09.02.10 – Update

It looks like the goal for bringing Pete home is Monday! He has continued to do well with his breathing. The doctors are wanting to wean Peter off the trach before sending him home. They are going to be giving him a series of “challenges” tomorrow to see if he is ready for that. It would really be good if Pete is able to come off of the trach so soon and to close off another opening for infection.

Peter’s staph infection is also gone. We are praying that Pete will be able to leave the hospital as soon as possible to prevent further infections from occurring.

Here are the newest things to pray for:

1) That the breathing challenges Pete will undergo tomorrow would go smoothly. Specifically the swallowing challenge.

2) That Peter would be protected from any further infections so that we can bring him home to a more controlled environment.

3) That the plans for Peter’s care at home would go well as would all other preparations on the home-front.

4) That the family would have the stamina and strength we need to do all of Peter’s care at home. 5) For Peter’s continued healing and for his brain to establish renewed connections with his body.

Thank you.

For the family, Hope

    praying for you all as you bring Peter home….may I lift you hight to the Lord….don’t forget to rest, love to you for God’s strenght……… Word of God in the familiar words of Isaiah 40,
    beginning with verse 28.
    “The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and His understanding no one can fathom.” Now, if the word “weak” or “weary” would describe you right now, then this next promise has your name on it. “He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” by Ron Hutchcraft
