Update 2 Post Stent

Great News! They tapped into the fluid that was trapped around his lungs and they pulled out 25cc (almost 1 oz) of clear fluid and that was all. The right lung popped up.  There is no need for a chest tube!!!!!!! Thank you Jesus! One less thing Gavin has to be put through, less chance of infection.  I couldn't be happier.

Our little man is very puffy and is expected to be bigger tomorrow.  Discolored and intubated (not breathing for himself), sedated, but no chest tube. :)

There is always a reason to smile!

You guys don't know me; I saw a post from Krista Janke & read little of your story. I just wanted to let you know that you've got prayers way down here in FL. Keep us posted. God Bless.
