Witt is doing well tonight! He has been on a good amount of a paralytic medicine and sedatives so that he will not move. The area around the trach has to be given a few days to heel before he can be allowed to move. This afternoon the doctors lowered the dose of the paralytic medicine. They wanted to check some movement but Witt remains very sedated. He looks great! I am praying that Mel and Austan can at least get some sleep at night since Witt is not awake for his usual 10pm to 2am playtime!!! Hopefully, Witt will be moved up to the 7th floor within the week. That's the PCU(pediatric care unit) and those rooms have beds...glory!!!!
I am sadden and yet praising God that Reggie Holloway joined our Savior in glory tonight. Reggie had 19 years on earth and now an eternity face to face with Christ! I had the privilege and honor of walking with Reggie's family for a very short day and a half and yet our hearts are joined forever in Christ. I shared with them yesterday about the family I met right here last summer that as their baby was breathing her last breaths they were asking God for healing and yet they ended the prayer time with minutes and minutes of proclaiming over and over "nevertheless, nevertheless, nevertheless we will praise You!" Reggie's family are "nevertheless" people. Reggie is in the very presence of God and His full glory and his family...well, they walked out of here praising the Lord!!!!! NEVERTHELESS, NEVERTHELESS, NEVERTHELESS, I WILL PRAISE HIM!!!
Reggie's mom, Gwen wanted Witt to have Reggie's balloon and cross!
This will forever be one of my most prized pictures. Reggie had already gone to glory
but look at their
countenance...nothing less than God!! This is Reggie's
aunt on the left and his mom on the right...I am
surrounded by the love of God!!!!
