GLORY TO GOD!

Witt is doing great! Just being able to say that brings me to my knees thanking God and yet makes me want to stand and praise Him. Maybe I have a little better understanding of the song "I Can Only Imagine."
"Surrounded by Your Glory, what will my heart feel?Will I dance for you, Jesus? Or in awe of You, be still?Will I stand in Your presence, or to my knees will I fall?Will I sing 'Hallelujah!'? Will I be able to speak at all?I can only imagine! I can only imagine!"

I still can really only imagine face to face, unveiled seeing Christ but right now all at once I am dancing before Him and bowing down worshipping Him! Witt is almost tube/line free. The catheter has been removed the center drain tube, the artery line, and the pacing wire are all gone! He still has two drains and the PIC line but that's it. He is on oxygen but his Osat stays at 100. Witt's respiratory rate is staying in the normal range which in the past would be real low for Witt!! I just find myself sitting here smiling and fighting back the tears of joy!!! The next step will hopefully be moving to a room on 15. For now I am thanking God for the CVICU...the doctors, the nurses, all the staff!
Raise your hand if you feel better!

The prayer warriors at Anchor of Hope Church in Belton, Tx. and I, Nella, are praising the Lord for this wonderful news. Witt has captured our hearts, and although we have not met Witt, nor the family, we are rejoicing with you. God has great plans for Witt.
God bless you "Little Witt" and all the family. What an awesome God we serve.
