Update on Josh 12/6/16
Today is 10 weeks since Josh’s accident. It sometimes feels like we take one step forward and two steps back. Josh’s infection has returned and he has been moved to the acute care side of the hospital. The doctors are again going through the routine of administering various antibiotics to combat the bacteria. We hope that in a day or two, Josh will be moved back to rehabilitation while the rest of the antibiotics are administered. We ask that you pray diligently with us for the infection to go away, for good.
