Samuel Update

Cousin Camp is officially over. The two sisters and thier groups left this morning at 9am.

Now that they are gone, I am going to unofficially credit them for bringing an Arkansas bug into Kentucky. ;-0

David, Mary Kathryn, Lily and I spent the afternoon in the pediatric ward of Central Baptist Hospital in Lexington.

You can see from the picture that Samuel appears to be doing well. They are putting two pretty major antibiotics through that IV. That's a little gauze wrapped cast on his arm to keep him from messing with the IV connection. Note also the little bandage around his neck covering the still-draining wound. The now bursted, still draining cyst/boil/whatever it is/was looks pretty bad. A pediatric nurse named Laurel provided excellent care for us through the night and day. We had some interesting conversations as she graduated some years ago with a ThM from Harvard Divinity School.

So Samuel's condition is stable but guarded. They are really laboring to stay on top of this infection, ridding it from his little body (17 pounds). He's little but quite a little ball of energy.

Thank you for your continued prayers on his and our behalf. He and Tiffani are staying tonight and tomorrow and we will evaluate from there with the Dr.'s on what next.
