6.5.10 - In the light of morning...

Another early morning at the hospital. Liam is resting very peacefully and all his numbers look good. The bad news is we were told this morning that he does have an infection, hence the temperature and probably the reason his lung collapsed yesterday. He tested positive for metapneumovirus, which is the same virus he was hospitalized for a month ago. So....they are going to do more aggressive breathing treatments today to try to get his left lung back healthy again and to try to get him on the safe side of the virus. Good news is they are going to slowly start feeding him again. I am so grateful he has the g-tube. At least for the pressure and stress of eating issues, we hopefully wont have any problems in that area. This should also help take the edge off a bit, especially since Liam can't take a pacifier to soothe himself since they put the new vent through his mouth instead of his nose... But they are also keeping him pretty heavily sedated too. We shall see how today progresses...

Mornings here have been very peaceful. In fact, I've started having quiet times with the Lord during these early morning times and they have been encouraging and renewing for me. It really has helped at least start the day on a positive note, even of the rest of the day doesn't pan out very well.

"It is of the LORD’S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness!" Lamentations 3:22-23
