Update on Josh 10/11/16 10:30 pm
Today marks 2 weeks since Josh's accident. In those 2 weeks, we have seen Josh's condition greatly improve. Improvements that are difficult to see day to day but much clearer when you take a few steps back. We praise God for the life we see in Josh. We praise God when he coughs, or when he snarls his lip, or when he moves an arm or a leg. We praise God for Josh.
Josh's fever has remained down but will still be on antibiotics through Thursday. We spoke to the doctors this morning and it looks the decision has been made to go ahead and do a 2nd neck surgery. This is a good thing. He has had the front fused together and will now have the back fused together. This will fully stabilize his neck. That surgery will take place on Thursday. With the next step in Josh's recovery being physical therapy and increased movement, the our family takes comfort in knowing that his neck will be stable.
A few updates ago I spoke about this being a marathon. After that post an old friend from Mobile reached out with this marathon analogy that I found very comforting and I wanted to share.
