Isaac is definitely a fighter! He's doing slightly better than he was Wednesday night, but is still very sick & in critical condition. The fact that we don't know what caused this week's issues causes concern for the days that lay ahead. Even though his CO2 is down & his pH is looking good, his lactate is too high & his organs are working very hard right now. Every now & then, his heart rate will sporatically escalate for unknown reasons, & also has been having circulation problems in his arms & legs. The edema is beginning to improve though he still has a long way to go.
We are deeply grateful for the flood of prayers & encouragement we've received for our sweet boy. This journey has truly been a medical roller coaster for Isaac, & an emotional one for us. Even though it is extremely difficult, we continue to place our trust in God, knowing He's in control & has a purpose & plan for all of this.
