Can I please just testify about our God?! He is a BIG God and He can do BIG things when His people pray. Bonnie just called and wanted to tell everyone that Ethan is breathing on his own!! No oscillator, no ventilator, no C-PAP....on his own!!! The doctors were very aggressive today about turning down his meds and getting him off the machines. He is only on a very low dose of a couple of medications and getting great results on all his gases and blood pressure test. They are still trying to wrap their minds around the past 24 hours. They give God ALL the glory for this miracle, because that is exactly what it is...a miracle. An answer to prayer. They are so thankful for every prayer that has gone to the Father for Ethan. Please, please pray that he will continue breathing on his own and that his stats will stay up and that he will not have to go back to the ventilator. Bonnie was so excited to hear him cry this evening! That is great because it means he is having to take deep breaths. And to see their sweet, precious baby boy's mouth and nose free from tubes was so wonderful. Thank you, Jesus!!!
Also, they do ask that we pray for Helen. Her innocent little 3 year old mind doesn't really understand all that is happening and why she can't see Ethan. Pray that the Lord will calm her spirit and comfort as well. She has really been a trooper this week. It is the longest she has ever been away from her Moma and Daddy. Pray that God will grant her a special peace for the rest of her visit this week and as she goes home with Nana and Popa on Saturday.
Please still remember to lift up baby JR and his parents, Rudy and Kimberly as well.
