This is the moment for prayer...

It is Friday night and we are about 12 hours away from the moment of truth for Little Bug. Tomorrow morning between 8-10am they are planning on pulling the vent tube out of Connor. We are praying for an absolute miracle to occur in his airway and for him to find the strength to breathe on his own without the support of machines. They have been weaning him throughout the day off of his morphine and he is down to minimal sedation. This should bode well for tomorrow if he can make it through the night without needing extra doses because of aggitation. The plan for tomorrow is for me to be holding Little Bug during the extibation process. We hope that the comforting feel of mama's arms will bring him comfort and peace to settle down and not need extra medicine.

Tomorrow will prove to be a defining moment for Connor and the course that his care will take. Our desparte prayer is that Connor will receive a miracle and he will be spared from future respitory difficulty. We remain positive and hopeful for a wonderful day tomorrow and I am off to get a good night of sleep to prepare for the extibation in the morning.

Pray for peace, pray for miracles, pray for healing to overtake Connor's body!!!!

Lovebug Hugs,
Lori

PS ~ I will update as early as I can tomorrow morning with the results of the extibation!!!!!!

As you hold Connor in your hands, God is holding the three of you in His palm. There is nothing bigger than He. He is I AM.

Randy & Lori. Thank you for sharing your heart with all of us. We will pray earnestly tonight that the Lord will do a miracle for Connor tomorrow as the ventilator is removed. He (and you as his parents) have suffered long enough with all of his crises. We pray that he doesn't have to go through any more crises. May God give you peace tonight. Pat & Doug White

Lori & Randy, the words for what I would like to say won't come but I want you to know that we will pray for tonight, pray tomorrow and pray in between if the Lord should wake us in the night! Many hearts will be with you as you hold Connor in your arms and the ventilator is removed.

We are in prayer!!!!! Our hearts are there in that room with you. You know that!

Lord, I pray for strength for Connor's little lungs and airways right now. Please work miracles and cause them to be healed. May every person in that room sense your peaceful, loving presence as they extibate. Breathe your breath into Connor. Give wisdom to Randy, Lori and the entire team of doctors as they step through each moment of this day. Work out your perfect will and plan in little Connor's life today.

I love you all!
