a couple bad nights

This week has been very hard Tuesday and Wednesday evening especially. Isaac is
having problems keeping his blood pressure at a steady place but last night it dropped
so low they had to give him dopamine. He is also having problems breathing as far as
getting enough oxygen in and expelling all the carbon dioxide out. All of this the Dr
thinks is being caused by his heart what they call a PDA Here are some links to help
everyone understand.
Keep the prayers coming and the biggest problem right now is the PDA
they will be taking the tubes out of his belly button and putting in a picc line
which is basically an iv that will go through a blood vessel all the way up his arm into
his chest so it doesn't get ripped out when he moves around.
