After the Shift Change

I haven't been in to see Edmund since about 7 when they do the shift change. Things were good when I left. He was down to practically nothing on the dobutamine for his blood pressure. He just couldn't get by without that last drip of it. He is going way down on the nitrateoxide - he will be put down to 5ppm this evening. He is stable and doing well... still a long road ahead! Please pray for his heart scan tomorrow...that whatever they thought might be damaged is healed!!

(the uploaded pictures were from the night Edmund got to St. Vincent's... he looks a little better now)

Oh what a wonderful day this has been for Edmund!! Each tiny progression is suck a milestone for him. What a strong little guy you have!

I wish there was something more I could do for you guys from so far away... (if there is, PLEASE let me know.) For now, my thoughts are with you as tomorrow is another big day.

As always, thank you for the updates. :) Hugs to all of you!

Dennis...you might not remember me.I came with your mom to visit you at Purdue (I was from Ohio but now live in Michigan). I just opened the email from Cindy today about Edmund. I want you and Heidi to know I am praying for you and for strength for both of you. Please try to get sleep to keep your stamina up and pray...pray...pray!

Still praying vigorously for you all! These updates are filled with hope! After praying for you yesterday, I opened my Bible to Ps. 121: "I lift up my eyes to the hills. Where does my help come from. My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of Heaven and Earth..."
The whole Psalm was a comfort to me and maybe it will be to you both as well. Love and Many Prayers!!!
