Witt's lungs are a little better today. Hopefully, before the end of the day they will do a pressure support trial and see how he does. If that goes well they will try to extubate him. We were told that Dr. Morales actually will not be back in the hospital till Thursday. It appears that it will be a few days before Melanie and Austan will discuss the possibility of surgery with him. I continue to ask God to showoff...to reveal Himself to everyone involved in Witt's care. Maria, the receptionist in the PICU waiting room, just called me over to her desk. A young Hispanic woman was there. Maria wanted me to hear the young woman's story and had to interpret for me. The one "word" that was said many times and didn't need interpreting was "Dios." Two years ago her one year old son was in the PICU. She was saying her final goodbyes after the doctors told her that her son had passed away. She continued to call upon Christ and miraculously her baby came back to life! The doctors were stunned. She was telling them that he was alive and finally they examined him and said truly he was alive. He is now three years old. Is anyone surprised that his name is Jesus! I don't know what God's plan is for Witt but I know that God is Able! And I know that the same God who was glorified in Jesus' healing will be glorified by whatever He chooses to do in Witt's life!
