update on David: today, the team began trials to see if David could breathe on his own. The good news is he DID for 40 minutes. The opportunity to pray is that after the positive pressure was removed from the vent, David became EXTREMELY anxious and freaked out. He thought he was drowning. It is very hard to cough around a jumbo straw in your lungs. Although, the doctor was assuring he had an adequate cough, David got scared. Please pray tomorrow he does better and can come off the Vent!
Scott (13) and Kyle (9) update: the cardiology team working with David wanted to test the boys. Today, both had an echocardiogram and both have healthy hearts! You can not believe our excitement.
Opportunity to support the family:
1. Prayer. We are living on prayers. God is continually supplying David with all he needs to get better. The LVAD is almost a week old. Can you believe that technology has came this far? His heart is bionic now! We can’t praise God enough for the team that has taken care of David and their timely wisdom.
2. Please write David. Life in room 1 can get very Monotonous. The days run together. He loves us to read the cards and letters to him. So keep them coming!
3. Please consider to financially support the family. You can use this website to make a contribution. The family is being sustained by everyone’s loving kindness. Please consider giving. This is going to be a long road. We want to thank everyone who has given.
The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him.
