More of the same…more of the same!! Thank you God for answered prayers!!

Our day did start out pretty crazy/funny. Around 4:00 this morning Creed decided it was time to go potty, and potty he went. 500ml of poop later, Creeds bed was full and a mess was made. Creeds poor stuff horse never saw it coming and we unfortunately had to put him down. RIP Garrick, you’ll be missed. You can imagine how long that took to clean up. Of course while all this is going on his dialysis machine decided to go as well. Shortly after he had a chest X-ray to see those little lungs. And while we’re waiting on the machine to be fixed, let’s grab a quick CT to look at his lungs as well. Both showed normal findings. He spent the rest of the day resting and visiting (still sedated) with his visitors. Highlight today was when Casper came and Creed reached out to touch him. His nurse turned the sedation off briefly while Casper was here so that Creed could interact somewhat, with him. He continued to do very well with his vent settings, it sounds like tomorrow is the day. I will know for sure tonight after the docs do their night rounds. Praying hard that we say goodbye to that ventilator. Looking forward to a low key night, I’m sure Creeds nurse is hoping for a poop free night. We’ll see…

I’ll let you know what tomorrow brings as soon as I know!!

Creed received a big ol box of cards today from Americus. A sweet little elf brought them up to us. So exciting to see a box of love!! I can’t wait for Creed to see all of them!! Thank you to everyone who has sent him cards!!! We’ve loved seeing the piles come in our room.

Much love!!
Creed’s mom
