Max's fever kept going over 102 degrees today. He really didn't feel good, his head kept trying to hurt. They did a chest xray, it was fine. They ran cultures but couldn't find anything. They gave him tylenol, the fever stayed up. At lunch he tried to take a pill and when he coughed he thought he had coughed it up. He kept coughing and trying to breath ~ when I asked him if he wanted me to uncap his traech he wouldn't let me ..... until he could hardly breath. We had to call respitory in to suction him so he could get some more air.
After that incident, his throat was sore and he was having trouble breathing. His heart rate was really high, the therapist said his he sounded as if his throat was swollen. Various doctors came in and looked and listened. They gave him some motrin, something they hadn't done before because they back surgeon said no ibuprofen because it can interfere with the healing of the bones. So they gave him some and it brought the fever down but not as much as they hoped.
Max feel asleep and as he slept one of the nurses came in to check him. The doctors told me they were thinking about sending him back to the university because they couldn't figure out what was going on. We had planned on having a surprise for Ray tonight ~ sorry those of you who I was going to call today....please forgive me! ~ and I wasn't sure if I should cancel. We decided that we were not going to cancel, satan was not going to win, we were not going backwards. Ray would have his party and Max was healed and would not go to the university.
The nurse told me that his temperature was 38.3 c It needed to be 38 c or he was going to the university. The one doctor came in but didn't wake him up. She wasn't sure what to do. She hated to keep him and then have something really bad going on. I told her it would be okay. She decided to wait until supper and decide. Dr. Conway came in later and said he had decided to keep him here but to moniter his condition. I was very releived. Max was still running a feverr at this point. Not long afterr the Dr left Max was all sweaty. I wiped him off and around 4:30 he woke up. He felt fine and was wanting something to eat. When the nurse came and checked he had no fever. Thank you LORD!
We had friends come over and surprise Ray and Max had a good time visiting with everyone in his room. God is so good. Satan tried to divert us from seeing that God was in control, but that failed and God.........
S....C.....O.....R.....E.....D and the victory is God's! (I can't do it as well as you can Pastor!)
So as you rest tonight know that God is in the little things, God is in the Big things, God is in everything that you will let him be in. He cares for you and has a plan and a purpose just for YOU!
