I have held off writing about Isaiah today. Partly because lack of sleep and I don’t mix too well and partly because I was hoping to have some great news to share. Isaiah had a very rough night. We were up every hour or so. His fever went to over 103. With Motrin he was able to sleep. He woke up this morning weak and tired. With no food entering his system since Sunday night, his strength did not last long. As the morning wore on, his fever began to climb again. Reaching the 103 mark quickly. Thankfully, the motrin broke the fever and he seemed a little more like himself…even asking for McDonalds! Around 4 this afternoon he began to show signs of tiredness. Within an hour his fever was 104.3. Mortin and Tylenol are proving to be wonderful as they relieve his weakness and bring life back to him. Today has been a day of pushing fluids and battling dehydration. He revives at times I think he is on the mend. It is like a roller coaster, though.
We are heading to bed very soon, hoping to get a couple hours of sleep tonight. I can not thank you all enough for your prayers and simple words of encouragement. Please continue to pray for Isaiah, that his body would find strength to fight whatever is causing the fever. Pray for Heath who is somehow functioning on almost two nights of very little sleep. And please pray for wisdom as we seek to do what is best for Isaiah.
