September 16, 2008 - AM

Well,technically it's pm since it's 12:30..

Everyone at our house seems to be feeling better (Praise, GOD!). Sean & Cary went to school today. Kayleigh informed me "I no spit up today mom". I feel better. So we're on the upswing there.

Seth is still taking things slowly. They worked on weaning a bit last night but didn't get very far. This am, they tried to pull chest tubes and put in bulb syringes. They couldn't get one to seal and in the process he developed some pleural effusions and one of his lungs collapsed a bit (the left I think).. they ended up putting the chest tubes back in. Currently, they want to pull the central line in his neck as it comes close to a suture line internally. They're trying to put in a pic line, we've been here since 11 am and have barely had a chance to even see Seth..

The cardiologist says he feels like Seth is doing well so we're just following Seths' lead on his getting better..

Thank you for your prayers and support!
