Last night, Marcello got an additional chest x-Ray that showed his lungs were much better. This morning, he continues to be on the Oscillator and they were able to get him down to room air. His hematocrit levels were low today so he was given a blood transfusion. His CRP this morning was 2.1 much better than 6.2 that he had been. This is good because it means his body is responding to the antibiotics. This afternoon Marcello's heart rate began to fluctuate low between 70 - 90 but his oxygen saturation remained good. We think this may be because he remains on the Oscillator vent. His weight was down 10 grams but still at 4 lb. 0 oz.
We pray that The Lord allows Marcello to recover and that any additional surgeries be kept to a minimum. We believe that The Lord has a plan for Marcello. We continue to pray for healing for Marcello and to us as we continue to miss Manuel.
