Update on Kent’s Health

It is now Friday evening, and Kent improved slightly today – at least enough to let him stay home for now. He will receive steroids all weekend, and see the doctor again on Monday. We were already scheduled to travel to Johns Hopkins for his regular check-up on Wednesday of next week, so please pray that we can go. We learned today that he does not have pneumonia, or any such illness. His inflammation factors from his lab work are spiked, which indicates increase inflammation in his body. He has no fever, and does not feel ill except that he can hardly breathe. He possibly inhaled something that badly irritated his airways, and they subsequently became very inflammed. When they become inflammed, they swell, reducing the size of the interior of the airway. Not enough air can get through to sustain any movement, so even walking to the table for a meal becomes very difficult or even impossible. That is how things are at our house. Pray that he can sleep and that the steroids will continue to give improvement. We are both doing well. We have been here before, and we are more prepared at this point in the journey to know what to do and who to call for help. God has always been gracious, and He still is. Thanks for your prayers and comments. In Him, Davidene
