LOOKING GOOD!

Witt had a very good checkup with Dr. Macicek! He wants Melanie to wean Witt's oxygen as low as possible keeping Witt's saturation about 95. Melanie has started this process but it will take a couple of weeks. Dr. Macicek doesn't want to try to wean Witt off the ventilator at all for now. The ventilator is actually therapy for Witt and one of the last options that helps with his cardiac issues by helping his lungs to expand. Dr. Macicek strongly encouraged Mel to live life with Witt. There was even some talk of taking a trip or two with Witt in the future!! Taking Witt out and traveling will be so much easier when they are able to have a vehicle that Witt's cart just rolls into. I know our God who has been and is Faithful has a plan for this too!!!

Last night Witt was able to go to Kelsey's(cousin's) birthday party. Graham(cousin) was really glad to see Witt and his toys!!

Jim and the boys!

always great when you finally get to leave the house for something other than a doctors apt.

How faithful our God is and so worthy of our trust and love! Dr. Macicek's report certainly sounded good. We LOVE the picture of Grandad and his two adorable grandsons! That's a huge smile, Jim! What a precious video of two sweet cousins! You are always in our hearts and prayers.
Love you so much,
Gayle and Bobby
