Again I sit here next to Eli and stare out over the beautiful landscape that surrounds our room. Flowers are over flowing, pictures of the kids and family on the sill, and the sun is beating in on us and I feel it. Warm and spectacular shining down on our miracle boy.God is letting me know today that he is everywhere around us with his beauty, love, and strength.
Eli, had a great night in his terms. His blood pressure stayed up and his pulse ox stayed low (we want this). His lactate level is between 4 and 5 which is good for E. HE IS PEEING!!!!! He is not stable enough to have surgery yet we need him to stay at these levels for 48 hours before he can handle open heart surgery. We have our favorite Doctors on with us again, love you Dr Crowley and Jason Christensen. They know our boy and know he causes trouble, but also know how to handle him. Dr Crowley said they are presenting Eli’s case to all cardio staff today to get them ready. Looks like we are switching surgeons to Dr Bove, so we don’t have to wait for Dr Ohye to get back from a conference.
Dr Crowley also told Ron and I to rest up the next two days as much as possible because it will get bad after the surgery. Just a warning to everyone of what is to come.
Here are some sweet pictures from this morning!
