Prayer & trusting God- they do change things !

Samuel will be admitted to NUH again at 25 May 2009.Tuesday morning, doctors will do the airway scope in operating theatre. Sam will be under general anesthesia during the procedure.Doctor will find out that Sam's airway is open and in very good condition. After Sam gain his conscious back , they will take out the trachea tube. By the power of Lord Jesus, the creator, Sam will breath comfortably through his nose again. He will be staying in HD ( ICU place ) after that for a couple days.
Sam will be free from all tubes as after the above procedure, doctor will take out his feeding tube. After 9 months out of oral feeding, finally Sam will get again the enjoyment of eating and drinking orally : )  About the feeding tube , we have not discuss with doctor yet, but we are praying and believing it will happened soon after the above procedure.
Thank you for all your prayers.Your prayers really works.

Blessings in disguise

Sam was having cough last week. It is terrible.The cough was so strong he often vomit the secretion.The secretion was yellowish and sometimes pinkish due to irritation for we need to do a lot of suctioning.It was really sad to see Sam in such condition.He looked so discomfort and tired.
We called doctor informing the condition asking whether we need to give him Bisolvon or any medication.
Guess what ? The doctor told us that Sam can cough out his secretion is a sign that he does not need trachea tube anymore ! They can decannulate him ! Of course we need to wait until Sam is recovered from his cough.Well, we believe this is how God fullfill His promise at Mark 11 : 22 - 25. We believe Sam is recovered this week so next week he will be ready for this process.

Off ventilator by the grace of GOD

Finally, Sam is totally off the BIPAP and oxigen machine.Praise Jesus, by His grace He enable Sam to be out of those machines just a week before the rental period expired.The supplier gave us a call asked whether we would like to buy the machine or extend the rental.Joyfully we told him that we would return it instead ! Coupledays ago, the sensor of the oximeter ( machine to monitor oxigen level and heartbeat ) suddenly became error.The thought of buying again the sensor which cost SGD 240 is quite a burden .Yet we ve been tired hearing the alarming sound of it all day long when Sam was using it.Unexpectedly , when we called the hospital informing ourrespiratory therapist, they told us to return it also to the supplier.So, Sam is out of BIPAP,oxigen , humidifier and oximeter this week. How great our living GOD is. Furthermore we pray that Sam can be decanulated soon where the trachea tube be taken out from Sam's neck. It means Sam will start to breath from his nose again and the hole on his neck can be closed.

Vomit episode

Sam still vomit occasionally. Though Sam himself seemed to be fine with it as he often smile after throwing out his milk-sometimes secretions.Doctor suspect constipation as one of the cause and give Sam lactose to soften his stool. This may reduce the gas in his tummy. But looks like it cannot really solve the problem.We ve been trying many things concerning the feeding and secretion suctioning but it still happened.Now we are considering to change the milk and ask doctor whether it is necessary to re check thefeeding tube position.
