3-16-11 Update

Well last night wasn't so good. About midnight daddy told me that Jacob was really complaining about his tummy hurting. His liver is really swollen because of all the readjusting of blood flow. So they took him down for x-rays around 1:30am. They didn't show any obstructions in the intestines but did show that the liver is swelling and blood flow is backing up going into the liver. The liver has now swollen several inches past his rib cage.

They started him on Enalapril to slow the blood flow. It will slow down the flow to the heart and as a result slow down the blood going to the liver so it can adapt. This is one of those things if left unchecked and untreated it can cause liver failure. Just keep praying for him and that his liver will adjust to the new flow of blood. I will update again once we hear from the docs. Thanks for all the prayer and again keep them coming.
