Witt's cardiac cath procedure has been scheduled for sometime Thursday! The doctors are going to try to take him off the ventilator tonight. The cardiologist said his lungs are little stiff right now so they might not be able to. If that's the case Witt will just stay on the ventilator till sometime after the cardiac procedure. No matter what, Thursday's procedure will require Witt to be under a general anesthetic and intubated. Before he leaves the hospital the pediatric surgeon will also place the "button" on his feeding tube. Wow...what a week but WOW what a God! God has no calender or needs no daytimer. Everything has been on God's schedule already. Please pray that whatever is best for Witt's lungs takes place tonight. I believe it would be best for him to come off the vent but his lungs may just need the help and rest still. Looks like we will be in the recliners at night for a while. I will tell you ,though, I have met, prayed with and prayed for many people in that recliner waiting room. As I said...WOW what a God! I have always wanted to go on a mission trip. I just didn't know it would involve camping in recliners!!

Holding Witt close in prayer, praying for healing rest, easy breaths, painfree smiles. So many are kneeling with you as you wait. I hope that you somehow feel each of our prayers.

I learned from a music minister's wife one time what a mission field can be: She was saying that she felt guilty for not being able to go to Africa on a mission trip, when she felt a tug at her skirt. She looked down into the faces of her 3 preschoolers and realized that her LAP was her current mission field! So it makes sense that recliners are mission fields, too!
