I know I haven't updated on little Lukas since his birth and I am terribly sorry. The last two weeks have been a blur. I promise his birth story is coming very soon. In the meantime we need all your thoughts and prayers. I am updating from Lukas' bedside at Riley Hospital in Indianapolis. If there are typos please forgive me, as I am on my phone.
Lukas is in heart failure. His bicarbonate levels dropped from 30 to 19, his saturations are below the target range so he is now on oxygen, and he's working mighty hard to breath. His neonatology and cardiology team have started him on IV Lasix to attempt to be more aggressive until his operation. His open heart operation was originally scheduled for the 27th, but due to recent developments is being moved to next week.
If you can spare them, please send our baby boy some prayers. He needs all he can get right now!
