Joshua is still with us. I guess he thought that since he'd defied the odds thus far, he had to go out in a blaze of glory.
It's been 19 hours since his cele ruptured and emptied. He's had countless small seizures and has stopped eating/swallowing.
But he's still here. We thought it was all over yesterday when these pictures were taken. But instead he stayed with us. We stayed up till 1am when exhaustion got the better of us.
He slept between us in our bed and we woke up a number of times to touch him and check his breathing. His breathing changes a lot, but his heartbeat is strong and consistant.
His face looks different now because his skin's not pulled so tight. Our camera is getting a lot of use. These pictures were taken by our nurse Heather on the Olympus that was sent to us. Our Canon still has to be set up for download, so we'll post more as we go. I'm so proud of him - he's definitely strong and courageous.
We don't know what's next. Seriously, this was unforseen - that he'd last so long. We thought he'd go within an hour or two. But 19 hours later...
Please pray for us as we continue to hold him and kiss him. Thank you for all your prayers.
