Lucas Is Sick & Admitted to the Hospital

Overnight, Lucas was admitted to Phoenix Children’s Hospital. He came in with a fever at 102.7, chest congestion, coughing, runny nose, & the biggest issue is his oxygen level was at 88%. Now, Lucas is on nasal cannula oxygen which is bringing him up to 96%. The 1st round of labs show a viral infection with possible pneumonia. Waiting for a 2nd round xray review by the day time radiologist to confirm pneumonia.

The night on call immune deficiency doctor from Boston Children’s Hospital called PCH when we arrived at 11:30pm on Saturday evening. Boston’s doctor told Phoenix what labs & imaging needed to be performed. Plus Boston told Phoenix what medicines Lucas should be started on. Basically, Boston is taking the lead with managing Lucas’ care.

Please say a prayer that Lucas quickly beats this & starts to feel better. Never easy watching your little one be sick in a hospital.

  1. I AM SO SORRY TO HEAR ABOUT LUCAS, I PRAY HE FEELS BETTER REAL SOON. I HATE HEARING THAT HE IS NOT HIS PLAYFUL, HAPPY SELF. LOVE YOU ALL….GIVE LUCAS A KISS/HUG FOR ME. 😦

  2. I am so sorry to hear this frightening news. It is never easy to watch and hope and pray for a little one. We are certainly praying for Lucas and your family. When you mentioned the song “Thy Will”, I have not heard it. but it brought to my mind the “Our Father” and the phrase” …”Thy will be done”… God will be watching over Lucas and I will be praying the Our Father for him.

    • The song is based around the Bible phrase of “thy will be done” We know Jesus Christ is watching over Lucas and keeping him safe.
