I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. Psalm 139:14

Update 11/8/11

Carter has really started to perk up the past few days.  His bright personality has peeked back out and honestly if he was not hooked up to all of his monitors you would not know there was anything wrong with him.  He does get tired easily, but he was septic on Friday.  All of your prayers are helping and he is doing really good. It is amazing how far he has come in just a few days. He has had his NG tube put in and his tube feedings have begun. His fevers have been down since Sunday and the infection seems to be on the downhill slide. We are waiting now to see how well his stomach tolerates the feedings through the NG tube. The doctors have a rate that they would like to see Carter tolerate before they are comfortable making their next move.  He has had his TPN turned down to half of what it was going and he is still getting his lipids.  Hopefully, if he tolerates his feedings through his feeding tube we can discontinue the lipids and TPN. Your prayers are working! Please continue to pray for healing, his stomach to tolerate his feedings and for him to become infection free!
