Samuel Kenneth Finzer Update 24

Merry Christmas.

Samuel had a couple set backs today. They had to bump up his oxygen from 40% to 66%. He was retaining a lot of fluid this morning. He was looking really puffy and pale. They gave him another dose of lasix to drain the fluid. Fourty five minutes later he was able to pee a bunch. This not only improved his looks but also his stats. They were able to reduce the oxygen to 45% this afternoon.

Samuel has a lot of hair. He may need a haircut before he comes home or he will look like a hipee. :)

I talked to the nurse practioner and one of the doctors. They both assured me that the setbacks are normal 48 hours after the surgery.

Thank you for your prayers.

James 5:16b
The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

One day at a time huh? I had a dream that Samuel was like one year old, had LOTS of thick dark hair like his parents, and looked just like Greg! It was so cute. Can't wait to see him when he is just like that! Bet you all missed him yesterday...and everyday! Praying.
