Day 11: Josh has been running a fever of 100 - 101 all day. He is still battling the bacterial pneumonia and is on a new regime of antibiotics. We are still seeing movement in his face and arms but Josh has not opened his eyes or responded to command. He feels so close to us, as if we could snap our fingers and he would wake up and join in the conversation.
Last night Josh had 6 friends drive in from Arkansas. They have been a breath of fresh air. They asked if they could go back to his room and play worship music for him. We thought, "Sure, Why Not?" Then they pulled out their guitar and walked back. We sat in the waiting room waiting for them to get kicked out for playing a guitar in the ICU. Surprising the ICU staff allowed it. 7 guys in an ICU playing music and worshiping God.
Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him.
We ask for prayers for the pneumonia and for Josh's lungs to strengthen. We remain steadfast.
