Scottie Update

Hey Yall. I got this update a few minutes ago and wanted to share it with you. Thank you for all your prayers!

8/23/08 PM
Scottie has been stable all day. His numbers look good oxygen levels 98-100, They have cut the ventilator to 65% and are holding. Temperature is normal.
This has been the longest he has been stable in quite awhile. THANKS BE TO GOD. We are praying for another night with no calls and for him to stay stable. Hopefully they will take some x-rays tomorrow and see at least a little improvement but the nurse says that x-rays will lag behind vitals as far as showing improvement. We hope this is a sign of the miracle we have been waiting on.
On another sad note we have met many people with loved ones in similar conditions to Scotties. One of these is Rachael who is only 17 years old. She came in the hospital the day before Scottie. She was hit by a car as a pedestrian(sounds familiar). When we left tonight she was not doing well like Scottie yesterday. I would ask that you all say an extra prayer for God to start healing Rachael's lungs as well. Also pray for God to comfort her family and keep them strong.
Rest well and we look forward to hopefully more good news tomorrow God Willing.
God Bless,

Scott and Beth
