Good Morning!

And I really mean that.  It has been a good morning!

Jude just woke up when they came in to do his "vest therapy", but he slept through his vest therapy last night so he is nice and rested.  His eyes are getting brighter, and his face is getting pinker.  We even caught a glimpse of the red nose last night when we were bathing him.  He is looking WONDERFUL and more like himself every minute.

They came in and took his morning labs earlier.  They are just doing his blood gas now.  The results were so reassuring.  His CO2 level had come down a little bit more to 44!  He is getting closer and closer to average levels!!!  Praise the Lord!!!

The nurse also said that Jude's lungs and airway sound much better and clearer this morning.  He has starting coughing (that is actually a very good thing), and it has been productive.  So all seems to be going in the right direction.

Well the "Great Louisiana Ice Storm" is over.  I heard I didn't miss much ;-) And the sun is out and shining, but I hear its still very cold out there.  My parents are coming in today to see us!  It's been killing them that they had to wait this long, but with them having to travel in possible icy conditions, we decided to wait until it was easier for everyone.  

My mom is also bringing me gifts of homemade chicken noodle soup and hot lemonade with honey.  She said she has to take care of her baby while I take care of mine.  I haven't had time to deal with it, but I have been sick too.  The doctor said it was more than likely Jude's RSV, but it just doesn't have the same severe affect on adults as it does babies and toddlers.  And they said that it should have no effect on Sweet Pea at all; just to make sure I didn't spike a fever.  But thankfully it's only been a low temp.  

That seems to be all for now.  I love that I only have good news to share at this point!  The power of prayer and God's healing touch is completely amazing and uncomprehending!

Lots of Hugs,

  1. Oh goodness - I take a few days off from blog reading and look what I miss! We had our first ER experience this week - but nowhere near what you're experiencing. My heart and thoughts are with you!


Thank you for taking the time to share a kind word with me!
