Luke is riding a Wild Oxygen Roller Coaster and we are not having fun!

Luke had another rough night last night. He kept dropping way to low on his oxygen. This is our first time to be at Children's in Seattle and so far I'm not sure how impressed I am. They are constantly apologizing for not doing what they say they are going to do. I guess we picked a very busy day to come to the Hospital. We started out sharing a room with a crying baby, but I told them that I couldn't take that all night. They then moved us to another room, I feel a bit sorry for the little boy and his mom next to us, they were totally quiet all night, while on the other hand Luke had a very busy night. Losts of nurses coming in to see why he wasn't breathing. I like the nurses and the Dr.'s they've all been great so far, just way too busy.

Our biggest prayer request right now is that they will figure out why Luke's oxygen levels keep dropping down so low and then jumping up real high. It's like a wild roller coaster ride, not a fun one that's for sure. I spent a lot time in prayer and singing last night. I think I got about 1 hour sleep, ya I'm ready for a nap that's for sure. We are waiting for the ENT to come and take a look then we will hopefully get a few of our questions answered.

As I was reading my Streams in the Desert devotional last night, this portion really stood out, I so desire to trust God and not be shaken when all the circumstances around are seemingly out of control. Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion, which cannot be shaken but endures forever. Psalms 125:1 There is an old Scottish version of this psalm that strengthens our blood like iron:
Who clings to God in constant trust
As Zion's mount he stands full just,
And who moves not, nor yet does reel,
But stands forever strong as steel!

Thanks once again for your prayers they are so important to us,
Luke's Mommy Suzi

Just wanted to let you know that we are praying for a quick resolution to this. Right now is a busy time in all hospitals. I hope the ENT comes in soon. Justine's ENT's schedule is so crazy . Are they treating him at all yet or just waiting on the ENT.
