An update on John Michael

Dr. Haight greeted John Michael this morning with, "Good Morning Sunshine! You look great today and I don't hand out compliements lightly!" She went on to tell us that while they are still very cautious about his prognosis, he could not have done any better than he has to improve from his condition on Monday!!!! Thank you God!

They believe that his condition has stabilized!!! Some of his numbers are better and some aren't, but on the overall picture, we are encouraged. We also saw his white blood cell count grow to 1.1 today! He went over 24 hours with no blood transfusions! Dr. Haight thought that was remarkable considering the fact that he is on the CVVH machine. He was getting a platelet transfusion before we left, but still doing great! He might be able to be extabated by Wednesday! It will be so good to be able to see him regain consciousness and begin to talk again. I can't wait to hear his voice.

Please keep praying - their is a list of specific things that John Michael's family is praying for on their website HERE. This is wonderful news and I'm sure they could use more in the days to come.

Thank you.
