Griffin/Fluid Update

Friday, June 3, 2011

Today we had our first echo since the surgery. We were anxious to see the results and find out if there was any fluid around his heart (that is why he is here in the first place, you can click here to read more about that if you need to get caught up). So the echo guy comes and I guess there was still fluid remaining around the left side of his heart. It does look better, but still it's there none the less. As a result we got Griffin up and had to force him to move around so that the fluid wouldn't just sit there. He wasn't too thrilled about the idea, which you can see from the video below, but as a result we saw some fluid drain from around his heart. The doctor said he thought the fluid that drained would be the amount that they saw on the echo. Now the prayer is that no fluid would accumulate over the weekend so that when he has an echo on Monday it would come back clear and they can start looking at him returning home.

We cannot leave until they see very little drain from his chest tubes and each echo comes back clear. I know that day is coming soon.

One other prayer request is that they did a culture of the fluid that was around his heart and found a staph infection. They don't seem too worried about it and he is on antibiotics which should wipe it completely out. However, pray with us that it wouldn't materialize into anything worse.

Here is a little progression of Griffin's day from not so happy to happy. He is a trooper and I love him with all my heart.
