DOCTOR'S MEETING

I will start this post with what I know....what the Voice of Truth is telling me: Our God is Mighty, He is Mighty to Save and Witt is already His miracle! The cardiologists wanted to talk to Melanie and Austan about the possibility of a heart transplant. The doctors pretty much agree(Dr. Morales with them) that replacing or repairing the mitral valve is not a possibility. It can be done but it would put Witt through a surgery that would most likely do no good. Right now Witt is not needing to be rushed into surgery but Witt walks a fine line between improving and needing a transplant. If Witt were to get worse or catch a virus, he might need immediate intervention for his heart. They wanted to present the possibility of a transplant for Melanie and Austan to consider...PLEASE, PLEASE pray for Melanie and Austan. Their walk as parents is unimaginable to most of us! Pray for wisdom, pray for God to reveal His plan for Witt to them. If they decide to choose the transplant then Witt and they will have to go through a process to just see if Witt qualifies. He would have many evaluations including neurological. All the information would be gathered and then goes to a board who make the final decision. The immediate plan is to get Witt home. They want to try to figure out his stomach issue and he needs to go about a week without needing medical intervention like more lasix, etc. SO, where are we? We are right in the grasp of our God Who loves Witt more than I can imagine. I am and will beg God to intervene. The doctors fully expect Witt's valve, heart and overall condition to deteriorate. I expect God!!!! I pray that God does the unexpected and shocks them. All my hopes and expectations are in Him...my peace and trust is in Who He is and His plan for Witt.

Wow! What a serious road they continue to walk. It is reassuring that God is walking every step with them. Our prayers continue for God's blessings to be showered on the Lupher family. I love you and continue to "Sing" with you!

MY HEART ACHES FOR ALL OF YOU AND I CRY AS I WRITE THIS. IT HAVE BEEN SUCH A HARD ROAD FOR ALL OF YOU. GOD IS STILL HEALING, GOD IS STILL IN CONTROL. HE WILL HAVE THE LAST SAY, HE WILL RULE OVER WITT'S LIFE. I FOUND MYSELF PRAYING THE OTHER DAY AND I HAVE SO MANY PETITIONS BEFORE GOD, ONE OF THEM BEEN WITT'S PRECIOUS LIFE. I WANTED TO ASK GOD TO PLEASE HEAL WITT, TO PERFORM ONE OF HIS MIRACLES, BUT I FIND MYSELF SAYING "YOUR WILL BE DONE ON EARTH AS IS IN HEAVEN". I'M NOT GIVING UP, I WILL STAND IN THE GAP FOR WITT, BUT MOST IMPORTANLY I WILL PRAISE GOD DISRIGARDING OF WHAT I HEAR, I WILL WAIT IN HIM. GOD IS GREAT NO MATTER WHAT THE SITUATION OR THE OUTCOME. HE ALLOWED ME TO HAVE MY PRECIOUS ONE FOR 13 YEARS, TO SEE HIM LIVE WELL BEYOND WAS HE WAS SUPPOSED TO. I ALWAYS THANK GOD FOR THE AMAZING HONOR HE BESTOWED UPON MY FAMILY, TO BE THE CAREGIVERS OF ONE OF HIS PRECIOUS ANGELS. WHAT AN HONOR TO BE CHOSEN TO BE WITT'S PARENTS AND FAMILY. I PRAISED GOD FOR ALL OF YOU. THANK YOU GOD FOR GIVING US WITT. IN PRAYER, LOVINGLY, MARTA.

Witt is such a fighter! I will pray that he and the family are able to continue this journey with improved health, comfort, and peace.

God Bless!

I can't even imagine what they are going through right now, facing all of these decision! Praying that their hearts and minds are guided by their Heavenly Father!

No, I cannot imagine what Melanie and Austan are feeling or thinking. It must be overwhelming and trying to absorb it all while being exhausted...it's all beyond my comprehension how they do it. I believe God is holding them at this very moment and will guide them through the decisions that will need to made. Our God is mighty and through Him all things are possible...this is something I believe with all my heart. There is a plan in motion and it's not necessarily the one the doctors have outlined. Praying and believing there will be a healing in Witt. Thank you God for continuing to walk this road with this sweet family.

you're so right- we never in a million years can understand what Melanie and Austan are going through as well as your family, but we DO KNOW that we serve a mighty God. I LOVE how he has worked thru Witt's life, love how he has left drs in awe , and love how he has held witt and your family in his hand every step of the way. I know he will thru this step as well. Praying for clear guidance, peace, and healing. How GREAT is our God. How GREAT if your faith and what a testament Witt's life is to sooo many of God's goodness. Praying you FEEL his presence today.
