tomorrow they're going to try again what they did on wednesday -- turn down the ECMO and see how his heart looks on the echocardiogram. hopefully it will go better this time.
Eleanor and Dale had the amazing opportunity to watch his doctors do a bronchoscopy on Greg. They verified that the sutures that connect his lung to his heart are still in good shape. They also saw no obvious infection. These are 'crumbs of hopefullness'.
The family is being mindful of the balance of doing things FOR Greg and doing things TO him. It sounds like they have a very supportive staff of Nurses at Children's, too. I am greatful for all they have done for Greg and his family.
I may have the opportunity to visit Children's hospital on Monday afternoon. I will be happy to take your comments to him -- read them to him, if I can. So please feel free to say as much as you need to Greg. If you'd prefer to email your thoughts for him privately, please do so at fontaholic *at* gmail *dot* com.
