Jeremy

Not good news tonight…here is an excerpt from Scott’s journal entry:

We had a long talk with the doctors today about Jeremy’s prognoisis. He has developed ARDS which is inflamation of the lungs (not just fluid build-up), due to all of his trauma this week. He is just treading water and is not making progress. The oscillator ventilaltor is on the highest settings and he is just barely holding on. The next step would be ECMO and they say that he is too weak to survive the operation to go on ECMO. To put it in perspective, the doctors say he had a better chance of surviving on that first night than he does now because now his body is so weak. The doctor’s have said that we are getting close to the point of having to make some unspeakable decisions. Lord have mercy.

All we can do is keep praying and let God do his will. We will never give up on Jeremy or on our hope, but we must accept, with faith, whatever is in God’s plan.

Keep praying for this little warrior.  The reality of this seems more than I can wrap my mind around…I can’t imagine what is happening in Scott & Amy’s heads and hearts tonight.  As I was walking upstairs, I walked by this print we have hanging on the wall.  It was a gift for Graham’s baptism from his godparents, and this is what I imagine is going on in Jeremy’s hospital room tonight. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Please keep praying…
