Prayers, Faith, Hope

The events of yesterday and today are such a long story, I barely know where to begin. I'll try to make a long story short.

For various reasons, Eric now has a new doctor, a very well respected pulmonologist. Ten days on a ventilator, and we simply weren't seeing improvement. In fact, Eric's condition was worsening. But as of this morning, when the new doc got aggressive with treatment, we're re-finding a glimmer of hope. Nothing like bilateral chest tubes to reinflate the lungs.

Thank you all for your thoughts, concerns, and especially your prayers. We truly need a miracle. Please check out my friend Jess' blog. She very eloquently writes exactly how I'm feeling right now.

Dilmore Family,
The Kanes are praying for you and for your precious boy.

Just know He is listening and the fervent prayer of the righteous avails much...we just sometimes have to wait for the "availing" part.

You are in my thoughts and prayers. I, too have had a child hospitalized with pneumonia and know how very scary it is. Keep up the faith and God will get you through.

Dear Angie and Family,
I have been praying for God's healing touch upon your precious son and for the necessary strength for you and your family to get through each day. As you know, our Ryan was also on a ventilator 2 times for pneumonia. I can feel your heart ache right now and wish that I could wrap my arms around you. Sending you a big hug and lots of prayers.
Love, Michele
