Zachary rested well last night. Loopy from narcotics. Conversations are reportedly entertaining with him:-)
The good news is: his white blood count is lower today indicating the infection level may be improving.
The bad news is: kidney function has not improved any. Still a major point of prayer!
Zachary underwent another dressing change and surgery this morning where doctors had to cut out more tissue that the infection continues to eat away at. He has begun wound vac therapy (which we are familiar with from when Evie’s surgical site became infected).
Zachary’s pain has intensified after this procedure. Please pray that drugs will keep that under control so that his tired body can get the rest that it needs to promote the healing process!
So grateful for the friends (and strangers) who have written that Zachary is on their hearts and that they are praying! If only he could see the rippling effect. The friends of friends who have heard and are lifting him to the Father. What a blessing!
