Parole Denied

Just a quick note to let folks know that it doesn’t look like Josh & I are coming home with Julie next Wednesday. :( His test results today showed that his liver enzymes were about the same (76,68 instead of 73,73) and that his “toxic metabolytes” levels had gone back up this week. Last week’s drop is still an encouraging sign, his liver enzymes have been coming down for a couple of weeks now, and other things they’re watching (neutrophils, lymphocytes…) are all looking pretty good, so the big picture is still very encouraging. But our short-term goal of coming home as a family doesn’t look like it’s going to happen.

If you pray, just keep praying and we’ll trust God with His timing.

Josh is his same old joyful, fun-loving, resiliant self.  Naturally, he was a little disappointed with today’s news, but his Grandpa always said “don’t get your dauber down” and I’m not sure he ever has. He sure is fun to be around. :) I’ll see if I can get him to do another video update one of these days.

Hope everyone has a great holiday weekend. Maybe we can ask the nurse for a tent and make s’mores in the microwave. ;)

    I will certainly keep all of you in my prayers. I hope you can find some way to make the holiday more fun. We don’t have big plans either but are planning to spend time together before our round of admissions begins.

    I would love to be on your e-mail list. Please lift my e-mail from this comment and add me! I will pray specifically for the needs you record.

    Going to read some more back entries now to try to get a better idea of what’s going on.
