Friday Night Update

We are in need of everyone to start praying for a few things:

A doctor came in this evening with some news that wasn't very good. At this point I will not tell what exactly it is, as we are hoping that they can call Dr. Mayer and see what he has to say on things. So please be in prayer for some clarity this evening before they head out for the night. We are just wondering how we went from things going so well to things not looking so good.

Also if you could start praying for their housing situation. At this point they have to be out of the DevonNicole House until June.

Keep praying and will update when we have more information

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.

Mid-Morning Update

God is answering your prayers.

1. They will be doing the lung test shortly, so please pray that they will be able to figure out why the left lung is not working properly.

2. Dr. Mayer stated again today that if they can get the infection cleared up, it opens up numerous options.

3. Laura and Jan had opportunity to share with one of her doctors about the answer to your prayers about the bleeding stopping last night. He asked them to get on the blog the need to put in another line today. That was cool. We are smiling that the doctors and nurses are asking us to put stuff on the blog! Yeah, God!

On Wednesday night Jan texted me a verse the Lord had given her several weeks ago: "Though it tarries, wait for it ..." Habakuk 2:3. I smiled this morning ... When I opened "My Utmost for His Highest" -- guess what the verse was for today? Coincidence? You will have to decide.

Friday Morning Update

Here is some news to bless your heart. We posted the Urgent Prayer Request re: the bleeding at 10:09 PM last night. God answered your prayers! The bleeding stopped.

The night nurse said that it was amazing that at 10:00 PM the bleeding stopped! Praise the Lord.

"It shall come to pass That before they call, I will answer; And while they are still speaking, I will hear." Isaiah 65:24

"Call to ME and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things ..." Jeremiah 33:3

My son-in-law, Garrett, asked me to look up the word miracle. Here is the dictionary definition: an effect or extraordinary event in the physical world that surpasses all known human or natural powers and is ascribed to a supernatural cause.

Thank you for praying that God will wow and amaze the doctors with what HE, and HE alone can do.

Thanks for posting your comments on the blog.
