MORE INFECTION

Max's ECHO on his heart yesterday detected a hint of an infection within in his heart...actually near his VSD which is the most dangerous place, according to his doctors. HOWEVER, they are repeating another ECHO today to confirm that is indeed an infection and not tissue.

Additionally, the culture they drew from his lungs also is growing out an infection.

Today will be a very important day as we learn more. "Clinically" (O2, heart rate, respiratory rate) he is fairly stable, which is encouraging. However, the infections are certainly not good.

I am praying sooo hard right now that my heart is about to bust!!!!
Max has decided to wait just a little longer on his heart operation but he will be up for it very soon.
I LOVE the new picture of Max, he is just so beautiful!!!!!
I hope his praying bear is working around the clock with lots and lots of love and faith.

Amy and Max,

I'm so sorry to read about the recent setbacks. However, it's good that they found the infection so they can do something about it. Stay strong little Man. You guys are constantly in my thoughts and prayers.

Love,
Drew

Hi, Amy and Maxi-Max:

I'm so sorry to hear about the infections and hope the doctors can help clear them up soon. You both are in my thoughts.
I don't think I've ever seen a cuter picture of your BIG little man! He looks adorable with all his furry friends. He's so cute, I just want to eat him up!
Love,
Meredith
