But from everlasting to everlasting the LORD's love is with those who fear him and his righteousness with their children's children . . . Psalm 103:17

Saturday later afternoon post


After initial optimism that Seth's increased work of breathing and need for Vapotherm were due to shifting mucus, the attending physician is now concerned that he is doing worse and looking/sounding worse on exam. Therefore, she wants to look for other causes of his worsening condition. They repeated his viral panel to check and see if he has Respiratory Syncitial Virus on top of the basic "cold" virus. (RSV acts like this, worsening a few days after initial infection, hence her vigilance.) The test came back negative, so that's a huge relief!

They are also giving him another dose of Lasix to try and clear out any extra water that's causing the crackles in his lower lungs.

He's not the happiest little camper, but he sure is a cutie! Please pray for good rest for him (hard to get when he's receiving treatments and being suctioned every 3 hours). 

We THANK GOD for all the help we're receiving with all the babies and Isaac! The Lord is so gracious and compassionate. Clearly He is honoring your prayers, including for us parents and Isaac.

With Aunt Katie, studying his new ball from Uncle Calvin and her

Learning that the ball lights up!!

With the respiratory therapist. The flash kept making him look like a deer in the headlights. :)

He was entranced by Uncle Calvin, couldn't take his eyes off of him. Is it the beard? 


Love and gratitude,
Carrie
