Evie’s CT scan was reviewed by the specialist yesterday. While there is visible distortion of the pulmonary arteries, it was explained that hers is not more severe than any other “Transposition baby” and that more tests need to be done. Monday we will go back to MUSC in Charleston to have a sedated echocardiogram which should give them a better picture of her heart function and hopefully explain why she continues to have poor oxygenation!
Pray with us:
-That her breathing issues would not be further compromised under anesthesia and that a ventilator will not be necessary.
-For insight for Doctors and answers to come from the ECHO. We would really like to avoid having a heart cath done.
-For grace to receive whatever prognosis!
A dear friend shared these verses I have been meditating on today! There is great comfort in the promises!
1)The Lord is my light and my Salvation, whom shall I fear
The Lord is the stronghold of my life, of whom shall I be afraid
3) my heart will not fear
…yet i will be confident
5) For He will hide me in His shelter in the day of trouble
7) Hear O Lord when I cry aloud
be gracious to me and answer me
10) But the Lord will take me in
13) I believe I shall look upon the goodness of the Lord
14) Wait for the Lord
be strong and let your heart take courage;
Wait for the Lord!
