CICU Reunion

It was a tough night for Davis that ended up in an ER visit and re-admittance to the CICU ward at Children's Hospital at 4am.  He woke up very early this morning crying heavily with no appetite and his skin was cool to the touch.  We hooked him up to some monitors we have at the house and found his heart rate to be consistently elevated, so we hopped in the car and headed for the ER at Children's.  We left just in time as he began going downhill once we got to the hospital and was very pale with rapid heavy breathing.  They intubated him once again so he is back on the ventilator but we were told this was temporary to help him stabilize.  With his heart issue he was struggling to get back to where he should be after they corrected his heartbeat.  He is looking much better now and everyone in the CICU is happy with the direction he is heading.  We, and they, are hoping this wont turn into a long visit, hopefully not even overnight.  We will update later when we know more.

At least it looks like he was able to relax and get some restful sleep. I hope Mom and Dad can get some rest as well. Your quick reactions kept little Davis safe. Prayers for each of you are winging your way.
