Sweet Witt is still not feeling well. His osat level is lower than normal...Mel has had to turn his oxygen up from 1 1/2 to 2 liters and even so his osat is only 96. (He normally stays up at 99-100.) Mel and Austan still AMAZE me! Right now, they are having to make decisions about whether or not to withhold diuretics...Witt had diarrhea over the weekend so there was concern about him getting dehydrated...but, now they're worried that his lungs might be a little wet. Managing Witt's fluid levels is such a delicate balancing act...what incredible parents Witt has been blessed with! They are deciding now whether to take Witt into the pediatrician's office this afternoon. He has an appointment for tomorrow but they might go ahead and take him in today. Mel has also called Dr. Macicek for his opinion. Praise God for the marvelous health professionals that Witt has been blessed with!
Speaking of being blessed with...today is Karen's birthday!!! She has been such a precious blessing to so many. She is a Godly wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, sister, aunt, cousin, friend...she wears many hats with grace, love and compassion. She blesses us all daily!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, KAREN!
WE LOVE YOU DEARLY!!!
(**update...Dr. Macicek has already called back and he feels like it's fine to wait until tomorrow to take Witt into the pediatrician. Witt is resting now, his oxygen is staying up around 99 and his breathing seems to be less labored...Praise God!)
