Step Backwards

After a string of days moving in the right direction, we seemed to go a little backwards today. When Ann Marie got to the his bedside today Coy was requiring 100% oxygen and having trouble maintaining his breathing. Ann Marie was immediately concerned and sent me a message saying I should probably get up there. His doctors gave him another diuretic to try to relieve the fluid from his lungs. They also started him on a 10 day dose of the steroid hydrocortisone. Luckily something helped him and Coy was able to breathe easier later this afternoon. By the time we left him tonight he was down to 62% oxygen. Please pray that he will be able to pee off the fluid on his lungs. That the steroids will help speed up the development of his lungs. That Coy's ventilator settings will get weaned down.

Thanks for praying for our son.

We are praying for healthy lungs and less oxygen today. We pray for positive responses to his meds. We pray that his care providers find the right game plan for Coy's lungs. We pray for Faith and Peace for Chris and Ann Marie.

You are all in my prayers everyday. I pray that Coy continues to bet the odds and improve in health.

"The will of God will never take you to where the grace of God will not protect you."

Love and God Bless,
