Here's the latest on our sweet Isaac:
God has been working today in ways that the doctors can't explain. His CO2 levels have come back down to the relatively safe range (from the 120's+ to the 40's) & his pH is now in the normal range as well. His kidney levels have also begun to move in the right direction. Through the night, Isaac's heart rate fluxed between 90 & 200. He has been holding relatively steady for the past several hours in the safe range.
Isaac remains our medical enigma. Everyone continues to scratch their heads with how he has responded, both negative & positive aspects. Prayer is powerful!! Even the doctors have said, "miracles do happen" (this coming from those who didn't expect him to make it through the night). Praise God! So he is more stable than last night, but far from being out of the water yet. Things still causing the doctors to be concerned are his lactate & potassium levels have begun to escalate for unexplainable reasons and he is still retaining a lot of fluid in his tissues. They also remain uncertain as to the reasons causing last night's difficulties. Isaac continues to keep us all on our toes.
Thank you all for your passionate prayers for our family & overwhelming support. We are still taking this moment by moment, thanking God for each bit of progress & laying Isaac at His feet with each set back.
