Once again we are so humbled by your prayers and all of the prayer warriors out there for Daniel. It sounds like the whole world must be praying for him.
The morning brings us the following updates. On the good side, his organs seem to be stable. Though he is assisted by the ECMO machine, his heart beats are still stable. The obstacle today is Daniel's lungs. One of the necessary elements of the ECMO machine is heparin, which is a blood thinner. Unfortunately, heparin can cause bleeding. Daniel's lungs, for some reason, are filling with fluid from this and the various medications he is on to reduce his swelling and output urine. Today is about trying to find out why his lungs are filling up and to try to make room for air so Daniel can breathe properly.
We are being strong and we refuse to give up hope. We can clearly see that none of our friends and family are giving up either! He is such a strong little boy. We truly believe that God sent us halfway around the world for a reason to bring him home. We believe that reason is to be with us.
Please keep praying...
