But from everlasting to everlasting the LORD's love is with those who fear him and his righteousness with their children's children . . . Psalm 103:17

When I called tonight the nurse practitioner told me that he was having trouble on the ventilator, so they tried to adjust his breathing tube to see if that would help. Meanwhile, they were bagging him (giving him breaths) and it didn't seem to be working very well. They ended up just removing the tube, rather than trying to get it in a better place, and put in a new tube, after which time he was much more stable. They did an X-ray to see what the issue was (causing the resistance during the bagging, I think?) and found that the upper lobe of his right lung was collapsed, so they turned him a certain way to let that lung be elevated. Sometimes it only takes a few hours of that to re-inflate the lung. I pray so.

Another X-ray will likely be done in the morning. I don't know how long it takes the steroids to start working, but we know Who is sovereign over every last molecule of Seth's being! We again pray for His mercy and favor over our little man.

Thank you all for praying,
Carrie and Gavin

(Thanks also for all the lovely cards, emails, sweet gifts, etc. Someday we might catch up on all cards and emails WE want to write in return! We can't tell you how much we appreciate all you are doing, most especially your prayers.)
