UPDATE (7/31/13)
– Short-n-Sweet –

You all deserve some sort of update, but this may be short and to the point:
Becket is doing much better today than yesterday. He has still struggled with his sats on-n-off throughout the day, but as the day progressed, he seemed to pull it back together. He did dip numerous times into the high 30s…which was super scary (well, for me). But he always pulled himself back…eventually. It was usually after he would get a lil angry or too worked up. He’s been kinda out of it for the most part today…….a lot of sleeping. But I guess that’s a good thing. Sleeping is Healing, right?

He got taken off the ventilator this morning. They said that he was awake and “telling them” to take the tube out! Though that’s great news, we feel like it’s a cruel joke because they will just reintubate him tomorrow for his cath. His cath IS scheduled for tomorrow, but we are being told that he is 4th in line for the day, and that if there are too many delays, they may actually even bump his cath back to another day/time. That would certainly not be ideal. We’d like to keep this process rolllin’. But all in due time. Please remember, cath’s aren’t easy, and there are always risks involved. Please pray that if (hopefully) he has the cath tomorrow, that it goes well and they are able to fix and mend anything necessary for Beckett’s full recovery.

We’ve been staying in the Ronald McDonald House since we got back down here, but will most likely end up staying with our friends in the house we’ve been staying at these past many months. They are such a wonderful family, and we are so blessed to have no many amazing friends in our lives like them.

Sorry this was so short, but I hope you’ve found it informative. Thank you SOOOO much for the prayers. We have not, and will not ever take that for granted. Thank You. Thank You. Thank You.

  3. First thank you for letting us know how Beckett and you guys are doing. I know it is emotional for you to do that. Praying for God to give Beckett the strength to keep fighting, for wisdom and strength for you both and for wisdom even beyond their training and experience for the doctors, nurses and other medical personnel. Praying without ceasing…Go Beckett – you can do it!

  4. Beckett is a fighter. The Great Healer is holding him softly and tenderly in His arms. We pray for both of you and for this unexpected journey you are on. Thank you for taking the time to let us know what is going on in the midst of trying to hold each other up. We are praying for a miraculous scheduling freeze to keep him on the schedule for tomorrow. Our love in Jesus. We LOVE that couple you are staying with! They are pretty in love with Beckett, you and Jesus!

    We’re praying for your precious little one, and for you two as you endure yet one more roller coaster of emotions. Grateful to you for taking the time to keep us all informed. We love you guys!
