It has been 2 days since we have updated, but there haven't been many changes. Dustin & I got the chance to spend quite a bit of time with Baby Todd Tuesday. It was rather difficult to leave him actually. The nurses were allowing him to be awake more. We were definitely enjoying the moments we got to look into his eyes and see him respond to our voices...we find this to be very encouraging.
Today hasn't been quite as encouraging, however. In the past 12 hours Baby Todd's oxygen levels in his blood dropped again. Therefore, the doctors had to sedate him again to keep him still. The less he moves, the less oxygen that his body uses. His liver, kidneys and lung seem to be showing signs of improvement. Pray that his lungs will continue to improve and oxygen levels stablize.
It was nice to get to celebrate Dustin's birthday yesterday. Fortunately Baby Todd was having a good day, so we were able to leave the Hospital for a while and go for dinner. The staff here at the hospital found out it was Dustin's birthday...he was eating up all the attention the nurses were giving him! Thanks for all the cards and emails, they definitely helped make the day special.
