Everything is going on so briskly around here lately! This will be a quick update as it is 2:00am and I'm a bit tired....
Endurance has beat the odds again is is practically recovered from his virus and two infections. He is breathing on his regular ventilator at regular settings. All other machines and gas tanks have been put away again!!! Thank you God! I am at the hospital right now and just came out of his room. He is back to holding his mouse's paw and feeling his blanket for comfort.
Columbus here we come! As of last Friday, the ICU is setting Tuesday as the transport day to Columbus Ohio, Nationwide Children's Hospital! Yahoo! I will be going on the ambulance lear jet with him. Please pray for my nervousness to subside.
It took two days, yet with very loving brothers and sisters we have emptied our home here in Seattle. Lots of runs to the thrift store to joyfully make donations!!! Lots of trips to a small storage unit with just bare necessaties. And our friend will be taking one or two trips to the dump for us with the rest. God is good! I've seen my children grow in just this experience alone. Their brother means more to them than their material objects. Oh thank you Lord for this lesson.
Mike and Endurance's seven excited siblings will be leaving early tomorrow (or should I say in a couple of hours) for their trek through the northern states and Lord willing, arrive in Columbus sometime on Wednesday. Please pray for safe travels in a very stuffed van!
We're not exactly sure about lodgings yet, and again I'm thankful that God knows exactly every detail already.
Thank you for your prayers. I wish I could tell you all face to face how much the Holston's appreciate each one of you and your prayers. May God bless you this week!!!!
