I had actually been working on another post when I got a Kaden update that I wanted to pass along. We really covet your prayers for this precious baby boy. The road ahead is going to be a long one and our fear is that this is just one of many obstacles he'll have to face.
The doctors found the source of his infection - his shunt. They had to perform surgery yesterday to remove the shunt and manually drain the fluid that had collected. Instead of a broad spectrum antibiotic, he's on one that should specifically fight this infection. The doctors said that if the infection has cleared up in 7 - 10 days they'll do another surgery to re-install the shunt. He'll then have to completely recover from the second surgery before they'll even think about letting him come home.
We have a few specific prayer requests at this time.
- That the infection will clear up and the next shunt surgery will go well
- That C will have the strength and peace to get through these next few weeks
- That C will be surrounded by people who have her and Kaden's best interests at heart and can give her the moral support she needs
- That Kaden will be completely healed by His hands
