I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. Psalm 139:14

Update 4/5/2013

Carter has been more alert today although no real changes have taken place. The fevers have been down for the last 24 hours and the doctors have been able to cut back a little of the oxygen he is receiving. His blood work did look a little better in some areas with others not improving. We are thankful for these baby steps of improvement that God has given our sweet baby. The plan is to allow his body to rest this weekend and reevaluate everything on Monday.  Please continue to pray that he will heal from the last surgery, his pneumonia will clear up, all signs of infections to be gone and for the blood clot to dissolve quickly and safely. Thank you again for all of your prayers, messages, texts, and calls. We love and appreciate every one of them! As always...To Him be the Glory!!!

  1. The prayer hymn, "Be Still My Soul", best states my prayer for all of you.

    Be still my soul, before the Lord, For God is always near. Before your mind is moved to pray, God listens and will hear.

    You need not multiply your words nor pray with practiced art. Beyond all speech, God understands the hunger of your heart.

    Wait, then, in quiet confidence, your anxious thoughts at rest. God knows your needs before you ask and works for what is best.

    Be still, my soul, before the Lord; on God in patience wait. God's love unseen, surrounds your life; God's help will not be late.

    Prayers for all of you continue.
