Buying Time

I just left the hospital for the night...I hope. Wyatt gave us quite a scare. The doctor did not think he would make it through the night. Luckily she gave it her best shot to save him and was successful for the moment. She did warn us that he still might not survive all of the lung problems he is facing but was pleased with his response to her interventions tonight. Her goal was to buy him some time to heal and that seems to be what she accomplished. She had to use a needle to draw air out of a collapse in his right lung and reposition one of his chest tubes. He currently is receiving Nitric Oxide to help get oxygen to his lungs. These seem to be working because his last blood gas had improved.
At this point we need nothing short of a miracle in order to one day bring little Wyatt home, so continue to pray that his lungs will heal.
