Judah has had a very good few days and they are still planning on taking him to have his bronchial tubes and airways checked out tomorrow, sometime in the late afternoon. If everything is the same as last week, (as detailed in Wednesday’s post) then Judah will have a tracheostomy tube put in. It has been our hope and prayer that his airways will not look the same as they did last Wednesday and that the trach tube won’t be necessary. We know what we’re hoping for is the impossible, but we also know that, with God, all things are possible. I came across this verse this morning:
“Have faith in God,” Jesus answered. “Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. Mark 11:22-24
Our prayer has changed from “Lord, let it be” to “Thank You that it is done”. We have chosen to stand in faith for our baby Judah. All throughout the Bible, God responds to our faith. We ask that you would join your heart with ours and “have faith in God” and believe for the impossible.

P.S. We’re very sorry to announce that we can no longer have visitors at the hospital. The flu is the worst the hospital has seen in 10 years, and they of course want to protect patients. This is understandable of course, but a little disappointing, too! Everyone will have to wait for his homecoming to visit Judah!
