Big Steps

Bryce had an exceptionally good day yesterday followed by an excellent night and is well on his way to another great day! We couldn't be happier with how well he is doing and like Tiare, his nurse last night, said - who ever is praying, how ever they are praying, make sure they don't stop!

More good news is that they have now stopped all antibiotics as all cultures have come back negative. This is great news because it means that Bryce's little kidneys can get a break from processing all of that. His blood pressures are still good, they are weaning his nitric oxide, he's oxygen is still low and he's back to the active little guy we remember from a week ago.

We'll probably have to go back to neuro for another shunt to be placed in the coming week to ten days but we'll cross that bridge when we get to it. For now we're content to enjoy these good days and restock our hope for the days ahead.

We'll be sure to keep you posted as things continue throughout the day and this weekend - thanks for thinking of us continually, praying for us daily and loving us always!


  1. I can't tell you how happy it makes my heart to hear that he is having good days! Those are the days you hold onto on this crazy experience! The good days are SO good! I hope these good days continue and he is able to grow bigger and stronger everyday! Definitely still praying every day!

  2. Wonderful!! I'm so excited for all of you. Maybe, if I continue to pickup stranded motorists and give them a ride home we can continue to add churches to our prayer chain. lol. Everyone has your family and of course Little Bryce on their minds, in their hearts and in their prayers constantly.
    Keep up the good work, cowboy, and have a happy, relaxed weekend with your mama, daddy,and all of your loving grandparents.
