Update

Time for a quick update...
I took Josh in for a routine exam on Monday and we learned that he isn't doing so great. He has excess fluid which leads to some issues. His heart function is slightly depressed, his liver is enlarged and his lungs had a little fluid in them too. So Josh was admitted on the spot. He's been on IV Lasix for the past few days and he's starting to look better. His liver is still enlarged but its softer today, so that a good thing.
He's been in really good spirits and so overall it hasn't been bad being held up in the hospital. He did great getting his IV placed, didn't even cry, but he's not a fan of waking up each morning to blood draws. But really, we can't complain. We are being well taken care of and he should be back to his old self pretty soon!
Hoping tomorrow or Friday we'll be back to the comforts of our own home. :)
