Happy 20 Weeks Old, Josiah!

We are thanking God tonight for 20 weeks with our amazing little boy! We know that these 20 weeks have been one continuous miracle in so many ways. I'm so grateful for our sweet boy. We were going to throw a bash for him in the PCICU today, but Milo had to leave this morning and I didn't want to have a party without him. It works out great anyway because next week Josiah will be 21 weeks old and it turns out that 21 is Daylia's favorite number (just ask her), so it will be fun to celebrate the number 21. Seriously though, Daylia is obsessed with the number 21. She talks about the number 21, being 21, counting to 21, measuring 21. My personal favorite happened last week when she asked me how fun something was and when I said it was going to be really fun, she replied with, "Is it going to be like 21 fun!" Now that's fun! So all our friends here in the PCICU get ready for next Wednesday when we celebrate Josiah being 21. It'll be like 21 fun!

As for an update on Josiah, he's doing well. He spiked a temp of 103 two days ago so we went through doing all the cultures and so far nothing has really turned up. So we can either say, "Thank you Lord" or "What are they missing that's causing the fevers." I choose "Thank you Lord" one because I want to praise Him and two because quite frankly it's a whole lot less stressful to live that way. Josiah is on course to increase the time he spends CPAPing. The hope is to increase his strength for the next attempt at extubation. Right now he CPAP's for 30 minutes at a time. He's going to work up to doing a 3 hour stretch. Josiah's wound vac is still in, but the surgeon says Josiah's chest looks really good and is healing well!
