Hey Yall. I just got an email with an update report from Scottie's Dad, Scott. I will share it with you.
Just wanted to give an update on Scottie. Today was a great breakthrough. They have taken him off of the nitrous oxide machine and his oxygen level has held on since 12:30pm today. This is good because they cannot perform the surgery as long as he was on that machine. He is still on the ventilator and hopefully if things go well tonight they will be able to start easing back on that. They have not rescheduled the surgery as of yet I will let everyone know when that will be.
We are so fortunate to have such great support from everyone. Your prayers are working so well. I would like to share with all of you a verse from a book that I purchased in the gift shop in the hospital, It is called One Minute Promises of Comfort by Steve Miller(not the singer).The scripture quoted was James 5:8 which says, "You also be patient, Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord." He talks about patience and says don't grow weary; don't give up. Don't think because an answer has not come that there is no answer. God has promised to watch and preserve you. BE PATIENT, AND LET HIM DO WHAT ONLY HE CAN DO.
The last line is very powerful to me and reminded to do just that.
Thanks again for your support and prayers and may God continue to bless each and everyone of your families.
Thank you all for your prayers. Please continue to remember this family and young man.
