New Medications

Josiah had a pretty decent day today with temperature sitting around 100- 100.8, funny that we feel pretty happy about a temp like that. His O2 sats were good all day. We came back to the hospital tonight and found out that his temperature, unfortunately, spiked to 103. Bummer! Also, his nurse pulled back on his G-tube to see what was in his tummy (one of the bonuses to a G-tube, you just put big syringe on the end of it and pull and out comes whatever is hanging around in his belly). When she did this she pulled out what appears to be old dried blood. Not good. The Md's came and checked it out and think that he has an erosion of his stomach lining (an ulcer, I guess). He said that this happens a lot with chronically sick kids. So he got put on three new medicines tonight, Reglan, Zantac, and and IV Nexium. All of these are suppose to inhibit acid in his GI tract. I can't believe that Josiah just got put on 3 new medications. I don't think I like that very much.

    Stephanie Quintero Nate, he will be much more comfortable. If this makes Josiah's little tummy not hurt, I am for it!! What a wonderful discovery. Now that can be healed because we know to pray for it. That is very uncomfortable and once that starts to heal everything he takes in will be much more tolerable. Maybe this is the answer to the fever question. Standing & expecting a miracle for the heart that holds on AND never gives up!

    Anonymous Precious Wilson Family,
    I am a friend of Brooke Hartig's and she has shared your love story with me and encouraged prayers for all of you. I don't think there is anything I can say to ease the loss that you are experiencing right now, and you already know that sweet Josiah is at home and healed in the most complete sense of the word with God. Please know that prayers are being lifted up to heaven all around you and for you-- by people you don't even know. I hope some comfort comes from knowing and feeling the prayers of people your beautiful son and your inspiring family continue to touch.
    With hopes for comfort and peace,
    Kristina Bush Summerville SC
