GREAT NEWS!

After doing very well off of the supplemental oxygen, and after being given the go ahead by the cardiologist, Seth is now coming home with us today! The valve in question is still not all the way closed, but it is closing. We’ll be going in for another echocardiogram in the near future, but for now we are all coming back to the Fun House!

Here’s a video of Seth with his mommy shortly after his arrival. He was very alert.

Off the supplemental oxygen

The pediatrician said they could take Seth off the oxygen. He has been off now for almost two hours with no ill effects. Now we wait for the results from the ecocardiogram. If the valve looks to be closing, we could be released by late afternoon. There are many things that we are uncertain about right now. However, we ARE certain of this:

Psalm 46:1 God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.

Emily and Seth are in sync with nursing. Em’s milk came in last night. He finally got the good stuff and was chugging it down at the 5 a.m. feeding. Praise God for that.

The nurses say he’s the most well behaved one of the bunch and he’s stolen their hearts as well.

Visits to the hospital

Share Button

So many have asked to come visit us and see our sweet boy, however Seth’s NICU unit doesn’t allow visitors and we are spending the large majority of our time with him, rather than in our room. THANK YOU for your messages to us- we feel your prayers and support and look forward to introducing you to him once we’ve settled in at home. Pray for a good report and discharge papers on Sunday- we praise God for you! Stay tuned to this site for the latest updates.

Another update

Em just filled out the consent form for the circumcision. The pediatrician indicated that they would not do the circumcision until the day Seth would go home. So, we are thinking that he might get the nod to go home tomorrow. Pray that we are guessing correctly. If the cardiologist sees that the valve has closed and that his oxygen levels are staying strong, then he will definitely be ready.

Update on Seth’s NICU status

Share Button

The doctor told the NICU nurse to take Seth’s supplemental oxygen down 50%. That’s a good sign that Seth may be ready to go home. Just pray that he would mantain good oxygen levels tonight and tomorrow morning so that we may take him home then.
