As I’ve mentioned, Trey has had a fever pretty much around the clock and the nurses have been giving him antibiotics and rotating toradol and Tylenol to control the fevers. We know there has to be an infection somewhere, but none of the cultures or lab work have revealed anything.
This morning, Trey started having trouble with his lungs again. Not as bad as before, but his saturation was headed in the wrong direction…so, to hopefully stay ahead of any problems, we put him back on the Vapotherm oxygen machine. We feel the infection could be in his lungs and need to provide him some support. This, of course, is a set back, but perhaps the Vapotherm, and in-line treatments, will clear up any infection and take care of his rampant fevers.
So far, he has responded wellto the Vapotherm, but if his lungs started to decline, the next step would be to put him on a ventilator…and we do not want to do that. We believe his lungs WILL continue to respond well though and this machine will help with any infection he might have. According to Emily, Trey was talking and acting fine this morning, but his breathing was just a little shallow and fast. Please pray the Vapotherm will help with any infection he might have and that his lungs respond very well.
I was reminded of these Scriptures this morning, and even though I’m not with Trey, I’m praying Jesus just heals him today, just as He did Jarius’ daughter (I’ve added Trey’s name and changed the age to make it a more personal prayer):
“and ‘he’ implored him earnestly, saying, “My little son is at the point of death. Come and lay your hands on him, so that he may be made well and live.” But overhearing what they said, Jesus said to the ruler of the synagogue, “Do not fear, only believe.” And immediately the boy got up and began walking (for he was seven years of age), and they were immediately overcome with amazement (Mark 5:23, 36, 42).
Oh Lord, I don’t fear anymore…I only believe! Trey is Your’s…You made Him…please heal and breathe life into Him and let his testimony be one of Your power in His life. Father, we speak the name of Jesus over Trey and know that at the name of Jesus, everything bows. Please Jesus, in Your name, cause this sickness bow it’s knee to You and may Your power run through His body! We love You Lord!
