“Don’t worry about anything;

instead, pray about everything.”

~Philippians 4:6 NLT~




Josiah Huckaby is back in the hospital.  Please pray for this sweet family.

They finished the cath around the 1pm & everything went well. We thought this cath would show mild pulmonary hypertension, if any because his last several echos have shown none, but when they got in there his pressures were showing severe pulmonary hypertension which put him at a higher risk than anyone originally thought. We chose to continue the cath so they could do whatever intervention he needed. Echos aren’t exact & the dr said they sometimes completely miss pulmonary hypertension on them. His right upper vein had a little narrowing so they increased the size of the stent & everything looks great on that side. The left upper vein stent was completely closed but it rerouted itself (definitely a God thing!) & is draining into his left lower vein. Since it seems to be draining fine that way, they chose not to do anything else with that vein for now. His pulmonary hypertension did decrease quite a bit when they increased his oxygen during the cath…which is a really good thing. It shows us they can use oxygen to help treat it as needed. He is currently resting with sedation & they should start weaning that in the next couple of hours. If all goes well tonight & tomorrow morning then he should be able to come home tomorrow. To God be the glory!!!
