Well we knew this would be a rollercoaster ride and it has. Jacob had a very very rough day yesterday. His lungs are very sick and he needs everyone's prayers.
Jacob has fluid in his lungs and now around his lungs as well. The fluid was getting better inside of his lungs but they had to pull back on his diuretic because it was hurting his kidney levels. When they did that, they noticed build up of fluid outside of his lungs. He needs a drug which we all have, its like a natural soap we make. Jacob doesnt have any due to his heart complications. When they gave it to him the first time he did ok but when they tried again his body did not like it and his stats dropped way to low. So he can't get that. So now we have to just wait for him to pee out the fluid from inside of the lungs. As far as the fluid on the outside of his lungs, they may have to put in a chest tube this morning to drain it.
Yesterday he had a very hard time breathing and keeping his o2 levels at a good spot. They had to tweak his vent all day and his oxygen crashed a few times. He crashed once with us right there, this was very scary. They have told us that the way his lungs are right now he could not handle the bypass he would need to be on for surgery. His lungs are very very sick. Until we get them better we have to wait. Waiting puts more strain on the rest of his body.
THey are thinking his surgery will be sometime early next week ut we have to take it day by day.
Last night he had a better night, his stats all stayed at a great range. Please pray the xray turns out better this morning. We need a miracle.
Jacob we love you more than you could ever know. Please stay strong.
