Today was a good, quiet day....just what we needed!
Thomas was resting and comfortable. He is continuing to make steady progress, and we are thankful!
It looks like they may close his chest in the morning, so I wanted to make sure and ask for prayers for that tonight! We have been warned that sometimes babies have a "slump" after chest closure, so hopefully we can ward that off :)
Here are our prayer requests.....as always, we can't thank you enough for praying for Thomas!!
-pray that chest closure will go smoothly, and that he will tolerate it well
-pray that his wound will stay free from infection
-please continue to pray for his kidney function and urine output so that swelling will continue to improve
-please continue to pray for his colon- that xrays will remain clear
-pray that he will not develop a chylothorax (thanks to our awesome nurse Amanda for giving me possible upcoming complications to start praying about!)
-pray for Jada- Thomas's neighbor in the ICU....she is a beautiful baby girl who had surgery on Monday as well (different diagnosis). She has the sweetest parents! Pray for healing for her, and that she will continue to make progress!
He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us. (2 Cor 1:4 NLT)
Thank you to all of our "comforters" who have been praying for us and encouraging us!!!
