Friday

  One thing I ask from the LORD, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the LORD and to seek him in his temple.

~Psalm 27:4~

 

 

Josiah Huckaby (Written by K.K.)

Update: So Josiah had a bit of a rough night/morning (I guess he partied too hard for World Down Syndrome Day yesterday). He spiked a fever & his heart was pretty high. They have gotten some cultures & started antibiotics to be safe. He was very restless when I got there this morning so they started a mild sedation drip to prevent a pulmonary hypertension crisis from stress. They will probably start to wean that tomorrow…he just needed some good rest so his body can bounce back from this little sickness. Also, we had a care conference today to discuss our plan for coming home. We were kind of caught off guard with some of the info we got today. So here is an abbreviated version of what is going on…they started trying to wean his steroids & Lasix (he never likes this by the way) which sent him taking steps backwards. After the doctors met today they decided that wasn’t the best idea. So he will go back to his normal doses on both of those meds & will be back on the hospital vent for a week or 2 while he gets back to where he was before they started messing with those meds. Then he will be put back on the home vent for an extended amount of time. This brought up the fact that they don’t anticipate us coming home soon like we originally thought. The IMCU doctor anticipates an extended stay for now because they don’t feel his lungs are stable enough for discharge & they want us to have plenty of “play” room on the vent for when he gets sick at home. So we are again back to just waiting with no estimated discharge date. We know we serve a mighty God and He can change this at any minute! We just continue to praise Him for how far He has brought Josiah and for the parents He is molding us into. To God be the glory!!!
