Ethan was where the doctors wanted him to be tonight when we left him. He is being treated with a diuretic to remove fluids from his lungs so that they will be able to open more easily. We can already tell that he has removed a lot of fluids because he will briefly open his eyes as they are not as swollen as before. He is trying to breathe over the vent, and we need to pray that he will just relax and heal. The blood cultures were finalized as negative today, so he received his last doses of antibiotics. He is also off of all blood pressure meds. Praises to God for these small victories!!

Dad's Thoughts:

Today Bonnie gave me some scripture to read - Psalm 91. It talks about the safety that you have if you are abiding in the presence of the Lord. Just read it will be blessed! I will let God's words speak for themselves.


  1. No victory is ever small. We will continue to pray. Thank you for sharing this journey with us and for opening your heart. Hope the weekend is filled with more "small" blessings.

  2. Kerry and Bonnie;

    Mark and Katie Armstrong is great friends of mine and Mark told me to come to your website! I am praying for your family that you all will be together AT HOME very soon!

    I will leave you with a quote from a church that we used to attend!


    Know that he is God and all things happen within HIS time, not ours!

    With Gods love!!

  3. "The atmosphere of expectancy is the birthplace of miracles." I like that. Here is a quote for all of us: "Faith is the hand of man reaching up to heaven and never returning empty!"

    God's Word is the truth that makes us free. Lord, we call on Your name and STRIVE to lay hold of You. Open Your heavens over Ethan. Now is the time, this is the hour, when the Spirits power will move because of Your GRACE...because of Your power...Your goodness...Your promises through which we have an inheritance. BY HIS STRIPES WE ARE HEALED!

  4. I love it! Very creative!That's actually really cool.
