UPDATE (1/24/13)

– a lil drama…but happy ending-

Beckett had a good night (again), in which we are clearly so thankful for! However, we have been anxious about a few things:

1) The results of another ‘Echo’ done yesterday on his chest.

2) And, after this morning’s CBC (Complete Blood Count), Beckett’s Platelet Count dropped from 263 to 9….9! That’s not good.

Sooo….the results of the ‘Echo’ were good! For some reason I was really nervous about that one, but everything in his chest looks ‘good’.

Secondly, the Platelet ‘Issue’: In a nutshell, they think it was a fluke. You obviously cannot be too careful about these kind of things, but we were kind of waiting anxiously for the results. They ended up giving him more Platelets to be safe, but they think he’s lookin’ quite good.

In fact, he’s looking soooo good, thaaaaaaat: they just told us that they may be taking Beckett to the NICU tomorrow. What?!?! That’s huge! Basically, Beckett is nearly considered ‘Stable’ (with a capital ‘S’) from a Cardiac Standpoint. This is crazy, and so exciting! We truly are taking great strides in the right direction.

I’d like to conclude this update with some scripture from Psalm 103:1-2 –

Let all that I am praise the Lord; with my whole heart, I will praise his holy name.

Let all that I am praise the Lord; may I never forget the good things he does for me. — with Leah ‘Whiteley’ Rupp at Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital.
