What a day! For the first time in two weeks we heard these magic words... favorable odds! The odds are now WITH Samuel, instead of against him! We are full of tears of joy!
If not for the follow-up words of "it's a long road ahead, with many hurdles" we would be singing from the rooftops. Regardless, we are celebrating :) Our miracle, Samuel's miracle, is happening right before our eyes.
Two of the lead pulmonologists met yesterday and discussed our little boy. Due to his body being able to lower its CO2 level, they now think there might be enough good lung for Samuel to come home one day! When our attending told me this today - I cried. Thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers! Please keep us on your list - it's a battle ahead, but do-able :)
What a week... on Tuesday Olivia had an appointment at MUSC (all is well!), so we all went to visit Samuel (thank you NNICU team!). Our babies were together again for only the second time in six months. This is what we walked away with...
A few little helping hands :)
