Today was a good day. Leila was looking better today. In fact, she was looking good enough that the surgeon decided not to do surgery on her abdomen and to keep letting her get better before they decide if they really need to go back inside. Logan went back on the ventilator last night. But that is ok, because he hung in there and breathed on his own for 12 hours. Wow! Good job little man. The doctor said they would let him stay on the ventilator a couple of days so he can grow some more. Then they will try the CPAP again. 

Since both have had an infection this week and have been on antibiotics, the doctors did a spinal tap in order to test the spinal fluid for bacteria. In a few days the doctors will be able to tell if the spinal fluid was positive for bacteria and if they need more antibiotics. We are praying that the test will be negative so there is less chance for complications.

I didn't take any pictures today, so here are some from earlier this week.

  1. Brian,
    My family has been praying for you guys every night. Mallorie, our oldest, will not let us forget. I wish there was something I could say or do that would help. But in the end we just have to trust in The Judge of All the Earth, and that He WILL do right. Please let Amy know that we are praying for all 4 of you.
