We heard back from the Cardiologist and Cardio-Thoracic surgeons today.
They do not believe that a surgery would help Carter's airway. His airway is so damaged, and the part that could possibly be compressed would not make a difference. The ENT said that this is the worst airway he has ever seen. With such a very low chance of this surgery working, we have chosen to not pursue it. Our baby boy is suffering, and it's time to put a stop to all of the torture he's been through.
We have chosen Sunday as the day that God will choose whether Carter will continue to bless us in this life, or grow his little wings and join his Grandpa Mike in heaven. The doctor will remove his breathing tube, and see what Carter does. If he is struggling, they will give him some medicine to make his passing painless. As bad as all of this sounds, we really are at peace with this. We feel like our little guy has been through enough, and we pray that if he does pass...it will be quickly.
Tomorrow is a day filled with blessings, visits from friends and family, and a photographer from Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep.
Thank you so much for all of your prayers and support. I know that some of our readers have been with us from the very beginning and have shared in this journey with us. This sweet boy has touched so many lives in his short 14 months. I am going to ask you one more time to pray for little Carter. I'm asking you to please pray for peace for him....whether that be from breathing without a machine, or growing his little wings. The little guy just needs peace.
