Silver Lining in the Clouds

Well after a very obnoxious call from the immunologist right as I arrived at the Crammers to pick up our yummy dinners I decided to call Isaac's nurse and what a surprise he has had a great day full of miracles. They have weaned the oxygen down from the 80s to the 40s. His blood pressure has been steady and Dr. Walden wanted to give him milk this morning but decided to give him one more day to make sure he would be ok and they plan on starting the milk feeds first thing in the morning which will help hinder any infections from continuing to take over and make Isaac sick. We are currently praying that there are no other infections other than the one that showed up last week that they are calling pneumonia because it reacted to a certain antibiotic as pneumonia would I have heard two different nurses and the immunologist call the growth on his tube ecoli so I might need a medical person to explain that one? Anyway He had an awesome day today after the horrible weekend so we are headed in the right direction and maybe they will go ahead with the steroids later this week and it will really make a difference in a good way. Well I'm off to bed and will head up there first thing in the morning (10:30AM) so pray everything will still be good tomorrow.

    E. Coli has many different variations, and is a natural part of the flora of the large intestines of people and animals and most of the variations are pretty harmless, except for a few like the one famous one that makes people so extremely ill from uncooked burgers and tomatoes and such. That is really good news about the milk!
