We started November off right with some family time together on the UCLA campus on, believe it or not, a rainy day!
Some quiet time with Rudy…Sunday Nov. 2nd…
How grateful we are for Oma and Opa and the many friends who have transported the kids back and forth on the weekends to see Rudy. It’s not an easy way to get to know your new baby brother but how very proud we are of the kids and their efforts to engage in this journey as much as they are able to. Rudy knows how much he is loved by his big brothers and sister!
There is some good news on the “Rudy Front”…Dr. Brian just came in and said he’s encouraged by the decreased fluid output from the chest tubes!!!!!! There is little fluid coming out of the left chest tube and although there is still fluid draining from the right side, it IS less! If the output continues at this rate or decreases even more, he will cancel the surgical procedure on Thursday. This is great news. (Thank you, Jesus, for such a tangible answer to prayer!!) So, we ask that you continue to pray for this fluid to stop draining completely! Rudy looks a little pale to me today and when he is awake, he’s fussy but his numbers are stable so it has been a quiet morning. Well, it’s time for my daily cup of soup downstairs…more later!
