5 weeks old

In many ways, I don't know what to say other than to ask for fervent prayer. Isaac has shown signs of decline through the night. His lactate levels are dangerously high & we can't figure out why. A CT scan has been ordered for his GI & bowel to see if they are dying. This morning's X-Ray showed lack of gas exchange through the bowel, but we'll have more specific answers w/the scan. However, this is difficult w/Isaac's dependance on a ventilator or bag to breathe, which also brings in concerns of balancing CO2 levels with oxygen saturation. He is also showing worse signs of modeling, patchy discoloration of the skin resulting from poor circulation & severe edema over several days. He's lost another IV access as the port in his foot stopped functioning this morning.

Our sweet boy is so very sick. Please pray for healing & wisdom, but above all, for God's will to be done & for comfort for Isaac. There's not much left to say at this point as all we can do now is pray & wait.

Mark and I have been watching for your posts and praying nonstop for your family. As a mother, my heart aches for you.
The way in which you offer Isaac to God is inspiring in ways that I cannot express with words. I have come to a point now where I am praying not with words but with feelings -- pure feeling straight from my heart to God to ease this suffering.
Thank you for being so strong in your faith throughout this crucible. It has challenged me to reexamine my commitment to and faith in God.
Our hearts are with you,
-Mark and Shannon Brummer
