“Pour out your heart to him,
for God is our refuge.”
~Psalm 62:8 NLT~
Carol B. Sealey‘s Update:
I want to thank everyone for all the prayers, phone calls, and text messages these past several months. I know Barbara Bennett Gaines has been keeping everyone updated on my condition but I wanted to update what’s going on. Back on May 21st I had surgery for colon cancer and then the nightmare began. After being sent home I developed abdominal Sepsis. I was put back in the hospital and put on antibiotics. After being sent back home, without any medication, I again came down with severe sepsis with septic shock. Everything in my body was shutting down. I was dependent on dialysis due to end stage renal disease. The doctors told my husband that he had to make a decision because I was never coming out of ICU. After Steve talked to our son and my sister he decided no, he wasn’t giving up. These doctors didn’t know that I have a higher doctor than they are and he wasn’t ready for me yet because all of a sudden I was coming back. There was so many folks, some I knew and others I didn’t know, praying for me. As of today I am cancer free, off of dialysis after being on it for nearly 3 months, kidneys all of a sudden kicked in and started working. I was in a wheelchair when I left the hospital because I could not feel my legs and could not walk. As of today I am walking with a walker inside the house but have to use a wheelchair outside. I still have a ways to go but each day is a little better. My God is awesome. Without him I wouldn’t be here today.
Update on Josiah Huckaby:
It did my heart good to walk in & see little man laughing this morning!!! He’s only given us some brief smiles over the last week. Sunday & Monday were good days!!! They were able to wean his oxygen from 4L to 2L. When he gets to 1.5L, we can start weaning his vent pressures back to home settings. He’s still having quite a bit of GI issues so they are running some extra tests to make sure we aren’t missing anything. They have swapped him from our regular feed schedule to a continuous feed (which means he is getting a small amount of formula all day) in hopes that the lower rate/volume will be less stressful on his stomach until the problem is resolved. We have no idea how much longer we will be here but praise the Lord we are finally headed in the right direction!!! To God be the glory! Job Huckaby
