“Who is wise and understanding among you?
Let them show it by their good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom.”
~James 3:13 NIV~
Josiah had his heart cath today. He did great but we were a bit surprised with the results especially since we weren’t seeing symtpoms of anything. The short & simple explanation is: they weren’t able to balloon or stent anything because of several issues they found. We will have to come back in a few weeks to try to stent 2 pulm veins…one of those is completely closed. We will also be looking at adding a new med to try to slow down the progression of his pulm vein disease. It is not a commonly used med here but Texas children’s hospital has been using it with some pretty good results. Our interventional radiologist that did the cath recently moved here from Texas & we’ve heard a lot of good things about him & the hospital he came from. They seem to “specialize” in pulmonary hypertension, so we feel confident in his abilities to help us navigate through the next steps of treatment for Josiah. We know that God’s plan for Josiah is far better than anything we could remotely come up with. We will continue to praise Him & His faithfulness.
I am always amazed at how God created us/our bodies & with every bit of new information about Josiah, we learn just how amazing we are as His creations. And just how much care & detail He knitted us together with. The doctor showed us pics of the issues & showed us how his body has compensated so that it could continue to function as close to “normal” as possible. It just blows my mind!
To God be the glory, great things He has done!!! ❤❤❤
