We went down today to check out the little man and get a look at what I am calling the "festering pustule." I can tell you that he is doing well and that he gained his most single say weight today with 31 grams.
As far as this sore goes, they did cultures and found that there are a few more bacteria than "normal" in there so they have aggressively started antibiotics to combat any possible infection. They are concerned with infection getting into his blood stream, or worse yet, his bones. At any rate, they are confident that the antibiotics will knock this thing out. We will keep you updated.
Other than that, there was not a whole lot going on.
We have a request for prayers and well wishes. Julies Grandma has declined in health lately. She is in the hospital and is in the ICU under ventilation for a little while, until today when they removed the ventilator. Please pray that ceasing use of the ventilator will work and that she will be peaceful.
Thank you all so much for following our family's progress. It means an awful lot to us that so many are so interested in how our little miracle is doing. We pray for you all and are so grateful that we have such great families and friends.
Talk to you all tomorrow!
