Well today did not go as expected. Adam went into respiratory failure and was resuscitated for 2 hours before somewhat stabilizing. He is currently on full support from the ventilator. He is now in a private room requiring 1 on 1 care rather than a double room earlier. So things are pretty critical. (This is not what they meant when they said he may get worse before better.) So I continue to ask you to pray for Adam and his little body. I pray the Father is speaking to His l…ittle Adam under sedation in tender ways we could never understand. I pray Adam is not feeling all this discomfort. I pray for wisdom for us as parents in making decisions and caring for adam. And for the amazing team who is caring for him tirelessly. Adam is so loved and it is so powerful to behold.
In regards to continuing to ask for prayer…it feels silly sometimes. The Lord already knows how we long for Adams healing and for relief from this trial. Sometimes it aches to keep praying and may even feel in vain. A friend wrote me though from C.s. Lewis Chronicles of Narnia. I love this… “Wouldn’t he know without being asked?” Said Polly. “I’ve no doubt he would’, said the Horse (still with his mouth full). But I’ve sort of an idea HE LIKES TO BE ASKED”
I believe the Father loves being asked…communed with by each of us as we pray for Adam and so many others. I feel like giving up on prayer many times…but let us press in. He loves us and He loves hearing from us and He loves his adam.
