Special request

Noah's last carbon dioxide readings were too high... when we were in the PICU he was riding around 50 (somewhere in the upper 30s or low 40s is normal).  The pulmonologist was going to give surgery the green light if he was in the same neighborhood today.  Unfortunately, his reading today was 72.  Not good.

No one seems to be able to tell us why he isn't venting the CO2 effectively so we aren't sure what will correct the situation and make him ready for surgery.

Please pray that they decide to do a second reading later and that it is lower so we can still have Noah's surgery tomorrow OR that they do another reading tomorrow and surgery is an option for Thursday or Friday.
