Monday Update on Joy

Thank you so much for all of your prayers and thoughtful words. Joy’s status right now is still serious, but not deteriorating. Her chest x-ray last night showed no change, but that also means it is not getting worse. Her pulmonologist said her breathing sounds better this morning. At this point a ventilator is not being discussed; however Joy is still on oxygen all the time. She spiked a fever of 102 and is now on 5-days of antibiotics to get ahead of whatever else is brewing. She is sleeping better and eating some. Also, Mom’s sister, Debbie, flew in yesterday so Mom has some extra support. Please continue to pray. I’ll let you know more when I know it. Thank you!
