Yesterday was a wonderful day! Having days like that make you feel lighter than air! Yesterday Dominc was so calm and peaceful all day, we think it has to do with it being one of the first days that he has had a completely full belly. Poor little man was starving for two weeks, it hurts to even think of it. Two of the children came in to be with Mom for the day and to be part of what I am calling the "healing team". Last Sunday when the family came in to see Dominic, he was still unconsolable, not taking in anything around him except his pain. It was difficult for the children to see him in this state, but we did notice something. I had put Philomena on the bed next to him and Marko was next to him too and they began to tell him it was ok. There were a number of nurses and doctors watching this interaction and everyone was so touched as he quieted down opened his eyes and looked at them. He proceeded to touch their faces and his heart rate went way down. It was so touching,so from that I am deciding they are an important part of his healing. Cecilia, Marko and DAddy came in yesterday and you could tell it was so soothing for him to interact and hear them. Today Philomena and Augustine will come in and be their part of the "healing team"! I am posting a pretty graphic picture here that I hope you will not mind, but I am hoping that you will take it to heart and pray about it. It is a picture of the hole between his eyes and we really need to pray that it heals up without any infection. He did have a fever this morning, but so far we are not sure of the source. At the same time he has the fever he actually gave me a couple of smiles and a giggle this morning!! Also, Dominic kicked out his arterial line in his leg today (blood all over ) so they will need to be finding another way to access his veins. IVs haven't been lasting more than a day and so they really need to put in another picc (the pic line is not working either) line and arterial line.
ONe more prayer intention please, I am asking prayers for Mark. He is really struggling as the provider and protector of his little baby. It is extremely difficult to see his child suffer and not be able to fix it or to protect him from it. The whole ordeal is really taking a toll on him and he asks for prayers to have peace with the situation. It is not a normal thing for a man to let go of control, when he sees his children or wife suffer. Thank you for the prayers. And now some pics of the little man that you all are praying out of here!!!!!
