Witt's fluid level is better today.
His face is not nearly as puffy!

He is such a big boy now!
Hopefully Witt will be moved up to the 7th floor tomorrow. Witt has been in ICU(mostly the PICU but also the CVICU) ever since January 11th. I don't know how God does it but it never seems as long as it is! We are anxious for Witt to move to a regular room. On the 7th floor, it is 2 0r 3 patients per nurse and kids are on monitors for the most part. The best thing is that you have your own bathroom and a bed!!! I, of course will miss some of my friends that work in the PICU and the real coffee served in the recliner room. Mostly, I will miss the incredible and unique opportunities that God gives to minister to people and to be ministered to in the waiting room. But, moving on up from PICU to the 7th floor is always a good thing where Witt is concerned!
Witt even set up in his chair for a while today!

Please pray for Kamden. She is 6 weeks old and fighting for her life. She came in with RSV. Yesterday she crashed and is now on ECMO. She is on this because of her lungs. I have had the wonderful opportunity to get to know her young parents(Granville and Katy). Granville told me he has been away from God and church for a while but that he would like to get back on the right track. He gave Witt a card that said he was praying for Witt within the first few minutes of meeting him a week or so ago. Katy and Granville both will just pull up a chair and visit but most of the time they are at Kamden's bed side.
