So…I’m back with Trey. And when I got here, he decided to give me an interesting welcome back. When I arrived at the hospital this morning, Trey was having trouble with his lungs again. He was requiring more and more oxygen help…and every time he got worked up about something, his saturation levels would go down into the 80’s. This was obviously concerning, considering the amount of oxygen assistance he was already getting.
Things were getting serious enough though that if he didn’t turn around soon, he was going to be heading down to the PICU to be intubated. Had this happened, it would have been a major set back for Trey and always possibly something he would not have come out of. Thankfully, he began to rebound a little bit. One of the pulmanologist in the hospital came to see Trey and feels that his lungs are pretty clear, but the lower part of his lungs are just needing a little help. So, we have begun some rigorous breathing treatments to help. I would add that Trey is not too fond of these treatments, but is being a trooper and at least he has rebounded for the moment. We give God glory for this.
He is still receiving significant oxygen help, but he is staying up in the 99-100 saturation range right now. He, of course, needs to come off the oxygen altogether, but we plan to slowly wean him to give his lungs time to heal like they need to.
Trey is supposed to get Campath again tomorrow and Friday, and his other treatments will be on Wed, Thurs, and Sat. Needless to say, every day is extremely important with Trey. We are praying desperately for God’s healing hand to reach down and touch Trey and we still believe his best days are ahead. God is taking great care of Trey and we know Trey is in His hands.
Last night at church, I shared a very personal side of what God has been doing in our family. It was a heart wrenching time for me, but I feel the Lord truly blessed and my church family ministered to me greatly. Over 400 people were in attendance, and hundreds were crying out to God, many weeping with me, for God to heal Trey. It was a time I will never forget. I wish Trey could see how many people love him and are praying for him. I sure love my church family and all my friends/family who have reached out to us and who are praying with and for us.
Please keep us in your prayers. Trey is deep in the woods and has a long way to go. God is our Guide though and we know He will lead us out in His time. We FULLY trust Him. Thanks for journeying with us…keep calling out to the Father on Trey’s behalf.
I will add one final thing…Trey’s skin is looking better…and we pray it just keeps on healing! All glory to God for that.
“If you believe, you will see the glory of God.” John 11:40..I hope I’m not taking this out of contents, but this verse meant alot to our family in our situation. It really boosted my spirits. Praying for you all. John and Betsy
