Please pray...pray for God's perfect details for Witt to unfold!! Now the doctors are not sure that the tube can be removed today. Witt's lung xray looks a little worse today and he has a lot of secretion both of which make them weary of extubating. They just removed his chest tube and want to give him an hour to rest before trying another pressure support trial. If he does well with the trial I believe they will try to remove the tube this afternoon but we wont know for sure till closer to time. It feels like the opportunity was missed by not extubating yesterday. That said, I have to trust and stay in God's peace. I know that God has a plan for Witt and that God is sovereign. The best example of what I am thinking is from my own life. I have made choices that I guarantee were out of God's will. There are "details" in my life that I know God would have wanted to be different but He allowed my free will and wove those choices into His plan for me...otherwise I would have always remained out of His plans. My heart aches that I didn't live out every detail in His perfect will yet I praise Him that He would never allow me to remain there! What I am asking for Witt is that all the choices being made for him are the very detailed choices that God desires...that God trumps any free will of others right now concerning Witt!!! I am asking God to take over in every tiny way!!! And I am asking for God to fill us with a peace that He is in control!!
It has been stated now that Witt will have the surgery to remove the sac on Monday. He doesn't have a time slot yet but they believe it will be then. Once again I beg God to take over all decisions!

Still praying for God's will and PEACE!!! I pray that you can actually FEEL His tangible touch as He carries you through this.

I love you all!

I don't pretend to know the mind of God, but what I know for sure is that His grace is covering Witt every moment of the day. Rest in that promise. Love, Cadou

I believe that some of the caution the doctors are using, and the seemingly slow timing and appearance of lack of progress IS God's answer and perfect timing for now. Rest in that, and do not become frustrated when it SEEMS that things are not going the way they should. -Ashley
