We got the next blood gas report back and it revealed a couple things. His lactate went down from 12 to 6. The fact that it has come down can mean one of two things. It is either a positive result of taking him off the medication Dopamine, or it is a negative result of his bowels dying, thus not being able to produce as much lactate. We just got another test back that showed there was some blood in his stool, which causes us to lean toward the negative finding in the lactate.
His CO2 is up a little bit in his blood, causing it to be more acidic. This was the problem we were facing Wednesday, but not quite as severe as before. His pH was normal again.
It's never too late for God to do a miracle! We know that God has the power to do miraculous healings, and we also know He has a plan for Isaac. So if God chooses to heal Isaac physically, this will be an amazing story for the world to see, of His power and love. If God chooses to heal Isaac by taking him to heaven, this will be also be an amazing story for the world to see, of how He used a little baby to change the hearts of people around the world towards our Savior Jesus Christ!
