Philip’s condition continues to be precarious. He now has an infection in his blood, which is referred to as sepsis. They don’t know where it has come from and they are still debating on how best to treat it. They also suspect he may have some GI bleeding . Having one of these 2 situations would be bad enough but having both of them at the same time is not good. He is currently on hold for transplant until the situations can be cleared up. The doctors are still giving Randy and Shelly hope but the situation is very grim. Randy is obviously exhausted by her almost 24/7 vigil at Philip’s bedside for almost 6 weeks now. They have been in Chapel Hill since before Thanksgiving. She remains optimistic but sad. The emotional roller coaster would takes its toll on anyone… but especially on a Mommy and the Daddy. Watching your child have to endure what Philip has endured just tears your heart out. No matter how hopeful you remain, the pain of sitting and watching your child suffer is oftentimes unbearable, as you can all well imagine. Randy has been the ultimate advocate for Philip and realizes that Phil is now totally in the hands of G-d, along with some assistance from some outstanding, extraordinary, skillful and compassionate health care givers. Please keep them all in your prayers.
