Good news!

They took Pierce off of all the machines this morning. They had him on a ventilator and were keeping him sedated because everytime he would start to come to, he would freak out. Gloria, my SIL, was terrified that he wouldn't be able to talk because he could only grunt during the seizure and the seizure lasted for at least 40 minutes. Anyway, as soon as he woke up, he asked his mom to blow his nose! LOL Praise God, this made Gloria feel so much better because she just kept saying she wanted him to wake up and say "Hey, Mom" He doesn't remember what happened to him, but his memory seems fine otherwise. As far as I know, they still don't know what caused the seizure, and I don't think they are saying he is out of the woods yet. But this is an awesome improvement. My husband is at the hospital right now with his brother, so I may know more when he comes home.

Thanks everyone for the prayers, I truly believe that prayer can change things!

Prayer absolutely changes things and Praise God for some good news already!

On a different subject, I remember meeting Gloria from our dinner that night when you were in town. Please let her know I am praying for peace in Jesus for her and her family through all of this and that God's healing hand would be upon Pierce's body.

Oh thats so wonderful.
I feel so much for Gloria. These things are so much harder on the parents then the baby...lol
My son has a heart condition and every time he gets any kind of infection we end up sending 2 weeks in the hospital. The Doctors always tell me I look worse then him.

I will continue to my prayers for a full and speedy recovery!
Big hugs for you guys!
