Dr. Macicek came to talk to Melanie and Austan. He said he has never had to answer "I don't know" so many times concerning a patient. Right now they are waiting for Renal to come by and give their opinion on dialysis. Witt's kidneys are failing and with dialysis they might start working in the near future but we don't know. They might not. Witt is on very little diuretics in order to help the kidneys but for his heart and lungs this is dangerous. Even on the vent Witt's lungs and heart may not be able to handle all the extra fluid that is building up. If Witt goes on dialysis but his kidneys don't bounce back Dr. Macicek said you wouldn't want to leave him on dialysis for long. That would prolong Witt's suffering. Dr. Macicek said that this situation just is not good. BUT God is Good and He is the Stability of Our Times. He is our Strong Tower and He is Witt's Creator...His grace is sufficient!
At around 5 this morning when I switched with Mel so she could get some sleep in the recliner room my heart was breaking for her. She and Austan have walked this walk and loved their son in such a God glorifying way!! All I could say to God was: "Please, Lord, please!!" Suddenly I had this picture...Christ was standing over Mel in the recliner. He bent down and held her hand in His and whispered in her ear: "Well done my faithful servant." And she slept. Thank You, Lord!
