Our little miracle boy
Bodie had a GREAT day! He just keeps getting better and better. He surprised all of the doctors and nurses today by responding really well to surgery!!! His little anatomy seems to really like both the pacemaking system (they set it at 110bpm) and his new shunt. He's been satting in the mid to high 80's since he came back from surgery and his color is fantastic (they tell me it will only get better!)! They're weaning down on the oxygen and cannot believe how low his oxygen requirement is. Everyone says "well, his problem must have been that the shunt wasn't working for him and he needed a higher heart rate" - but we know the truth - that God worked a miracle in our little boy in the past week. Praise God for listening to your (and our) petitions and saving our son! I think we'd be hard pressed to really find a medical explanation for the unbelievable turnaround we saw in him this week. What a wonderful miracle for us!!! Please continue to pray that he heals in the coming days, comes off the vent really soon, and comes home soon after that! Thank you so much for your continued prayer for Bodie!!!
