Well Isaac continues to baffle the minds of the doctors. For the second time this week, we did not expect him to live through the night, and yet again he is still here. Earlier this morning we got a blood gas report that gave us some better news. His lactate level went from 19 to 12, which is still extremely high (should be between 0-1.2), but it is an improvement. His pH is within the normal range and he is peeing off a lot of fluid, so he looks much better in appearance.
The doctors do not have any definitive answers as to what caused the issues yesterday or last night or his improvement this morning, but we do know he is still very sick and has a long fight in front of him if he is able to live through it all. At this point, we are waiting to get the next blood gas report back to see if we are still moving in the right direction or not.
Patience and I are just taking everything one step at a time. The emotional roller coaster we're on is exhausting, since we never really know what the next minute will bring. Not to mention the exhausting all-nighters we've been pulling this week.
We continue to praise God in the good reports and bad reports, trusting Him with the outcome.
