Will saw his Doctor buddies today in Kalamazoo. The cardiologist is very pleased with his current status. His blood pressures have improved significantly since she saw him last and since he was at U of M. Your prayers are definitely being heard! As he grows (and the boy is growing!), his aorta may be growing also allowing for some better blood flow. We know there is still a major issue there that will have to be addressed. But, for now, we'll take it!
The other bit of news, unfortunately, not quite so good, is that Will needs to have his stomach procedure re-done. That is the funky little twist thing that helps to keep his food in his stomach where it belongs. He is vomiting quite a bit right now and some of that aspirates into his lungs which is contributing to his chronic respiratory and lung infection issues. So, we don't have a date yet, but it will likely be soon that Will makes a little trip to Spa Bronson to see his girlfriends (aka nurses) and gets a little twist to the stomach. There is actually a name for the procedure - it is called a Nissen or something like that. But, since most of my medical knowledge comes from reading fiction novels, I'm not quite sure of the spelling. This will probably entail a one or two day stay at the hospital and in the grand scheme of things, is a pretty minor issue.
Thanks for all your prayers, words of encouragement and all you do for the Arny family. We so appreciate all of you! In the not quite so accurate words of Bobby Flay - "...and for all you awesome prayer warriors out there, keep doing what you're doing and ask yourself, 'are you ready for a prayer down'?" Or something along those lines!
