Fabulous Friday

Today has been one of the more positive and uplifting days we've had in regards to news concerning Kevin. They had told us yesterday that they would put in a pic line in order to administer his IV antibiotics he needs to nix this staph infection. Well, once he got down to CICU, they decided to check a few other things first. The echo showed that his fluid buildup has reduced and also that he could maintain his O2 sats without the supplemental oxygen.

Sooooo... they decided not to put in the pic line, HOORAY! The only problem with this is that the regular IV lines really cause burning when the medicine goes in. I witnessed this tonight and can vouch that He does not like it one tiny bit.

If all continues to go well, we can probably look at going home on Tuesday.

Thank you all so much for praying, we cannot say that enough! The mighty hands of our Lord did in fact soak up that fluid!

Praising Him for the positive update!

I've heard Phil Whickham's song "Safe", several times this week, and always think of and pray for Kevin.

The chorus says . . .

You will be safe in His arms
You will be safe in His arms
'Cause the hands that hold the world are holding your heart
This is the promise He made
He will be with You always
When everything is falling apart
You will be safe in His arms.


The hands that hold the world are holding Kevin's heart. Lord, as you hold Kevin's heart please bring healing Lord, bring healing. Our faith is in You.

Continuing to pray for all of you,

Love,

Tina

Love it when God shows up in a mighty way, even though the "sponge hands of Jesus!" Don't worry though, we're not going to stop praying...
I still have my mustard seeds in the kitchen window as a reminder to keep faith!
