Hey everyone! Sorry we missed a day! Lincoln is doing well...he actually has had a pretty decent 48 hours. Yesterday we hit 3 huge milestones! 1 - The Dr's had done another echocardiogram on him and found that his cardiac function and pressures have improved so they are saying "hold off on going back in to make any adjustments for now." 2 - He was able to be weaned off one of his heart medication called Epinephrine all the way. 3 - His vitals and his urine output have been great! If he keeps making these steps forward he should be transferred out of the CTU back down to the NICU before to long...so that is the prayer! Keep moving forward! Pray that as they try to wean off his other meds and make adjustments on the ventilator, Lincoln responds positively and becomes more stable. Keep praying that his little heart band is tight enough and the coarchtation stays open wide. Ben & Rachel Dhillon surprised us with a visit and of course the crazy youth pastor had to be funny in the picture. Kristen and I got to bathe Lincoln last night before we left the hospital. Kristen got a picture of me in the action. If you look at his face, a lot of his swelling has gone down due to him loosing the fluid by peeing...see, God answers prayer! So the plan for today remains the same...keep him comfortable, wean medication, watch and pray! We love you all and talk to you soon!
