Right leg........

Joshua is continuing to do better, he is starting to cry and sleep most of the day like all the other babies.

The only concern the doctors had today was a blood clot they found on his right leg. It's not considered severe but needs to be monitored daily. The doctor stated that he has a good blood flow running down his leg and eventually it will get better. If the blood clot does happen to get worse then they will have to thin his blood out. This is definitely not a good thing, but it could have been worse. At first they assumed the infection could have traveled to his bone but that was ruled out with an X-ray and ultra sound that was given this afternoon.

Other then that Joshua is doing good, they went up on his intake of mike. His test have came back negative for an infection two days straight, now we just need one more day for the test to come back negative so we can be assured that the infection is completely gone. He is off all of his pain medication and they have removed his tape from his little battle scar. His voice is also coming back little by little since the oxygen tube is now out.

So........... we can say today was a good day and only hope that tomorrow is even better.


  1. Girl im in so much pain from this surgery but hearing that Joshua is doing better and seeing his handsome face puts a smile on my face. Stay strong Joshua.

  2. Melissa he looks just like you!!! Sorry Jose he is a beauty just like his momma, but im sure thats fine with you.

  3. Hey guys... I had no idea... This is an incredible story and I only pray the best for you guys... Joshua is a beautiful (looks like mommy)baby boy! God Bless!!!

    And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us. And if we know that he hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests that we have asked of him.
