TIME FOR DECISIONS

Looks like Witt was seen by one more doctor...
DR. SUESS!!!!
Witt had an up and down day yesterday. Fortunately it ended on an "up"! Since Witt was not responding well to the Nesiritide and his lungs looked pretty wet he was given a laisx IV drip to pull the fluid off. He did respond very well to that and now is back on dosage lasix. His oxygen is now at 3/4 a liter and he is satting well! Witt continues to have a low grade fever...not really sure what is causing that. His white blood count is normal which indicates no bacterial infection. If Witt continues on this upward path he will be moved back to the cardiac floor(15) and stay there until the cardiac cath procedure which for now is scheduled for Thursday. They are still trying to schedule the MRI of the brain for the same day. The results from these tests are going to bring about some very hard decisions that most parents don't even know exist. I am asking God to pour out His mercy and grace on Melanie and Austan! I am asking God reveal Himself and His will to Melanie and Austan so that through their decisions He is glorified. I am asking Him to reveal His perfect plan for Witt!!
