Friday Afternoon Update

Here is the latest on Lindsay:

1. The lung test showed no infection. They believe it is just mucous and did a saline flush. They are going to put her on a larger breathing machine to help with the lungs.

2. They were able to put in an additional line, which could have been risky with the bleeding issues.

3. They are planning to take the chest tubes out which will further help keep the chest area undisturbed.

4. They did an echo cardiogram of the heart and we hope to get the results later on today.

5. They are planning to back ECMO back next week to see what her heart can do.

This is all cool. Keep praying about the infection.

It is very encouraging to hear all the good news. I live in Colorado and was plugged into this blog by Babe Callam, who is a very dear friend. Lindsay is being prayed for in Colorado, and in Azerbaijan and Iceland where my daughters are living at the moment. This is an international prayer meeting. May God be praised.

That sure sounds encouraging...What a wonderful God we serve. I truly hope that all this good news boost some morale around Boston Childrens Hopital. Still praying along with all the others for healing of Lindsay, and peace, patience and rest for all of you there. Love Uncle Bill and Aunt Carol K.

We're so encouraged by Lindsay's progress today!

There is a quote from C.S. Lewis that I love... "Miracles are the retelling in small letters of the very same story which is written across the whole world in letters too big for some of us to see."

We're still praying for that "big miracle", but we recognize that even these little improvements in Lindsay's condition have the fingerprints of God all over them!

Hugs to all of you,
Jenny, Josh & Samuel

Continuing to pray for Lindsay'a miracle. God is at work on His schedule so I guess we all are learning to be patient.

Praying that every little bit of good news is a big WOW to the wonderful Drs. and staff that God is using to care for her.

Thank you Bill for the regular updates.

Love, hugs & prayers, Miriam

We will be praying for Lindsay to adjust to the bigger breathing machine, for the infection to go away, for her doctors and staff to see God helping them as they treat Lindsay, and for the Groen and the Welte families as they continue to minister to Lindsay and those around her. Thank you God for showing us big and small miracles. We praise you Lord!

Bill & Jan: Bill you are so right, I don't think there was a dry eye in the house Thursday morning. It was such a blessed and special time to hear the update on Lindsay.

Who would have ever thought that an 18 month old would be such an encouragement to so many.

I will continue to pray for a miracle.

God is so good.

Thank You again for the updates.
