VENTILATOR TEST

Witt passed his first "test" for getting off the ventilator. It is turned back on but with even lower settings. They have given him steroids for some swelling in his throat because of the tube. Around 4am tomorrow morning they will "test" his breathing again then hopefully the tube will come out a little later! I really I am not the least bit objective but he is the sweetest thing I have ever seen. Right now blood is being squeezed out of his heel and he is just sucking away on his pacifier even with his breathing tube in!

Praise God! This is great news! I have been praying that God would take any pain away from our little guy and help him rest. I will continue to pray for strength to breath without struggle. I love you all!

I still check the blog regularly (usually every day) and let the La Grange folks know when extra prayers are in order. Witt is darling and I pray for a speedy recovery and peace for all the family this Christmas.

I can't wait to see Witt and am praying for a great report at 4 a.m. tomorrow. Thanks for the updates.
