What a rough day. Lincoln is very restless, agitated, and his blood pressure is still high. They are going to try to change his pain medications to see if it is the cause of his issues. Most of the day has been spent trying to keep him calm and sleeping. He did have the chest tube removed today with success, ate three bottles (one oz at a time), and his room has less medical equipment surrounding his bed. Please pray for our baby boy. We need his blood pressure to regulate, and we would love to see him rest more comfortably. It is so hard to watch him scream in agony.
On a lighter note, I did get the nurse to sing Twinkle Twinkle to Lincoln (his favorite), and the big boys think they are the luckiest kids on earth because Uncle Mike picks them up every day at school. The staff has been amazing so far, and we are hoping for a better day tomorrow. Thank you everyone for the prayers, messages, meals, calls, well-wishes, hospital visits, and thoughts. They mean so much to us. Our family is very loved.
