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

Seth, the last time I called in, was on minimal settings on the regular ventilator. The next step is CPAP (the nasal prong/mask)! If his 4 a.m. blood gas results and x-ray look good, they will most likely take the breathing tube out, move him to CPAP, and we'll be able to hear his voice for the first time! Granted, it will likely be either grunting or crying, but what a blessed sound that will be! Please keep praying God's protection over and healing for his body and lungs. Also, that he will be comfortable - he started getting the "shakes," sweating, flaring his nostrils, and bad diarrhea as a result of a lowered morphine dose. He's on an increased dose now but seems to be a bit agitated still. Please pray for his peace and comfort and wisdom for the staff to wean him in such a way that his body can tolerate it well. As always, please also pray for protection for his brain through all of this!

Update as soon as we hear something tomorrow . . .

To God be the glory!
