I hope everyone had a great Easter day.
Our day wasn't that great. Will is now back on the vent (the machine that breathes through a tube down his throat) It all started in the night when he was having to work too hard to breathe so they put him on the bi-pap machine (the machine that forces air down to help you breathe). He still couldn't get his sats (saturation of oxygen) up over 85% (acceptable is over 90%). He was working too hard and then he started going down hill fast. They decided to put the vent in rather quickly and I was amazed how well Will took the news. He must have been tired. Once the vent was in, he still wasn't able to get his sats up. The drs. worked most of the afternoon on him but finally they got them (the sats) up. They had to put all the tubes that they had before back in him. they put two new IV lines in and one just to take blood out of (arterial line). His blood pressure started to drop (68/29) and so they needed new medication to get that back up to acceptable numbers. That took a few hours to get that up. So all in all, it was a long, long day.
Will is holding his own now and they are keeping him sedated . They want to run a bunch of tests, including a ct scan to see what happened but they can't do it now because he is still unstable. Hopefully they will be able to do it later this morning. This is just another bump in the road. Will reminded me right before they had to put in the vent that it's all going to be worth it.
As I sat here tonight saying my prayers for His blessings on Will, I can't forget that there is a love more powerful than a parent's love and that is God's love for Will. He must have great things in the making for Will. The trials and little "bumps" that we are going through are all in God's great plan. The hard part is being able to give it ALL over to Him. I know how hard it is to read that Will has had a set back. I said a prayer for all of you to find some peace knowing God has his hand upon Will. I hope everyone will say a prayer for Will's speedy healing and finding out what caused this. Also if you could say a prayer for Angel, she is having such a tough time being so far away while all this is happening to him. My heart hurts for her too. I will post more as we know what's happening.
God bless you all
