Quick Update

Just a quick update because we still don't know much...

Samuel's cardiac cath procedure yesterday didn't go as planned.

The balloon procedure to break up the scar tissue in Samuel's aorta was not successful. The area of the aorta that has narrowed due to scar tissue is much larger than they thought, and the balloon doesn't work well on such large areas. We don't know yet what the next step is in order to reverse this narrowing.
We are praying that God will give the doctors wisdom as they decide on next steps, and we are continuing to pray for God's miraculous healing in Samuel's heart!

We haven't heard from the doctors yet regarding the pressures and oxygen levels, so we don't know anything yet as far as how the bands and VSDs are doing.
We are praying for good news from this!

One praise we do have...
They put the catheter into the artery in Samuel's right leg, and one of the low risks that they have to tell you about is that the artery could close off permanently.  When Samuel came back from the procedure he didn't have a pulse in his right leg. They said it could just be spasming and return in a few hours, or the artery may be permanently closed off.  Well overnight they were able to start picking the pulse up on the doppler, and this morning the pusle in his right leg is almost back to normal!  We are praising God for this!

We didn't really get the news that we were hoping for, but God is still here, ever-present. We fully believe that God knows the exact number of Samuel's days, just as he does for each of us. We will continue to cherish each moment with our brave Samuel David as we pray for healing and wisdom.

But above all, this is ultimately His story, and it is all for His glory.

You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you. Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord  God is an everlasting rock.
Isaiah 26:3‭-‬4
