What a week it has been. If you read my previous post you know that we were given some very unfortunate news last Wednesday. News that Joshua's heart is rapidly failing him. The doctors weren't sure how to treat his failing heart since there was no clear reason for the digression. We took Joshua back to Dr. Rivera today to have a follow up echo, we had been praying for some encouraging news. After taking a careful look at Josh's heart & comparing today's findings to the echo Josh had about a month ago, Dr. Rivera said that his function has actually slightly improved! Remember, on Wednesday we were told that his function had significantly decreased in a matter of weeks. We feel so blessed, so much relief, so much gratitude, so much happiness...so much better!
His function is by no means great, but to hear that is isn't quickly deteriorating like they thought is nothing short of a miracle.
I know that many, many prayers were said on our behalf & many people fasted for Joshua. We are so thankful to all of you. I know that Heavenly Father heard us & we are so humbled that He answered our prayers in this way.
Joshua has a long way to go before his heart will be in good shape, but he is slowly headed in the right direction. We'll be visiting Dr. Rivera more regularly, and he'll most likely tweak around his meds every now and then. But it's nothing we can't handle. :)
