june 15th – update

A God-given breakthrough happened today. The drug that I mentioned yesterday was made available to us, without even having to go through Johns Hopkins. The pharmacist told Kent that it is given in the nebulizer (a machine that pumps medicated mist right into the lungs), which is the reason that it is so expensive. With some people, only a few vials of it have drastic good results. With others, it can take MANY (up to 75!) vials to achieve the same results. The result we are looking for is a decrease in the secretions in Kent’s lungs. The first vial (dose) was administered tonight and had a good result within an hour.  Kent was in happy shock. Three more doses will be given tomorrow. Pray that this is the solution we have been waiting for. Kent was also put in a room on the floor today. It is nice to be out of ICU.

I’ll let you know how it goes tomorrow. THANK YOU for praying about the medication. As usual, prayer changes things. In Him, Davidene
