Day of Prayer & Fasting
Good morning from Chapel Hill! Our sweet boy has made it through another night & has been wide awake this morning, taking everything in through his beautiful blue eyes. Jordan & I both were able to hold him last night for several hours. What a joy to hold your child & in spite of his severe sickness, see him resting peacefully in your arms. For a moment, he can simply be a child without a care in the world. How we love this sweet boy!
Isaac held steady last night, lactate down to 5. But for unknown reasons, this began to climb again, rising to 13.1 in only 6 hours. However, his pH & CO2 levels have not experienced serious flux. Once again, a curve ball has come our way. The medical team will keep a close watch on his lactate today. They've ordered a repeat abdominal sonogram today in hopes of gaining a better understanding of what's going on with his gut. Also, Isaac's blood sugars continue to be elevated.
We would like to ask all who are able, to join us in praying and fasting on Isaac's behalf today. We so appreciate all the prayers being lifted up for him.
