Update

Hey Yall. I appreciate all the prayers you have given for Scottie and his family. They are very much appreciated. This is the update from his dad Scott.

8/16/08
The day started out very well with them cutting back on the nitrous oxide machine (nom). They tried to take him off and he did not like it so they put him back on. Tonight they had to clean out his lungs again and that is where the trouble started. His oxygen level dropped way off and he did not respond to the ventilator so they had to manually pump oxygen to his lungs. By the grace of GOD he stabilized after about an hour of this. The good news if any was that it only took an hour. We learned that they had to do this the other night and it took 2 hours to get him to stabilize. His lungs are in very bad shape and the doctor says they can heal it is just going to take a long time. They will continue to clean his lungs as needed to keep them clear of infection. Each time they do this there is a chance of his oxygen falling and they will have to repeat the procedure done tonight. The big plus is young and strong, plus GOD is on his side.

All we can do now is pray and wait for his lungs to heal. Thanks again for your continued prayers. There is no doubt in my mind that GOD is hearing them and will see us through this.

God Bless You All & pray that God will find a way.

Scott
