I just talked to Bonnie and Ethan has had a good stable day. They are currently trying to wean him off the epinephrine and that is going well. He should be completely off it sometime tonight.
Please pray that the weaning will continue to go well. Ethan is in a highly environment sensitive area of the NICU, which means there is very little physical contact (mainly from doctors and nurses). It is emotionally draining for Bonnie and Kerry to see their precious little baby laying there and fighting for his life and not even be able to "love" on him. Thankfully, we know that he has the most gentle and powerful hands holding him right now.
I know that Bonnie and Kerry are feeling all our prayers. So many people are praying for them and Ethan. If you want to leave a special prayer for them in the comment box, I know that would be encouraging. Gods word tells us to "pray without ceasing" (1 Thes 5:17) and "where two or three have gathered together in My name, I am there in their midst" (Matt 18:20). My theology may be wrong, but I'm going to assume that we can "gather" in prayer on the web and He will hear our prayers and be in the midst of this situation!
