Don't have the time or energy to go into great detail at the moment, but Clara needs lots of prayer right now. She has had a very tough afternoon. They've been having a very hard time keeping her blood oxygen levels up, and the doctors have told us that ECMO (the heart/lung bypass machine) may be necessary. They've got her on nitric oxide to open up her pulmonary blood vessels, and for the moment that appears to be working, and we probably won't have to go on ECMO tonight.
Also, pray for Chrissy and me. It's been very hard to watch Clara struggling so much and succeeding so little. We've been warned that CDH involves lots of ups and downs, but I guess we weren't mentally prepared for such a big downswing so quickly. We're going to try to get some rest. Pray for a big upswing to come quickly!
