Witt is still off the ventilator but right now it's touch and go. He is on CPAP(Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) which forces the oxygen into his lungs and can help to keep them from collapsing. Witt's C02 level is high and his oxygen saturation is staying low so he might have to be put back on the ventilator. Once again the doctors are trying to keep him off the vent. Another blood gas will be done at 10pm. Witt's surgery has been scheduled for next Thursday. This is pretty tentative but at least there is a target date! Vickie(Austan's mom) and I were talking this evening. Once again we find ourselves almost at a loss of what to pray for. We know that our heart's desire is for Witt to get better...for this surgery to have a great impact on Witt's overall health. I think it's the details that stump us! Thank You, Lord that nothing stumps You...that You are concerned with every detail. Thank You, that You are in control of every detail from the timing of surgery to the very last stitch!!!

Praying that God's divine wisdom and His unsurpassing love will be evident to you as you await details of Witt's surgery. He loves you all dearly and so do we!
