Monday Morning

They're not taking any chances today as far as bothering Ramsey. They put ear plugs in last night and they still have signs posted that he is resting. Even the doctors just look through the window to check all his stats. They hope to decrease his dopamine today and get some of the puffiness down which will help with the surgery. It is still scheduled tomorrow so unless there are any changes, I think they will go through with it.

Dennis figured it would be a good day to make a quick trip home for some clothes and bills that need paid. My mom and Reed are still here so I think I will play with him today and just check on Ramsey periodically. If the doctors aren't even entering his room, we all figure it is best for us to keep our distance. Fortunately, we are not far from his room if we are needed.


  1. Hello I am also a CDH Mother. Your Ramsey sounds like a tough little guy. I pray they can lower his blood pressure meds and that his saturations stay stable so that surgery can be done. These little babies are so strong. Keep your faith up and know that God is there with you at all times. I know it is so tough right now cause you are probably both totally exhausted. Be sure and eat and take a minute or two to just be you. Praying hard for your little guy. If you have any questions or just need to chat I'm here. I've been where you are and there is hope.

  2. How comforting and encouraging to read some of the posts, especially the one from Terri and Ava. We continue to pray and trust in the Lord. Please take care of yourselves and hold on tight. Hugs are sometimes the very best thing. Sending some your way.

  3. Just sending thoughts your way. God be with you.

  4. Thanks to all! Teri, I appreciate your encouragement.

  5. Thinking of you guys today! Rest well, Mr. Ramsey! Many prayers for a smooth surgery and recovery tommorrow!

  6. Lisa~ Praying for your little one and praying for the surgeons as they operate that they have the wisdom and patience to help Ramsey, and praying for you that you have the strength, and patience needed as you endure all this. Our God is mighty and can do mighty things!
