12.31.10 - All we leave behind...

On this New Year's eve, being in the hospital is turning out to be quite symbolic for me.  It represents a brokeness made whole again, a newness, a fragility, but also a new sense of hope.  Leaving behind all this past year had for us and starting new again.  A new piece of my son's heart, a new hope for a better future for him and new changes in our family make me hopeful that 2011 will be a better year.

Liam continues to do well with recovery.  He has slept most of the day today and when he has been awake has been slowly returning to himself.  His feedings are going good and they have weaned down the oxygen to 5 liters at 45% concentration.  He does have some lingering fluid on his lungs, so they started him on a new diuretic to help clear it up.  We are hoping to possibly go home Sunday or Monday if things keep progressing on track.

****Prayer request - Please pray for the Everett family - baby Parker lost his fight with his CHD at only 11 days old.  Please pray for their family for peace and comfort during this very difficult time of grieving. **** 

We wish everyone a happy and healthy New Year!
