UPDATE 11/20/18

Today was similar to yesterday. Beckett was doing pretty good first thing in the morning and then during breakfast his heart rate shot up again for no apparent reason. As the day wore on his oxygen saturation began to get lower and lower until he was finally increased on his oxygen higher than he has since we’ve been here. So here comes the good news. This evening he has looked the best I’ve seen yet. Goofing around with his dad, laughing and just overall having a good time. He’s gotten videos from school, church and cousins, as well as fun surprises from friends too! We can not express enough how much these mean to him. They make his day and his whole face lights up. His breathing has been very relaxed, and they have been lowering his oxygen back down. They also did an echo and some blood work this afternoon to rule out his heart as a problem and it came back completely normal. Praise the Lord! Here is even better news. As of rounds this morning, we are heading home tomorrow. Now, he does have to go home on oxygen, but at least he gets to come home. They believe that as this virus continues to work out of his system he will work his way off the oxygen. We are hoping that happens by the time he is supposed to go back to school on Monday. It’s going to be a great thanksgiving at home, full of rest, family and our many blessings.
