Samuel Kenneth Finzer Update 64

Praise God Samuel came home from the hospital yesterday. Samuel is still breathing harder than normal. Leyla and I are elated that he is home. Samuel seems happy to be home in his own bed. Samuel has an appointment next week to check on his chest pressure dressing.

Samuel Kenneth Finzer Update 63

A quick update. They took out Samuel's chest tube yesterday. They also had a second set of X-Rays which revealed an abnormal pocket of air. The surgeon and the doctors will be meeting today to talk about the X-Rays. Samuel may be coming home as early as today.

Samuel Kenneth Finzer Update 62

Thank you for your prayers. Yesterday afternoon Samuel turned blue and was taken by ambulance to Children's hospital. After a series of x-rays, an ultrasound, and a cat scan they determined that his right lung completely collapsed. The same surgeon that performed the operation for the Diaphragmatic Hernia put in a chest tube and inflated the lung. Samuel is sedated and resting comfortably.

By the providence of God, Leyla's mom is on vacation now and uncle Jorge and aunt Celen are there as well so there are plenty of people to take care of the kids. I also have a half day of work today before the fourth of July holiday. It was an ordeal but God brought us through it. Thank God for Pastor Randall and his wife Felicia; they stayed with us the whole time.
