales(surgeon who did Witt's first open heart surgery) and see if he thinks the mitral valve could or should be repaired or replaced. It feels like the cardiologists think that Witt wouldn't qualify for a transplant so this would be the only option left. The problem is that all of Witt's heart has issues and the mitral valve replacement wouldn't fix that. Please pray for Witt!!! Please pray for Austan and Mel. I don't even know what specifically to pray....I am moaning! Please, Lord...Your will...Your glory!

Praying for God to speak to the doctors and to Melanie and Austan. Praying for Witt to gain strength, fever to disappear, and more comfortable breathing. May God please you during this time.

Praying for all of you, especially Austan & Melanie as they seek God's guidance in making these difficult decisions for Witt. Our God already knows the outcome, He is in CONTROL. Praying for faith, comfort and strength, and especially for the health of Precious Witt. Love you.
