Luke has pnuemonia again and he could really use your prayers

Luke has pneumonia again:/ I'm extremely thankful that he stayed healthy for the most part while were gone on our cruise. Natalie, Amy and Yoli all said that he did good except for the fact that he was really "junky" most days. Sunday night was a gift from God, Luke had a great night, but by the next day I knew he was just not his normal self, by Monday night he was doing horrible. There were a few times that I was terrified, he kept desatting and then had an episode that was absolutely horrible, not sure what that was about, but think it might of been a seizure because of his oxygen deprivation. If he ever has another one of those episodes I will definitely get that checked into.

I took him into his pediatrician yesterday and after x-rays it was determined that Luke still has pneumonia and his atelectasis, which is his collapsed lung is not doing any better. It really is amazing and God's goodness that he didn't have more problems while we were gone. He got another painful shot of antibiotics and was put on a strong antibiotic, had some blood work done, needless to say it was a 2+ hour Dr. visit. Last night he did a little better but is still not doing good at all. All that to say is that Luke could use some prayers today and so could I, sleep deprivation is not a good thing. Too bad I couldn't take some the extra hours of sleep that I got on the cruise and use them now:/

Love in Christ,
Luke's Mommy Suzi

PS I will try really hard to get some pictures up from our cruise, it was absolutely amazing, a true gift from GOD!
