Today is not such a good day for our little Tate. They have raised his morphine level so that he'll be more comfortable. He has a lot of thick secretions that they have to suck out frequently. His right lung is looking really hazy. He hasn't urinated for quite a while, that's due to the anti-biotic he's on. They'll change that today. I am scared that all of this is happening because of his heart and they won't do anything about the heart until he's more stable and his lungs are clear. I'm just afraid that it's going to keep going in this vicious cycle of no surgery because he's too sick, he's too sick because he needs the surgery... on and on. I pray there is an answer soon to what they will do to fix this. We should be getting more updates today, so I'll keep it all posted as I find out. So far his cultures are clean and showing no signs of infection, but they still think it's an infection. Please pray for us! Love you all!


  1. We will be praying for little Tate and your family. I hope you get encouraging news soon. What a strong little fighter he is. Take care

  2. Zeffie, you and Brandon and Kell and Shell have been in my thoughts and prayers so much lately. I know all this is so hard and trying but your strength is evident and I am very proud of you. I can relate to some of what you have dealt with with having a child with a cleft palate and other conditions and not knowing what kind of life your little loved one will have. I know you know that heavenly father is watching over you and your family. You are in my thoughts and I will have all your names put back again on the list at the Denver temple. I have been doing this before now but will continue till we are out of the woods and Tatum is home with you. I love you all so much and want you to know I am here for you if you need anything. I love you so. Stephanie, Chandler and Zoee.
