Foard update (Tuesday)


Melissa had a good conversation with the doctor today, with a friend translating so everything was clear. Big picture:

  • The latest round of blood work indicates the meds are working; the infection is getting better. (Or going away, or whatever an infection does.)
  • Although his skin isn’t much better, they told us that it could be 1-2 weeks before it’s back to normal. Obviously we hope it’s quicker, but that helps us to have reasonable expectations.
  • They will move him out of the ICU tomorrow and into a room with Melissa. Then they will probably get to come home Friday.
  • We talked with a third pediatrician today who also agreed with the diagnosis and treatment. This really helps our confidence that he’s getting good care here.

Our team & church friends here are taking good care of us. Thanks to everybody all over the world who is praying. Keep it up!

  1. So glad to hear that Foard is getting better. Sounds like you have a great team of support there! Praying for you…for real. 🙂

  2. Thanks for doing such a fine job of keeping all of us in the loop. That's almost as good as the peace of mind we have, knowing who's really in charge here.

  3. The Columbia, South Carolina world is covered!!

  4. Bless his little heart. Poor guy. Does the hospital not have an interpreter available to you?
