Brad had a good weekend and has remained pretty stable. We are still thankful that for fewer "intense breathing moments" and that he hasn't oftne required extra meds for breathing. However, he has been staying on the oxygen mask most of the time. Right now if he tries to change over to the nasel canular, his heart begins to race. This has been frustrating for him for a number of reasons...the mask makes it difficult to eat and it also makes him uneasy to know that he is relying on it (the mask gives more O2, the nasal gives less).

We have been having several really good nights of sleep...a tremendous blessing. Our children have also been sleeping well...hooray!

I am praying that Brad has a tremendous week of improvement...we pray that he is able to use his nasal canular more and more and that he feels more confident with his health.

Thank you for the prayers.

Praying for better breathing with thanks for the rest you have been getting. We love all of you!

Love all the haircuts, and I'm impressed that Kaelyn sat still for 15 minutes. That's longer than most people realize! :)

Heavenly father, giver of life and health, give your power of healing to Brad, that he may be strengthened in his weakness and have confidence in your loving care; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

Praying without waiver.
