11.09.11 – Update

Peter is continuing to get stronger and we have been able to resume some of our regular therapy sessions with him. We are still working to wean Peter from his trach, but have received many conflicting opinions from his doctors as to how far the pneumonia set Peter back on getting his trach out and continuing with further rehabilitation.

Pete is somewhat held up on getting into the rehab program until either his trach is out or he can communicate with us. This week we saw a doctor that gave us a little more information about weaning Peter from the trach. He mentioned the possibility of doing a minor surgery to make the process smoother, but nothing has been decided.

Here are the things you can pray for:

1) Pray for Peter to keep regaining strength and for his healing.

2) Pray that we and the doctors will have wisdom about getting his trach out with the right procedure as soon as is safely possible and that the rehab program will hold Peter’s spot until we can get this worked out.

3) Please continue to pray we find a wheel chair van. Peter’s height has proved a challenge in finding the right vehicle.

For the family,

Hope
