Sunday Update

Edmund is doing beautifully. He is down another dose on fentynol and has eaten all of the colostrum Heidi could get. The RT started a thumping therapy on his lungs today to help break some things up. They are going to do that treatment about every 6 hours. Edmund has peed several times even without a catheter! Dr. Kristin stopped by and gave him his first chiropractic adjustment.

Tomorrow is still such a big day with the MRI. The scan actually happens in the morning, but who knows when we'll know the results. I hope and pray so much that his brain is not damaged. God has already been so gracious in healing him this far!

Heidi needs prayer for strength and the ability to rest. I need it because I'm prone to worrying.

Dennis, Heidi and Edmund

PS - I left our cell phone at home today, so if you tried contacting us and we didn't get back to you, thats why.

Dear Lord,
I pray for strength for both Heidi and Dennis, I pray that Heidi would be able to get the much needed rest and realize that taking care of herself is a very important part of taking care of Edmund. I pray that Dennis will remember not to worry about tomorrow as each day has enough worry of its own. I pray for Edmund that no matter what the results of the MRI tomorrow that your glory will show through and ultimately we pray that Edmund continues to heal and that he will not have any brain damage.

Rejoice in the Lord always, and again I say REJOICE. Let your gentleness be evidence to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard our heats and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4vs 4-7

I love all three of you.
Grace & Peace be with you

We're praying about the MRI and will continue to through the day tomorrow. Whatever the outcome is, God is using Edmund and you both and will continue to in a mighty way. We will pray for what we wish and trust God to know what is best.

Love You!!
Nate and Rachel

Always praying for Edmund to heal and for Heidi to rest and for Dennis to not worry. I will pray for God's will for the MRI and know that know whatever the outcome, every child is God's blessing.

God Bless,
