Update On Peyton

This has been a scary and exciting week for us, the exciting part would be that Aaron was able to join us while Peyton is down at Children's, and of course the scary part would be having Peyton being on the ventilator and having all the tubes in him. I am very thankful for his little illness just to be RSV and nothing more.
I have come to relay on what the Lord and his comfort while I was at Children's watching over my little one. I have to believe that it's how the Lord feels as he watches over us when we are in a time of need. Feeling scared for his little ones and uneasy as we make our mistakes. I am grateful for knowing the Lord has a plan for us.
The boys have enjoyed having Daddy home and being able to see and play with him. It's going to be very hard on all of us when Aaron flies back tomorrow. I keep praying the flight will be canceled with the huge storm that is hitting the east coast and we can having a couple more days with him and he stay until Peyton is off the ventilator. We are thinking maybe Monday that would happen. I would like to having Aaron still be with us until than, for my peace of mind. Seeing your little one with tubes and lines going into his little body is have hard and stressful on you. I don't do much of anything while I am sitting next to his bed, but hold him little hand or leg and when we get home at night I am so very tried I go right to sleep.
Yesterday was the first time the Kodi expressed any feeling of us going down to see Peyton, it's going to be very hard on him tomorrow when Aaron is not here. I am not looking forward to having to deal with Peyton and Kodi melting down. I am praying the Lord will bless all of us to be able to make it until Peyton comes home.
Peyton is making progress, his laps are doing much better, the CO2 levels are in the normal range and his pH level is normal as well. The x-rays are showing the RSV is starting to go away and clear up, his lungs are sounds a 100 times better and is coughing a lot which is very good.
Thank you for all your prayers we have felt them, and Peyton is getting better.
