morebeto I've never experienced my mind racing like it has in the last couple weeks. It's keeping me up at night. How do you go from worrying about someone 24/7 to not being able to hold/care for him at all? I know the pain won't go away, but the process of learning to live with pain is no fun. I miss you like crazy, buddy. #beatsforbeckham 1w

morebeto Beckham took a very peaceful nap for three hours yesterday afternoon. When he woke up he struggled as usual, but we were hopeful that his nap was a good first step in getting better. We face-timed my parents for a bit which was really nice. A friend dropped dinner off around 7, and Beto was bouncing Beckham as I prepared our plates. Beto noticed that Beckham wasn't acting like himself. With slow and easy breaths Beckham passed away in our loving arms. We were home, and it was just the three of us. We are in shock and cannot comprehend it all. Our sweet boy. April 1st 2013, exactly 2 years ago and nearly to the minute, Beckham suffered his cardiac arrest. That day we should have lost him. While these two years have been filled with suffering, they have also been filled with an unexplainable joy in a little boy that forever changed our hearts. He made us better. He made us a family. We are beyond proud of his bravery, courage, fight for life, and his sweet, sweet spirit. In some ways we feel grateful his suffering is over, relieved we don't have to wait for the end anymore, but mostly broken hearted for all of our shattered dreams and the loss of the one we loved most. It's so surreal. We are grateful that it was peaceful, just the three of us, and at home. We were surrounded by family and friends last night. My family is on their way to us now. We are so thankful for the love and support you have given us each step of the way. #beatsforbeckham 4w

Beckham has been in my heart ever since that day. Your story has been so raw and real and has impacted me in ways that I never knew possible. I will be praying for grace and love to surround you during this tremendously difficult time. May the Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make His face shine upon you, and be gracious to you; may the Lord lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace. @morebeto @lindsey_joy 3w

morebeto Lindsey just posted a full update on the #beatsforbeckham Fb group about being discharged Monday and fighting a new battle with a horrible upset tummy due to the antibiotics the last couple of days. The pneumonia seems much better although Beckham is still coughing (his cough is different and is only reactionary rather than strong and intentional like ours would be) up secretions and sounding junky off and on. The main problem now is whatever pain he is in from the upset tummy. We have stopped his antibiotic and introduced probiotics to bring in some healthy gut bacteria. We also stopped his feeds and started pedialyte in hopes of letting his tummy rest. Beckham is back up on 10 liters of O2 here at home and his sats have been all over the place. He has been crying for days which is NOT like him. Due to his brain damage crying is not something we hear often from Beckham. To hear it around the clock, we know something is horribly wrong. This afternoon he had a complete pain-induced meltdown leaving him in the 30s and desperate. We gave him more morphine and he is now finally asleep, although a bit squirmy. Here's hoping that this episode will be over sooner than later and that his tummy really begins to heal. We are undoubtedly exhausted on every level. Thank you for your continued thoughts, prayers, and every good thing sent our way! 4w

morebeto FOURTY hours later and we finally think Beckham might be down for the count, fingers crossed!! Yesterday he managed about 2 hours worth of naps total, and we were in for another VERY LONG night. All of us are extremely exhausted and ready to go home. We think a big part of Beckham's issue relaxing to sleep is that we are here in the hospital. It doesn't look, smell, our sound like home so he just will not let himself fall asleep. We were able to continue to ween him down to 6 liters at 80% vapo therm which a so much better than 15 liters at 100%. So, even though he was fussy and grunting for hours upon hours he was stable in the 02 sats department. The next step will be to transition him from vapo therm to the wall. If he tolerates that step down we will be able to take him home. We feel like he needs to rest in order to get better, and home is the best possible place for that. We will be having a new oxygen concentrator delivered to our house that can go up to 10 liters, our current one only goes to 4. That way if he goes home on 6 we will have a little wiggle room. Beckham will also need to do a 10 day course of antibiotics. Our home nurse is on standby to work tonight, which means Beto and I might finally get some sleep. We are desperate for a hot shower, clean clothes, and our bed. We are beyond grateful for all of your love and support. This weekend has been a nightmare, but Beckham has shown us his fighting spirit once again. #beatsforbeckham 4w

morebeto Beckham had a pretty rough night, but things have been looking better this morning. He is just now (2pm) falling into a deep sleep; he has been awake since last evening at 8:30. He has been fighting sleep big time and has dozed off once or twice only to wake up a few minutes later. Dr. Koch came by around 11 and was glad to see Beckham holding his sats around 80 for most of the morning. He felt comfortable weening his 02 back to 12 liters 100%, still on Vapo Therm. If all goes well we will go down to 10 liters in a couple of hours. Things are still very up in the air, but it looks like Beckham is responding to his antibiotics. His sats and demeanor are proof of that today. I requested another Xray to compare to yesterday, which he just got. We are still waiting on the doctor to read the results, but from my untrained eye it looks clearer than yesterday!! We are all beyond exhausted and ready to go home, but we will stay here as long as it takes to safely take Beckham home. Dr. Koch feels more confident today that this is illness related rather than heart or lung failure. He also thinks that Beckham can get past this pneumonia. While he is not out of the woods yet (you know how quickly things can change around here!?), we feel far more hopeful than we did yesterday. We'll take a day filled with hope over a day filled with tears any day! I posted a more detailed on our #beatsforbeckham facebook group. 4w

morebeto THANK YOU for all of your love, thoughts, and prayers. We so appreciate you rallying around us once again. We need it! 
Beckham is really, really sick. He had a decent night and slept really good for the first time in a few days during the middle of the night. He did fine until about 7 this morning when he started to desat into the 60s for no reason. All morning Beckham was in the 50s-60s, his color was really dusky, and he was working really hard to breath. He desatted to the 40s and would not calm down. So we decided to give him some morphine to relax his breathing, which it definitely did. He got a really small dose, but it definitely relaxed him. After he fell asleep we went ahead and got another xray to check his lungs. His right lung looked worse than yesterday, but they aren't convinced that what we're seeing on the xray is secretions. It is definitely still a waiting game around here. Is it pneumonia? Is it something viral that needs to run its course? Is it lung disease and are we facing end of life? Right now Beckham's doctor says it's 50/50. We'll be staying another night to keep him comfortable on Vapo Therm and to see if the antibiotics help his lung clear up. We will reassess in the morning. We are exhausted, but we are trying to stay hopeful. Thankfully Beckham is resting well this afternoon. Full update on our #beatsforbeckham facebook group.

morebeto This is not at all how we expected to spend our morning. We are in the ER at Children's in Dallas after a day and a half of no sleep and worsening congestion for Beckham. His chest X-ray shows possible pneumonia. If you know anything about heart babies, pneumonia is life threatening (well, even a cold is life threatening so how much worse is pneumonia?!). Beckham's sats were in the 50's and he was grunting/coughing which sounded a lot like a goose honk when we got here. It was painful to watch. He is now on vapo therm which is a higher flow of warm, humid O2. A nasal swab came back negative for viral. We aren't sure where this came from -- as you know we've been crazy germaphobes these past couple of years. We do think this is more of an acute change that can be treated rather than a change in his heart condition. Our hope is that with some antibiotics and extra respiratory support Beckham will pull through. Our doctors and entire care team are lovingly realistic of the possibility that he may not. We will just have to wait and see what the next day or so holds. Right now we are waiting for a room in the cardiac ICU step-down unit. Dr. Koch (cook) is on call tonight, and seeing his face just now made us feel so much better. Having a team that knows and loves Beckham gives us loads more confidence. Please pray for Beckham's lungs to heal, his heart to not become overly stressed, and for him to rest comfortably. #beatsforbeckham 1mon
