Updating on baby josh’s progress

So I have a further progress update on how baby Josh is doing.

Some of his tests came back, and it wasn’t good news.

He was born without the glands that produce hormones, this is going to obviously cause him huge issues. The doctors put him on medication, and he’ll be on it for life.

Without this medication, he wouldn’t produce any hormones, so he wouldn’t grow.

They still don’t know if he’s deaf, or blind. But they do know that his level of downs syndrome is the most severe one that there is.

Its all so sad. One positive is that he’s feeding better now. He’s taking a few ounces at a time now. It exhausts him, just the action of sucking the bottle. But he’s doing it and that’s really positive.

He’s a little fighter. Please continue to keep him in your thoughts and prayers, there is still a very long road ahead for him and his parents.

  1. Do the doctors know what caused all of his health issues? That truly is a very tough challenge life has thrown at them. But still, everything is possible, and improvement can happen when he grows. So many miracles have happened and I am sure, the little fellow is in all our hearts which boosts him with life’s energy. Much love to all of you 💖
