This Day Last Year

From Gus' Caringbridge site:

MONDAY, MAY 29, 2006 10:22 PM, EDT

Gus is improved from where he was a few days ago. His blood pressure and his heart rate have been problems. Our hope is that enough fluid can be drawn off by this hemo-filtration that pressure can be relieved from his chest and organs so that it all will work more effciently and improve him. We had a little scare this morning, the doctors believe that Gus's tissues are holding alot of his sedation medicine. This is keeping him from moving, but we need some movement to get the fluid from his tissues back in his blood stream and be removed. His sedation was cut way back but we weren't getting any response. The doctor thought we may have had a brain bleed but an ultra-sound showed no signs of one and this evening Gus is giving us a little more movement.

We cannot express our gratitude for your prayers and words of encouragement. We can feel ourselves surrounded by your love and prayers.

"Don't be afraid" the prophet answered. "Those who are with us are more than those who are with them."

2 Kings 6:16

What precious, sweet little boy Gus was. I am so sorry you have had to endure such a loss. I can't even begin to imagine.

I will keep you and your family in my prayers. Especially this week, as I know it must be so difficult.
