Witt and Melanie are both resting well. Witt is back on the road to recovery, we just don't know how long it will take. The big discussion today with one of the doctors was whether or not this was still the same virus or actually some new virus. I believe the conclusion was that he just wasn't totally over the original virus and nothing new. He continues to require very little oxygen but he really needs that small amount to keep his oxygen saturation up. Today I was reminded that I am to love the Lord, my God, with all my heart, my soul, my mind and my strength. God is to always be my focus and my strength, my energy is to be spent loving Him even(and maybe especially!) while Witt is in the hospital. It's so easy to lose focus and spend all my strength thinking about the situation when the only true way to never run out of strength is for Him to be my focus. Today I praise God for always being in control, I praise God for a hospital like Texas Children's, I praise God that He has never been easier to "find" than here in Witt's room!
