AN ATIVAN-LESS NIGHT!

Yesterday Witt's ativan was stopped. This is a good thing but it made for a hard night. Witt was a little cranky and did not sleep much. However this morning he is sleeping and Melanie is resting in the recliner.

Not much action to this video but there is nothing sweeter!

Witt is breathing well and his "numbers" are all good! The issue still is his need for diuretics. As I prayed this morning, I asked God Himself to intervene. I asked God to everyday of Witt's life to miraculously pull any extra fluid from Witt's body. Wouldn't it rock the medical world if Witt didn't even need any diuretic!

Today my soul has felt burdened and sad. Not because of Witt but because of what has been happening in the recliner room. Yesterday 2 families came in. One family was sad but joked with us a lot. Sometime in the middle of the night their baby passed away. The other family's baby is 2 months old. She was found at her daycare with her heart stopped. She is still on life support and having many seizures. Please pray for these families...pray that He is their Strength, their Hope, their Comforter. As for me...today God had me read Psalm 3:3-4:

"But thou, O Lord, art a Shield for me; my Glory and the Lifter of Mine Head. I cried unto the Lord with my voice, and He heard me out of His holy hill".

He never lets me hang my head low...He is truly the Lifter of My Head and He restores my soul!!

love the video - I say there's nothing sweeter than a sleeping baby, breathing deeply and easily!
Except, of course, for that same baby when he wakes up and smiles!

I just love Witt's little face, awake or asleep. His personality continues to shine. Prayers for the families you mentioned. ~Mindy

So good to see Witt progressing in God's perfect time.
So sad to read about the other families...in fact, it breaks my heart. I will add them to my prayers tonight.
