Today was much like yesterday, not really any new developments. We are still waiting for his body, mainly his lungs, to be ready for extubation (removing the breathing tube).
They have thought he would be ready for the tube to be removed several times in the past week or so, only to be proven wrong. It seems like he’s just having a hard time getting over this hump. So, I’m asking those of you that are willing, to, over the next 48 hours or so, pray and believe for Judah to make a significant steps towards being ready for extubation. I’m not asking you to fast and pray all day, I’m just asking that over the next 2 days you would take a few minutets each day and ask God to touch Judah’s body. It would mean so much to us.
I know for many of you this would be nothing new for you and for some it would be a stretch. But we feel like we’ve been at a standstill for a while and we believe prayer can change things. We believe that God hears us when we pray and we believe God responds to prayer.
Here are some specifics:
– That the acid levels in Judah’s blood would drop to a “normal” level
– That Judah’s lungs would continue to grow and gain strength and be strong enough to support his breathing without help
– That the level of secretions (or mucus) in his lungs would drop significantly and what he does have he would be able to cough up
We are so grateful for so many of you following our story and praying for our Judah. Thank you so, so much! Let’s believe for significant steps over the next few days!
