Scottie Update

Dear Friends,
A better day today Scottie wise. Weather is terrible. They put the 3rd tube in his chest about 12:30 am. It went well and it drained all of the air out of his chest cavity. His oxygen level went from 84 to 176 which is the highest it has been yet. He stayed pretty stable all day had a high temp problem which is ok now. Drew fluids to check for infection and have him on antibiotics. Did not get to talk to doctors today but his respiratory therapist was very thrilled. Maybe we are turning a corner but we do remember we are on God's time and Bubba time. We are very thankful for the turn around today and look forward to better days ahead. We are praying he will stay stable through the night with no phone calls in the middle of the night like the last 2 nights.
Thanks for your continued prayers and support.

God Bless,

Scott and Beth
