Isaiah went into surgery around 12 noon, and came out around 2:45p. However, we did not get back to his room until 9pm. He was having a lot of uncontrolled severe pain that was causing him to have very high heart rates and low oxygen levels. He's been holding his breath (splinting), instead of taking deep breaths because his belly hurts. He's turned blue a couple of times and has needed oxygen. We are hoping that with being back in his room, he will be more comfortable and calm down. If Isaiah continues to need large amounts of pain medication or blow-by oxygen, he may need to be transferred back to PICU for closer observation/monitoring. Please pray that his anxiety levels and pain levels come under better control. We would like to have a nice recovery in his room.
Thank you for your continued prayers and support. Isaiah still has a long road ahead of him and recovery will be slow--this is expected. Continue to pray for patience and endurance for us. Pray for Isaiah's bowels that they will heal quickly. Pray for Josiah as this is all very overwhelming for him. Thankfully, Chris's mom Viviane, is down with us this week and in 2 weeks, my mom will be back up here from TN to help us out. We have been so thankful for all the help from everyone.
