Luke is going home today!! Yipee! Little Mama and Dad had a "room-in" last night so that he could go home today. They also allowed Prentiss to stay in as well. NOTE: they were taking pictures AND...."this is Luke, no THIS is Luke"....better get out the nail polish folks!!!
Another neonatologist was on-call this morning and he said Prentiss was anemic and needed a transfusion, thus some of his symptoms may be related to that rather than the heart. The "talk" yesterday was air-lift to Arkansas Children's Hosp or have surgery at Univ of MS Med Center. Now the talk is wait and see, treat with meds. Will potentially go home tomorrow on meds and see the cardiologist in a couple of days. At that point, I'm sure another decision will have to be made.
Just now received a call from Dad, they just received a call from doctors Luke has a heart murmer also...don't know at this point what kind. More later.
