Michele called to say that Max was holding his own. The next few days will be crucial. Keep the prayers coming, please. They were having trouble regulating his blood pressure and his blood gases are not where they would like to see them. It is common to have many ups and downs in the few days after open heart surgery, and we are seeing that now. Max has constant care, with two nurses at his side 24 hours a day, carefully monitoring every function in his body and everything coming in or going out. He is still on a respirator and receiving nutrition just via IVs. Hang in there Maximus! We love you!
