Hezekiah is continuing to be a source of joy in our home. We love caring for him and having him at home with us as a family. He is always being held by someone and at times we are all wanting him at the same time.
Hezekiah physically is starting to show signs that he will soon meet our maker. There is no defined time period it will just happen over a period of time which has already been ordained by God. He does not have an infection on his head. We took him to our wonderful Pediatrician today Dr. S and she said the "gook" is his body trying to "fix" his head which obviously cannot happen. She also very thoroughly explained the process of what is yet to come. Being with her reconfirmed to me that God knew exactly what he was doing 13 years ago when I first met her with our 1st arrow. I only regret forgetting our camera to take a picture of her with him. It touched my heart that she wanted to hold him and did. Her genuine love was apparent.
Hezekiah is not eating much at all, he is sleeping contently most of the time and is in no apparent pain.
We are just going to continue caring for him and pray for God's strength. I cannot even explain to you how hard it is to sit and watch our son slowly get weaker and weaker. It is a helpless feeling that I so desire to fix but cannot. I often think this is more than I can handle, well not think I KNOW it is more than I can handle. God has a plan and we continue to cling to his promises.
Please continue to pray for us. Pray for Hezekiah that he suffers no pain and passes quickly and safely into the arms of his creator. We appreciate all the support of love from those we know and those we don't. Prayer is an amazing thing and this situation has confirmed that to us even more.
