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.
