It feels a little like we've been riding a Roller Coaster.
Up and down, and whipped back up again,
only to come crashing back down!
It's certainly been an interesting journey,
and we do not have all the answers. The specialists don't either.
It's a little confusing and difficult to untangle.
Austin was admitted for heart failure
management and to prep his body for surgery.
While in ICU Austin's temp was up a little.
(It was HOT in there).
Due to Austin's physical condition,
it was decided to give a potent IV antibiotic.
An infection could be fatal to Austin at this time.
It was a reasonable thing to do.
However, the culture that they took
at the time the antibiotics were started came back negative.
The IV antibiotics were stopped as soon as that news was received.
But, they had already rendered their nasty side effects.
Crohn's is now in a full-on flare.
He seemed to be well managed on that front on admission.
Austin is now more sick than he was last week.
Two sets of specialists are continually assessing Austin ~
Cardiologists and Gastroenterologists.
Please pray that they both would have insight and wisdom
to know what to do for Austin.
Please pray that we would have wisdom to
pursue the right course of treatment for our precious son.
Please pray that God would continue to have HIS
way in this whirlwind. HE is Good. Always.
Thank you so much!
We appreciate each and every one of you!
With Love, Camille
