Another Update

Today is Sydnee's birthday, but, of course, was not spent like our normal "birthday" day. Today was more difficult. I'm too tired to blog about all the details, but they made some changes in William's treatment since he was doing so well yesterday and he regressed significantly. When I arrived he was droopy, non-communative, staring into space and had been for some time. His oxygen levels were in the high 80s so Michael was blowing the oxygen through the tube. His doctor listened to his lungs, which also sounded worse, and made some changes in his treatment. He was beginning to sit up, eat, drink, and talk a little before I left. He had even greater improvement by this evening and Sarah said he was playful and energetic!

Happy birthday, Sydnee!

    William is a wonderful trooper, away from home & family and yet he accepts what needs to be done. I truely find William inspirational as he teaches us so many lessons. Hopefully your next posting will reflect a "better" feeling William.
    And a very Happy belated Birthday wish to Sydnee!
    God Bless,

  2. We are still praying - Complete recovery and home soon! So glad he is feeling better!

  3. I am so glad they figured out what medication to give him to get him feeling better again. Still praying for you guys, and I hope you get to go home soon!

  4. Thank you for the update. You are all in our prayers.
