February 12,2016 Update

Josiah is doing much better, and hasn't had morphine or tylenol all day!
His smile is back, and we are so thankful for that :)
They will reasses tomorrow to see what the plan is for his return home.

Update: February 11,2016

Josiah is doing better the past day, and as long as he is on morphine is able to eat. The sores on his cheeks, tongue, and throat are still causing him alot of pain.

His spirits were lifted after receiving the morphine and getting a visit from his cousins Natanael and Malachi. They brought him some balloons and some presents, which brought big smiles to his face :)

Please continue to pray that Josiah's mouth would heal, and that the fever would stay away so that he will be able to go home soon.

We thank you all so much for lifting him up in prayer to a God whose hand spans that heavens, and yet He cares in minute detail for the smallest one!

A picture from Josiah yesterday, finally able to enjoy a bit of food :)

Getting ready to go to sleep with his teddy bear from his cousin Natanael :)

Prayer Request

Please pray for Josiah. He was admitted to the hospital yesterday morning because of a fever and throwing up. He is neutropedic, resulting in susceptibility to infection and viruses.
He is hooked up to IV fluids making him quite swollen and has painful  sores on his tongue making it hard to eat.
The doctors think it is a virus, but are not sure yet as the results from the cultures have not come back yet. Joe is having a really tough time and is not cooperating very well. He hasn't smiled since he has been admitted, and those of you who know him, know how unlike Joe this is! 

Please pray that he will recover quickly, that strength would be given to all those who are close to him, and wisdom to the doctors as they care for him.

Our God is the giver of strength!

In the day when I cried thou answeredst me, and strengthenedst me with the strength of my soul. Psalm 138:3
