Sunday Morning December 26th
Josh had a rough Christmas.
He is resting very comfortably
After the doctors reduced his
sedation over several days with
only positive results, he was in
distress for a good part of the
day yesterday. He had a very
high heart and breathing rate,
sweating, fever, and
surprisingly, an increased
white cell count after it had
the day before.
This prompted a midnight CT scan that
showed very little.
The doctors increased Josh's sedative again
and he is now resting peacefully. His white
cell counted and fever dropped dramatically over night, leaving
everyone scratching their head. Was it the reduction
of his sedation, a phenomenon called a sympathetic
storm, a fever or a combination of things?
For now, we will be content with another quiet
day while we watch the snow move in.
Thanks again to everyone who is on the Trott's
cooking schedule and to all of you who set up
this blog or are just following along. Thanks to
our friends, neighbors and relatives who are praying
for Josh and supporting us in so many ways. We are
