Witt will remain on the ventilator. His lungs just aren't quite ready. He probably could come off tomorrow afternoon but by then there would be no need. I said before that I was trusting God to do what is best for Witt's lungs. It's not a decision I necessarily like but I find peace in it! Witt is second in line for the procedure on Thursday. The doctor said it could last anywhere from 2-4 hours. In the meantime please pray for Witt. Pray that he remain calm on the ventilator and can be minimally sedated. Pray that Witt feels Christs arms around him in a real tangible way! Pray also for Melanie...that she realize that in the absence of her being able to hold Witt that Christ Himself is holding him!
I have another prayer request for a very nice family we have met in the "recliners." Their boy's name is Connor Konz. He is 17 years old. A couple of weeks ago he got pneumonia and had to go on a ventilator. He is still on the ventilator. He is however making small steps in the right direction but this family is also walking in faith in a world of unknowns trusting that God knows all! The immediate prayer request from the family is to figure out why Connor's urine has a little blood in it. The doctors are doing tests. Connor is completely sedated. I can somewhat imagine what that must feel like for the family but Witt has only been on the vent for a couple of days. Undoubtedly, God is here. I pray that other families in the "recliners" will come to depend upon God just as this family does!
Please, also pray for Zoey...I don't even have any other details than the name but our God has it all. A young man just came into the recliner room crying. I simply asked for the name and that we would be praying. There are so many hurting families here...so many lives for God to take over!!!
