He is weaned off of oxygen (yay!) but he still needs a lot of pressure blown into his lungs to help them fully inflate (thus that crazy looking tube thing on his head. I wept the first time I saw him wearing it! But now I refer to it as his Superhero Hat. All superheroes wear something on their heads, right??).
The medicine he is taking for the virus is working so far! His blood work shows that the virus levels have dropped considerably.
But… he is still having breathing issues.
And because of his rapid breathing, the doctors do not want him to nurse or use a bottle for fear that he might aspirate and develop pneumonia.
Thus that tube-y thing coming out of his mouth.
There are still a lot of unanswered questions.
Every day is a bit of a roller coaster.
But we are trusting in Jesus.
We are clinging to His Word.
And believing that this little guy is going to have an uber awesome ministry one day as he shares how God SAVED his life – in more ways than one. :-)
Much love and thanks,
“He will call on me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble,
I will deliver him and honor him.
With long life I will satisfy him
and show him my salvation. ”
