Moving Forward Again
Chandler is getting better. His infection turned out to be pneumonia. It takes about 3 days for the culture to grow back enough to know exactly what is going on, but they put him on a broad spectrum antibiotic to kill what ever he had. He started to show improvement right away especially after a blood transfusion which pinked him right up, and in the past week he pooped (which is great for his digestive system and jaundice), He was taken off the biliruben lights. He was taken off the high frequency ventilator and put on the conventional ventilator. Which is good because he is able to move around more and does not have to be sedated. They also started feeding him again and we will see how that goes. Hopefully I will get to hold him again soon. Even though he has been improving rapidly, it has been a difficult week because we went so far back. I know that through prayer we have been able to make through all of this. Thank you all for keeping us in your prayers.
