Today is sort of a holding day waiting for the procedure tomorrow. The best possible guess for timing is late morning. Since Witt remains on the ventilator he is also kept still with sedation. When it wears off he tries really hard with his tongue to get that tube out! His hands are loosely tied so he won't grab it. The doctors actually just ordered a continuous drip sedation. Witt will also be fed today. Melanie was wondering last night because he hasn't eaten since the very early hours of Monday morning! Melanie is resting now. Please pray for both Mel and Austan that they not only get physical rest today but also emotional rest. Tomorrow's test will reveal a lot about Witt's heart and lungs. I am asking God to heal Witt. I started to say that I will be praying that nonstop but I heard God tell me to leave it with Him! So one last time I kneel at the altar of God and leave my request there with Him and His peace which surpasses all understanding will guard my mind and my heart!
