Prayers for Arthur

Arthur, Sweet Arthur needs all the prayers he can get right now. Over the last thirty days Arthur has been in and out of the hospital. The times he's been in the hospital he's had a fever and a virus which the Doctors are trying to treat. He also has a low white blood count they are trying to raise.

Brie and Arthur were admitted to Legacy on Thursday. Friday Arthur became very ill. He started vomiting and having diarrhea simultaneously. His blood pressure dropped and he was having trouble breathing. Around 6:00 PM he was rushed into ICU. On Saturday around noon Arthur was moved back to his room, still on oxygen.

Arthur is doing better and the Doctor's still don't know what caused this. Some speculated that the many different antibiotics he has been on may have caused this reaction, but he is still not out of the woods. They are still keeping a close eye on out sweet baby boy. Please know the family still needs your support and prayers.

Up Date on Arthur

Hi I wanted to let every one know about Arthur's new location for care and his condition at this time.
Arthur is now going to Legacy Emanuel Children's Hospital in Portland Oregon. The last time Arthur received chemo was 30 days ago. Most of the time Arthur is scheduled to receive chemo every two weeks. At this time the Doctors are waiting as his blood counts have been to low to start any new chemo. He was taken to Emanuel today with a fever. Most likely he will be coming home tomorrow as he is still not well enough to receive treatment. Arthur has been through so much pain with the treatments non stop digestive problems and his struggle to gain weight and strength. Not a night has gone by in 7 months, that the family hasn't had to get up with Arthur to attend to Arthur's pain and multiple diaper changes.This is just a glimpse of the struggles the family faces every day. They know that with out all the wonderful support they would not be able to provide the care their sweet little Arthur's needs.
Thank you for keeping Arthur and family close in prayer, as always staying strong in the healing power of prayer, Arthur and Family
