What a day...


Well today Ezra greeted both Beau and I by being wide awake. Today the Doctors let Beau know that they were starting Ezra on the Fresh Frozen Plasma again but instead of giving him 4 cc's an hour it would be 2 cc's an hour. They gave him another dose of the IVIG lastnight as well. Dr. Seger (who is the doctor for Ezra right now) also told us that Dr. Whittington would be here Sunday night and would like to meet with me and Beau Monday morning. I am so anxious to hear what he has to say to us about this. The abdominal ultrasound came back and they told us that it all looks fine. I believe they were checking the blood flow and what not to the liver.
Lastnight before they gave Ezra the IVIG they had to put another IV in little Ezra's hand and it now looks like he has a boxing glove on. Poor little guy. Oh yes they also gave Ezra another dose of Lasiks today. Lasiks are a dieretic to help him get rid of some of the fluid that is built up in his body. I'm going to have to say that through all of this Ezra has been quite the little champ. He's a tuff little man that is for sure. The only thing that really bothers Ezra besides being hungry is his gas. Because of the oxygen he is on he gets so much air built up in his little tummy and it hurts our poor little man.
I have a ton of pictures to post so here are just a few from today and I am trying to get all the other ones organized.

Oh my gosh, he's so cute! The tape on his cheeks makes me so sad :( I'm so glad that the doctor will be coming so soon! Good luck with all of that, I hope that he has some great answers and ideas to help your little guy!

S...I just wish I could pick him up and hold him...I feel so good about things...you know what I mean? He kind of reminds me of Tucker a bit...although it's kind of masked by the edema. Guess what, I just got the cadillac of pumps too...so you tell the little man that his aunties are in the barn pumping premiums...hehehehe! I love you all so much...We are praying for him. O
