Dr. Keith Gomez
Yesterday we were very concerned – it was the worst day that
Josh has had. He stopped breathing a few times. Every time they move him, he
begins to take little, short, shallow breaths and he gets really anxious, and
we don’t know the cause of that.
Today, however, he “wrote” some things to his mother. He
looked around the room. He is more concious of what’s going on around him. He
responded in times past, but now he actually knows that he is there. He knows
who I am. He knows what’s going on now a little better.
We know that he does have his long term memory, because he
remembers us and the names of the people who have visited.
It’s going to be a long, long haul. He is not on the
upswing. He is stable but critical still.
If you would like to pray specifically, please pray for:
head – they are finished with head surgeries as far as we know, but he
still has a “blossoming” of a hemorrhage on the left part of his brain.
lungs – he is still on the respirator. They need to keep shutting him
down, so he can work on his own and be able to breathe on his own.
anxiety – something is causing him to get really nervous and breathe heavy
when they touch him or move him.
his left side - he is able to move
his left foot, but pray for his left hand.
