Thank you to everyone who prayed so diligently for our nephew Caine. For those who don’t follow us on facebook, I’m thrilled to be the bearer of good news here instead!
After about a week in the ICU, he made a near-miraculous recovery. On Sunday he was still in the ICU on a high-flow oxygen machine, scheduled for a cystic fibrosis screening in an effort to find the underlying cause of his struggle. By Monday he was completely off oxygen and ready for release, although they kept him another day to make sure he didn’t relapse. When he was released Tuesday his breathing was better than it had been since Thanksgiving.
He will be monitored for a while, and will be on steroids for 6 months to help repair the damage to his lungs, but he is doing wonderfully now.
P.S. His mom has requested additional prayer this morning. She says that after a week of sounding congestion free, he is struggling to breathe some today.
