Teeny Tiny Truman

This page is all about Truman, born Aug. 8, 2006 to Kara and Ben.

Wednesday, August 30, 2006

Update: Midday Wednesday, August 30

I just spoke with Truman's nurse. He's having a very stable morning. He's off of the blood pressure medication and the ventilator settings have been weaned some. He also is back to being very fiesty, which means that he's feeling a lot better today. A different type of xray indicates that he does NOT have a bowel perforation.

Because he's stable, we anticipate surgery could be soon before he destabilizes again. I will keep you posted to the extent I have time today. (I'm in the middle of a big client meeting today).

Re-allerted all of my prayer warrior friends up here to keep all of you on the top of the list during this set back. So good to hear that he is doing better this morning. Truman is even on the radio, I put him on the prayer list on a christian station up here. (KNNK) Kara & Ben, take time to love on each other during this time, I know how tired and stressed that you must be, but Truman needs you both at your best. We love you and pray for you often during each day.

I have been silently following your story through the Ivillage Preemie Board. My son developed NEC at 10 days old that needed surgery, removal of a large portion of his intestine and a jeujonostomy. A very long NICU story made short, he came home on his due date and is currently snoozing in his crib. I will keep Truman and your family in my prayers. I pray that Truman remains strong and surgery can sucessfully repair his bowel. Many (((hugs))) to you and prayers for Truman.
