“I pray you may be active in sharing your faith,
so that you will have a full understanding of every good thing we have in Christ.”
~Philemon 1:6 NIV~
Bryan and Rita Tate are waiting for his platelets to increase so he can go to MD Anderson for the next treatment. Then, they hope to be home for Christmas. Keep the in your prayers.
Quick update on little man:
Since Josiah never got a swallow study in the hospital, our speech therapist didn’t feel comfortable trying baby food as an outpatient. So today he had his 1st swallow study…and even though he was mad & crying the entire time (because he decided not to take a nap today & he was being restrained) he did great!!! He now gets to start working in eating baby food & chewing on hard munchables (like carrot sticks & puffs). With no limitations on the amount of baby food he eats…they said to “just feed that boy”. 😁
Also, he has a heart cath scheduled for Monday (12/3) to check his right upper pulmonary vein that was balloned in October 2017. His pulmonary hypertension hasn’t improved since it slightly increased while he was sick with a UTI in August. So there is some concern that that pulmonary vein may be starting to narrow again causing the increase in his pulmonary hypertension. They can’t get a good look at it on his echos so they want to be certain that nothing is being missed.
This boy is growing so much & his little personality continues to blossom. He keeps us on our toes with all his shenanigans! He has come so far in the last 5 months. To God be the glory!!! 💙💛💙
The colon test did not show a problem, so possibly all David’s issues relate to his MDS. David got a unit of blood yesterday and will have a TTE and heart conversion today. Keep praying and give God the glory for all the medical knowledge and procedures available to those with a need. David’s procedures this week have been at Ochsner in Covington and Baton Rouge (two days) and Lakeview in Covington today. We’re thankful to be able to get around to those with more training and knowledge than we have,
