- Jude's x-ray from this morning showed a little more inflation in his lungs, and his lung volume was more consistent today, even though it wasn't a significant increase over yesterday.
- Jude still has a lot of edema and swelling, particularly in his abdomen, but he's started to show some small signs of improvement. Hopefully the medical staff will continue to be successful in removing fluid from his body over the next few days.
- Jude's nurse was able to begin turning down some settings on his ECMO circuit today. These weren't significant changes, but they're a start.
Based on the general feedback we've received from the doctors and nurses, Rose and I feel that this week will be a make-or-break time for Jude: He can improve and undergo surgery, or he can languish.
Please continue to pray with us for a miracle. Jude's body is broken; God can heal him.
For nothing will be impossible with God.”
