Update on Andrew

Today has been a bit crazy for us. Around 4:30 a.m. one of Andrew's doctors came to our room and told us he needed to be transported to Tupelo. Andrew had been having some trouble with his lungs and after treating him with meds here and observation they decided it was time to transport him. Alan went to see him around lunch today (i'm still in hospital) and was able to spend about 45 mins with him.

When he hears our voices or feels us touching him his numbers start to rise and he gets a little more relaxed. He's on 96% oxygen this evening to keep him from having to work so hard on his own. He has Pulmonary Hyper Tension and my understanding of this today is he's not able to get proper blood flow through his lungs to carry oxygen to his heart.

We will try to keep everyone updated as best we can. I'll "try" to update after Alan and I visit him tomorrow. Please keep Andrew in your prayers. He's a strong little boy and likes to be left alone. He doesn't like people bothering him...he's like his Daddy. Also, keep Hannah, Hollise, and Houston in your prayers. They're going through a big change right now.
