STILL ON VENTILATOR

Lord Jesus...just absolutely invade us with Your strength! Witt is still on the ventilator and is sedated. He looks as beautiful as ever but there is also a pain that runs deeper than any pain I have experienced. To see him on the ventilator hurts deeply. It doesn't affect my faith and trust in God. My faith is not relative to the level of pain here on earth. I find that my dependence on my Savior grows as the pain goes deeper. Witt will remain on the ventilator at least until the doctors come to a decision (and Austan and Mel agree with them) about the timing of the cardiac cath test. This test which was not going to take place until late July or August will most likely take place this week. If it's scheduled within the next couple of days Witt will probably remain on the ventilator. If it's later in the week they may try to take him off it. Tomorrow a decision should be made. I'm not even sure what to ask God for...what decisions should be made so I kneel at the throne of grace where the God of all Truth sits. I ask God to pour out wisdom on the doctors. I carry Witt there with me and leave him in the very lap of God asking God to not let one thing be done out of His perfect timing to His glory!

Praying for PEACE! Praying that God guides everyone through this and that His will is obvious. May every step we take and every breath we draw bring Glory to God in a bold and mighty way. And, please, sweet Father, may Austan and Mel feel the PEACE that only YOU can provide!

Karen, there is nothing I can add that you didn't say perfectly. I can and will pray that God's holy presence fills Witt's room and that He will guide M & A through all decisions.

Thinking of you all - especially little Witt. Our little boy Charlie has a major congenital heart defect, and has already had two open-heart surgeries, with a third still to come, so we can understand a little of what you are all going through right now. Keeping you all in our thoughts and prayers. With love from across the pond xxx

May God continue to hold Witt in his hands. I know how you must feel to see him on the ventilator. You are all in my prayers.

Praying and trusting God. We lift all of you and ask God to give you peace and comfort. God has Witt wrapped tightly in His loving arms.
May everyone see the power of God through every circumstance.
We love you.
