Hudson Update

I just spoke to my Dad. Hudson is still on the ventilator, and Ashley and Andy have signed a “do not resuscitate” order. He has so many issues that everybody is at the point of wondering how much more to put him through. I believe Dad said the doctors are going to try a round of steroids in the next few days to see if that jumpstarts him somehow, but it’s really a last ditch effort.

I don’t clearly know all of the problems he has; I do know that he has scoliosis, malformed ribs that don’t allow his lungs to expand, he can’t swallow, and Dad said he has a stress ulcer. Poor sweet baby.

Thank you for all your prayers. I know that God is listening.

Oh Holly, this just makes my heart squeeze. How terrible for Hudson's parents to have to sign a DNR. I have signed one for my mother, but she is 88 -- a much different story. Poor tiny one. Prayers continue....

What a difficult thing for your family to be going through. Such a sweet, tiny baby dealing with so much. He is in my prayers. Deeply.
