Scottie Update

Hey Yall. I got this update this morning and wanted to share it with you. Please remember this family in your prayers.

Scottie had a bit of an episode about 12:30 am but was stable when we visited him this morning and early afternoon. Later in the afternoon his oxygen level dropped off. They did X-rays and found that he had an air pocket outside his lung in the chest cavity. They had put in a second chest tube at 12:30 am. They are not sure where the air came from. He was stable when we left tonight. They are going to just leave him alone for now since he is stable.
Scottie is a real fighter and seems to bounce back after each episode. We know that God has him in his hands and that the two of them will work this out. Keep praying for the healing of his lungs and strength to keep fighting.
I couldn't help but think with the storm off of the coast here that Scottie is in his own storm. But Jesus has his hand out just like he did for Peter, and Scottie is holding on while Jesus holds him up.
God Bless Everyone,

Love in Christ

Scott and Beth

Thank you for your prayers....
