Saturday Morning

It's Saturday morning, 3rd day post OP.

Iain has pretty much slept in between feedings since 7PM last night!  Thank you for your prayers, they are working!!

The Cardio Resident was just in to see Iain.  He is looking good, his respirations are good, he's finally sleeping and pain seems to be under control.

BUT, he seems to be having a problem with his sugar levels.  The past 16 hrs or so his sugar has been low.  They like it to be around 100 the last three readings were 77, 73 and now 66.  

They were hoping to ween him off his sugar water, but it's staying till they can figure out what's going on.  They will probably start condensing his formula to see if that helps.  Basically, his body isn't getting enough calories.

Not sure what this means, but I'm guessing it will postpone the idea of us getting out of here today.  I'm guessing we are here till tomorrow, unless his sugars come up pretty quickly today.

The Dr. said he'll be back in around 10 to check him out. 

Thank you for your continued prayers.  Tim and I are doing well.  Definitely feeling tired as each night hear it seems to get harder and harder to sleep.  The headaches are setting in and the caffeine is working less and less!  :)

We have been so amazed by our care here at PSU Hershey Med.  From the volunteers at Ronald McDonald Family Room, to the Drs. and Nurses.  Seriously, we haven't had ONE uncomfortable or bad scenario with Iain's care.  They have all been amazing.

Iain is a hit in the PICU & PIMU.  The nurses are swooning over him and love his little face and all his smiles.  Other nurses are even stopping by to see him, just based on what his nurses tell them!  

We are so thankful for the gift of this hospital.  We know for certain that God led us in the right decision to be here.  We are amazed daily by stories of Iain's surgeon.  He seems to be a well liked man who does amazing things for little hearts. 

Pray for him as he heads to Ecuador on Monday to fix little hearts!!!  Pray for many successful surgeries and that the team is able to fix MANY hearts and save many lives!

Iain & Dr. Myers!  So Thankful that God has given this man a skill and gift to repair such little hearts!!!!
