no news is no news

No new news here. His hear is still in a strange rythm. The docs dont really know why it is doing this. But he is stable and everything else looks good. The are doing blood work on him like crazy to make sure nothing changes. His heart rate has been right around 116. The meds seem to be helping with that. Im sure we will get more news when the docs do their rounds. I think they are still waiting to hear from the specialist. He actually works with adults but they figured they would give it a shot since their bag of trick is empty. (that is what the nurse said to us ha) The nurse today is good, she knows what she is doing, but she is not very friendly. I hope we get donna back for the next few days, we really liked her! Josh is going back to work for the rest of the week. He doesnt have a ton of days off left and since we don't know what lies ahead we have to be smart with the days off he does have. I was going to sleep here for the next few nights but i realized that i dont sleep in hospitals and since i have to be up here for 3 days alone im going to need my rest. So we have decided that i need to leave at night to get some rest or i will be useless during the day.

We want to thank you from the bottom of our heart for all of your prayers. God is working in the hospital and putting the perfect people around Malachi. This morning we had a pharmacisit sitting outside the room to get meds for him stat. There were 2 of the most amazing doctors i've ever met. He had 5 nurses who were focused on delivering meds. We are amazed and so blessed to be surrounded by such knowledgeable nurses and doctors. Rush is the best and Malachi is in great hands!

I came over from Cathy's blog (whatever to us) and just wanted to let you know we're praying. Our "extra" special princess is 2 and we went through open heart at 3 months. She also has had feeding issues and lived with NG for a while and now has a g-tube. I hope you don't need that, but please know it's not nearly as scary as we thought. If you do have to go that route, don't hesitate to contact me if you want.

Many blessings... and we'll continue to pray.
