Update

We met with the doctor a little while ago. They don't know why Keegan's not bouncing back like he usually does after a procedure. He has been on pedialyte only all night because we got to our room after the formula lab had closed. He's been on his formula now for about 45minutes, so we'll see if that makes a difference. Our doctor will be back late this afternoon to see how Keegan's doing. We want to see him acting more like himself and see if his stools improve before they discharge us. We are hoping that the recent diapers have been the result of yesterday's events and not the start of Keegan going back into his old patterns. Keegan has been continuously asleep or up and fussy since this morning. He hasn't been awake for more than about 45minutes since he first woke up. It's still pretty early in the day, but it is not looking good for discharge today. The doctors said that liver biopsies in and of themselves don't normally cause problems such as these, but as Gray said, Keegan did have a giant needle stab him in the liver yesterday, not to mention a tube yanked out of his stomach. For now, we wait, we hope, and we pray that this is a brief visit with more answers than questions. Thank you for joining us in prayer for our awesome Bug. We love him so much, and we're so amazed at the love all of our friends and family have shown him too.

p.s. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, LITTLE MISS AVERY!! Avery turns 4 years old today. She is such a fighter, and we are so blessed to be friends with her family. Please continue to keep her in your prayers, as her parents are currently facing some very difficult treatment decisions for her.

p.p.s. We added a few pictures of Keegan post-procedure to his latest photo album on the picture site.
