By the grace of God, our little guy is slowly and steadily recovering in the ICU. He came through surgery without major complications but he is still intubated and very swollen. Paul is sensitive to fluid balance and has ALWAYS been very slow to recover from respiratory stand point. They did give him an hour of a trial to breathe on his own this morning and it was good for a while, but then he got tired without the ventilator support. He is still heavily sedated and will be while he is intubated. The plan for now is to continue to give him diuretics, keep him calm, and hopefully extubate soon. We thank you so much for your support and energy throughout the day. Please continue to pray that Paul improves and is able to be off the ventilator soon. We will keep you posted.
