Last Wednesday (Jan. 10, 2018), Josh came down with a bad sinus infection. He had really bad headaches and was in bed with a lot of pain. The pain in his head continued to increase, and on Jan. 17th Josh began throwing up. On the morning of the 18th, Josh was not responding well to his brother, Zach, and mom. They carried him to the car and took him to the ER. Within 45 min., the staff noticed a change in his pupils. They rushed him to emergency brain surgery. His brain was swelling and they knew they had to open his skull to save his life. The surgery took two hours as the doctors removed a large piece of bone from his skull to relieve the pressure. They cleaned out the infection from his brain and left the bone off so that his brain can heal from the swelling. He is taking a lot of antibiotics to fight the infection that has spread to his blood and brain. He is currently on a respirator, so that the medical staff can regulate his breathing. He is sedated, so that he stays comfortable and still. Josh has responded to family member's voices by squeezing their hands. He can only move the left side of his body at this time. Please continue praying for complete healing. Pray that his brain swelling and infection dissipates. Pray that there is no brain injury from the infection. Pray for the Miller family as they walk through this difficult time with Josh.
