Yesterday, Christian was re-admitted to Texas Children's Hospital. He began a 5 day course of IV Steroids and thankfully is responding to the steroid therapy. He is expected to go home within the 5 day time period. This is the good news!
Christian is experiencing an inflamation flare up on his spinal cord. This is uncommon, but the fact it is happening is an indication he will likely continue to have similiar flare ups in the future. This is extremely rare and very disappointing. X-rays indicate his spine has begun to twist due to muscle spasms in his trunk. Today, Jack and Danielle were also informed Christian has a condition called Chiari 1 malformation. This is a condition in which brain tissue protrudes into the spinal canal.
As you can imagine, this is alot to absorb. Please pray for Jack and Danielle to experience God's peace and that God will grant them strength and endurance for each day. Continue to pray for God's miraculous healing hands to touch Christian's body and restore his health.
