The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said,
“Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!
Update on Josiah Huckaby written by KK last night
Update: Josiah has been doing great! It’s hard to believe he has been in the hospital for 394 days and that he will be 13 months old on Sunday. They have been able to wean his vent settings and his oxygen since getting him back to his regular dose of steroids & Lasix. We have had some HUGE praises this week. He had an echo on Tuesday & it showed his pulmonary hypertension pressures have gone from mild-moderate to normal-slightly elevated. He’s never had an echo show pressures below mild. He also got a new type of trach called a FlexTend, which is a lot more flexible & will help him be able to be more mobile. The plan is to try to swap him back to the home vent on Monday. His little personality continues to blossom…he is so silly, always laughing at anything & everything. He is now getting tastes of baby food from a spoon. He likes to help hold the spoon like a big boy & he started “chewing” his baby food this past week. It’s so sweet watching him. It amazes me how God instills things in us so that we naturally know how to do some things…no one taught him how to “chew”. 😊 We are currently working on learning some signs & learning how to clap. He has 3 teeth coming in on the top. He loves to watch us blow bubbles & then cackles after they have all popped. He is still a TV junky. Some of the IMCU staff have given him the nickname “Hoss” because he’s such a big boy. 😂 God is so good and we are so blessed to have such an amazing little man!!!
