He's Doing Well

Tim and I were just in the PICU to see Ethan and he is stable at this time. Other than all of the lines, the first thing I noticed was how puffy he is. That is normal and happened last time but I guess I forgot. He is on a ventilator and numerous medications and pumps. He has 3 chest tubes, a urine catheter, subclavion line, arterial line, pacer wires, an RA line, and a pulmonary line. He was receiving a blood transfusion when we saw him. His pressures were a little high but are coming down, and his oxygen sats were low (around 71%), but are coming up and are now in the 78-79% range. Please continue to pray for a speedy recovery. Thanks!
