Weekend Update

Josh is doing ok. He is having intestinal issues and really bad sweats. The doctors are investigating. The surgeons are planning on performing surgery to remove the IVC filter and feeding tube from Josh on Monday. In order for him to have surgery, the doctors plan on moving him to Bethesda until Wednesday.

While Josh is in Bethesda, the orthopedic doctor will assess Josh’s left hand. He will also see neurology. Finally, Josh is “planning” on receiving his purple heart. This is the second time that we have “planned” to receive it, but we are confident that it will take place this time. Today, Josh was presented with a Macbook from the VFW! I know he is ecstatic about that.
