The doctors are trying to slowly reduce his sedation.
This will allow him to get closer to a state of
Josh's pressures were stable overnight. If they stay down today,
they can get him into the MRI soon, clear his neck and spine as uninjured,
and get him out of the neck restraint he has had on from day one. It
will be another huge improvement in Josh's comfort and appearance.
At times, Josh is breathing faster than the ventilator, pushing the machine
up to his speed.
These are all beautiful, wonderful signs, but the road ahead is long and steep
with many unknowns. For now, we will take everything positive we can get.
As the doctors keep telling us, "Baby steps."
Thank you for helping Josh get to this point. Thank
you for your prayers and acts of kindness. Your support of our family
has given us the strength to be there for Josh during these past 10 days.
We would also like to begin to thank the Caln police and first responders who
arrived so quickly and got Josh on the way to Paoli in a matter of minutes.
Their speed and expertise may have made all the difference in Josh's recovery.
Please keep Josh in your thoughts and prayers today and we will update as we
are able. The prayer and meditation focus again today is for Josh's lungs to heal.
