Baby Braden Petska

5pm update

Braden is starting to "come around" a bit. He's still pretty ticked off at us for bringing him here. He took comfort in our arms and was able to sleep a lot today while holding him. He just ate for the first time today, and guzzled a generous 4 ounces. As for meds, he still on one of the heart meds, Milrinone. He's also on an anti-clotting med, Heparin. They have been giving him an IV form of ibuprofin for his headaches and a little morphine here and there for pain. They also have him on antibiotics as a precaution for any infection that may arise. His blood pressure goes up a bit when he's ticked, but it's been pretty stable without meds. Overall we're pretty pleased with his recovery. He's one tough cookie and a little stronger than the nurses would like him to be :-)

God is listening to our prayers - thank you for all of yours.

Steph and Rich

High guys!!
Uncle Steve has been out of touch being at deer camp, so it is nice to have this techno to keep us informed. Auntie Chris and I think Braden is some kind of guy. Hope things continue to go well. Tricia finally got Jacob home after his pnemonia spell. Tell sis to stay strong and send more pics.......
