Baby Brice needs some big prayers

Brice has been warmed as of yesterday afternoon and usually babies start to show some improvement after a 72 hour cooling.

We obviously know the NICU is a roller coaster and one set back can bring you 2 steps forward and that's what we are hoping for.

Although, Brice's ABGs are worsening since yesterday and he is now on a high frequency vent, breathing over the normal amount to compensate for his levels.

His blood pressures are unstable and is on some high doses of dopamine. Hoping and praying this is just a common effect post cooling and he recovers quickly.

We are waiting on results of his cardiac echo and pray that is normal because little Brice doesn't need any other obstacles against him.

Please pray this is one hill on the roll coaster and he will start heading in the right direction. Pray for strength for Connel and Trisha, as they are on a road of unknown and it's scary. I know.

Bless Brice and his parents, please keep all 3 of them in your thoughts. Brice sure is one "big fighter"

He's a heartbreaker. I can only imagine how badly his parents must want to pick him up and hold him close. I pray they are able to do so soon, and that he will be restored to full health.
