Psalm 135:5-7

    5For I know that the LORD is great
         And that our Lord is above all gods.
    6Whatever the LORD pleases, He does,
         In heaven and in earth, in the seas and in all deeps.
    7He causes the vapors to ascend from the ends of the earth;
         Who makes lightnings for the rain,
         Who brings forth the wind from His treasuries. 

Endurance had a really good day today!  The last time he had a good day like today was over two weeks ago, but that was after a surgical procedure, two blood transfusions, and pain meds.

This morning's really good day was so different and better!  All day yesterday he was running a fever around 103.  He was given tylenol.  During the night his nurse only gave him tylenol and no pain meds.  In the morning when the head attending cardiologist Dr. Baden, came in, Endurance's fever had broken, his heart rate was in the low 100's, and he was completely resting comfortably!

This is how his whole day went.  They even lowered one of his ventilator settings for him to breathe a little bit more on his own and he did great all day!
Each time the different doctors came in his room they were so bewildered yet happy that Endurance was doing so well.  Lot's of smiles today!

By the way, we had two birthdays today!  My dear husband turned 43,  and Endurance turned 10 weeks old (Happy Birthday sweethpea!)  Our dear friend and church elder, Brett, suggested that we celebrate each month of life, each week of life, each day of life!

Let God be praised!
