Samuel didn't have an additional brain bleed. They did see the one that they had found a few days ago - but mentioned that it looked like it had resolved some. We will continue to believe, trust, and thank God for healing Samuel's brain - that the clot will completely resolve itself and that there will be no negative side effects.
The ventilator settings did go up today. They had to increase two of his settings and he is still on 33% oxygen. The longer he is on the ventilator, the more damage is done to his lungs.
The abdominal drain is almost out! It looks like it should be out by tomorrow. The staples from Samuel's heart surgery will also come out tomorrow. The doctors are waiting on more intestinal activity (bowel sounds) before they begin feeding Samuel again. He needs to gain weight and grow to get better....so this is critical.
The sodium in his body is still too high. It has come up once again and the doctors are trying to compensate.
For the most part, we've had good news today.....one moment and one day at a time. As always, I can't say thank you enough for your prayers.
