Judah had a good day. He was very calm and comfortable almost the whole day. There’s no exact plan as to when they will take out the breathing tube. Possibly tomorrow but it may be a few days. We don’t really have a preference, we just want to make sure he is 100% ready.
This morning, one of the cardiologists let us know that Judah had some rapid heart beats over night. This is the first time there has been any concern regarding his heart. It’s possible that it was just because at the moment they saw the rapid beats, he was being “cupped.” (Hard patting on the back to loosen the mucus in his lungs.) That could have interfered with the leads on his chest. The rapid beats only happened once and only for five beats. They will continue to watch it. They did say that it could be treated with meds but we would like there to be no problem at all.
Please continue to pray that his body and lungs continue to get stronger and that God would give the doctors wisdom and good judgement as to when to take the breathing tube out. Also, please pray that there would be no problems at all with his heart and this would be the last we hear of this issue.
We give God the glory for bringing Judah so far and for keeping us the way He has. He truly is good.
