I need to rest but wanted to give a few details and pictures. Caleb will have to have a heart catherization on Monday afternoon. This procedure will open up and stretch out a small hole that exists between two chambers of his heart; the hole is actually helping maintain blood flow to where it needs to be, so they want to keep that hole from closing. It will take about 2 hours and will be performed at Peyton Manning Children's Hospital. Caleb will come right back here to the NICU when it's over. They expect him to have a little bit of a rough day, just being fussy and cranky from not getting to eat for quite a while, but they say the procedure is pretty minor.
Specific prayer requests:
- Pray for the heart cath to go perfectly well. Pray that Caleb recovers quickly and that the procedure does what the doctors hope it will do.
- Pray for Jonah. It's getting harder on him to be away from us and we feel torn between wanting to be with him and wanting to be with Caleb. I miss him a lot and am praying that God will help comfort Jonah and make him feel secure.
- Pray that somehow I could get approved to stay here in the hospital as a patient one more night. When I get discharged, potentially Sunday afternoon, I'll have to move to a hotel and of course it will be much less convenient than being down the hall from Caleb. I'm going to ask my doctor for this in the morning.
Here's some pics!
Thanks for covering us with prayer and encouragement, we feel it! Our family is so blessed and thankful! Thank you Jesus!
