Sunday Morning :)

Well things are pretty uneventful here. Little Charlie was peaceful most of the night. He still gets aggitated every two hours when the nurses do their assessments and it is taking him a little longer to calm down after those. His BP and heartrate were an issue earlier in the night due to aggitation. He is taking faster breaths than the vent and due to that his CO2 is decreasing to 25-30. The Drs would like to keep it at 35-45. So they disconnected the ventilator to see if the respirations would slow down if he did all of it by himself. The CO2 was still low so they gave him a little morphine to calm it down. The seizure medicine seems to be keeping them under control and he hasn't had any more norepi for his heartrate. Yea!

Keep on keeping the faith. The Lord knows you by name and also the struggles you are going through. He hears our prayers and knows of all of our desires that little Charlie gets better. But we must remeber that he is in charge and things will happen in his time.
I believe that there is a reason for this and that one day we will know. Trust in the Lord. We love you and you are in our prayers constantly.

Love ya,

your favorite aunt
