Nov 3, 2007

Charlie is continuing to do really well. We were so happy to hear that Charlie could finally get his PICC line out. It came out just in time to get him and Hailey dressed up in their halloween onesies and head to the grandparent's house. Him being done with all the IV meds is so wonderful for Nick and I because we can finally start getting some more sleep!
Also, his last labs were even better than last week. Ggt was down to 1269, uncongugated bilirubin an awesome 0.2, and WBC back to normal at 10.6. His liver enzymes were a bit higher than last week but not significantly, ALT 183 and AST 124. I am still amazed at just how white his eyes look. When I look at pictures I had taken of him in August, they were so yellow almost greenish. Poor guy. He's been through a lot these last couple months.
I do need to remember how fortunate we have been to have Charlie as healthy as he is. Our friends Jenn and Justin lost their baby boy, Ian, on Thursday. Ian and Charlie were PICU roomates at Primary Children's after his surgery. Please keep their family in your prayers. Jenn and Justin were such an example to me about how to never lose faith and trust in our Heavenly Father, even in such trying times. They were such strong parents and my heart goes out to them.
