Romans 8:26-27: In the same way the Spirit also helps our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groaning too deep for words; and He who searches the hearts know what the mind of the Spirit is, because he intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.

Today Witt had a follow up appointment with the cardiologist. We did not get bad news and in fact there is no fluid around his heart, it just once again makes me realize how glad I am that God is in control and I am not! I praise the One Who is Sovereign, Who has all wisdom and knowledge and I gladly bend my knees to Him! We were told that even though Witt's lungs sound clear, the x-ray still shows them to be a little wet and Witt is still on a very small amount of oxygen. We have known that Witt has a small leaky valve and that remains. The cardiologists are putting him on medication to help the leaky valve to make sure this is not the reason why his lungs are at this point a little wet and he is still on oxygen. Its here that I would normally ask everyone to join me in a very specific prayer but I am not sure what would be best for Witt! It actually might be best if the valve were causing the lungs to be a little wet and the medication would take care of it, it might be that he is still just getting over the virus or it might be something more with the lungs that we need to check into...I don't know! God knows and the Holy Spirit intercedes for us! I would ask you each to join me in praying that the utmost glory is given to God by doing His best for Witt! Witt will start his new medication tomorrow and will return to the cardiologist in 2 weeks. In the meantime, I do pray we are able to take him off his oxygen but I am at total peace knowing that God is in control...Karen

Karen, thank you for including this scripture with your update. Sometimes I don't feel like I'm asking God for what Witt and y'all need in the right words. I'm not worried now because He does know what my heart wants to say and my mind can't. I will pray tonight just like you asked-only for His will. Thank you, Debbie

Hey, guys--it sounds like Witt is in very good hands with his cardiologist; clearly, God was at work choosing him, too! Take each day at a time and trust in the great power that is God. He is good, His mercy is great and His plan for this precious life is perfect. Love you--Cadou

I haven't commented in quite a while, but have been following the blog and checking in, and of course, praying for Witt. I am joining with you in praying that "the utmost glory is given to God by doing His best for Witt". Blessings!
