Day 11 cont.

We are so very thankful for your continued prayers for Lucas.

He had some difficulty with his lungs this morning and the doctors had trouble getting his oxygen levels under control. They are not sure what the problem was and are not sure it could not happen again. His blood pressure also drops significantly if his medications are interrupted. Please pray for his cardiopulmonary status to improve and become normal.

His intracranial pressures remain acceptable for now and he is now off the medication inducing a coma. It may take a few days to wear off before doctors can reassess to see if Lucas has any neurological function.

Pray for God to work miraculously to restore the structure and function of Lucas' brain and to heal his other injuries and prevent any other complications. Pray for continued knowledge, wisdom, skill, and compassion on the part of all who are caring for him.

This continues to be a very stressful trial for us so please continue to pray for strength and courage (Joshua 1:9) and the peace that surpasses all understanding (Philippians 4:7).

We love you all. God is good.

  5. Burnie and Tina,
    Ekklesia was praying for you last night during our evening service- praying for strength and perseverance and endurance, praying for the Lord to heal Lucas, praying for Spencer as well.

    I love you all dearly, and continue to pray.
