We have a situation that needs specific prayer. We spoke to the doctor this morning and he told us that we have some things working against us. Dad needs to have a "trach" put in to assist with his breathing until he wakes up. This is because the tube for the ventilator cannot stay in too much longer without risk of other major complications. Here is the problem: because of the fact that he has broken his neck, they cannot do a "trach" because his neck would have to be hyperextended. So, basically, we need dad to wake up....enough for him to be able to cough and clear his lungs on his own. Please pray that he will wake up so that we can ween him off of the vent. The doctor has said that dad has already surprised him this far. We know that God can do immeasurably more than we ask or imagine, so that is what we pray for. Thank you for your continued prayers and encouragement.
