Fletcher has had three consecutive good days! We are so grateful for these good times and we are cherishing every moment we can with him. Fletcher is still in the PICU his respiratory problems are much better. His electrolytes are still low but they are leveling out. TCC wants Fletcher off of the IV electrolytes for 48 to 72 hours before he can return. He hasn't had any IV electrolytes in two days! He will stay in the PICU over the weekend and if all goes well he'll go back to TCC on Monday.
Even though Fletcher is in the PICU we have enjoyed seeing our friends there. The nurses and RTs have taken such great care of him. They truly love this sweet boy. Some of the new (to us) nurses and RTs have fallen in love with him, too. I have been told several times that they have heard about Fletcher for the last two years and they are enjoying getting to know him. Lots of his care givers from TCC have visited him in the PICU. It's been very sweet to see a glimpse of how many lives Fletcher has touched in just three years. Though he can't speak, he is teaching us so much.
We would appreciate your continued prayers. I'm ready to be back at TCC, but I'm also very nervous. I keep telling myself to be in today and trust him to Jesus. It's hard. I also remind myself that only the Lord knows the number of Fletcher's days. I just want to make the most of them!
