Yes he had a good night. What does that mean though? While still on all his life saving machines, 15 different IV lines, and EEG machine Elijah had a night that was considered in the positive direction. He was weened off 3 medicines to stabilize his blood pressure and he is doing most of this work on his own now. His Lactate levels rose again to 11.8 but after 6 hours have come back down to a 7!!!!!! This is just great for him. They have gotten some of the fluid off his lungs and the x ray looked much better today. Baby E even got a bath and had socks put on.He even surprised everyone and opened an eye, but we did quickly sedate him after this so he wouldn’t have to feel anxiety about what was happening to him. I know his spirit is strong and this is his way of showing us.
I have told Eli over and over how proud I am of him and what a great job he is doing. I have also talked with him about holding him soon and letting him feel my heart again. I feel like this is motivating our little man. I kiss his feet and his little chest and just this touch of him has allowed my milk to come in and my mommy instincts are in full gear. He looks just like his daddy and has the Farhat lips that I can’t wait to kiss. Even with 3 pounds of fluid on his body he is so amazingly beautiful.
My heart is filled with pride that my baby boy is so strong and I know he feels gods love as well as mine, and Ron’s.
The big brother and sisters are doing well a few funny quotes from there mouth to gods ear.
