Thursday 10-4-2012. from Dad

Shane had a good night last night with receiving the minimal amount of oxygen from the machine (he is weening off of the machine) and his lung pressure is getting at a good place. He did however have an episode this morning that was quickly addressed; this poses a delay with the tube being removed. They will continue to work towards its removal but that is based on how he responds today. They will again start decreasing the machines output and weening him off; they say it is common for this sort of up and down activity.

He just finished the planned procedure from yesterday that involves a sort of a cleansing of his lungs, something that they wanted to do prior to taking him off of the air-tube. The Dr said it went well.

Once off of the tube they will begin reducing his medication in which he will start to wake up. We are not sure what extent if any he understands or knows what has happened to him from the accident. Once awake they will have a greater understanding.

The transition from his current state to a cognitive one will require wisdom, much love, and counsel. We again thank you for your support and continued prayer.

  1. Praying that He blankets all of you with His comforting shalom, that Shane sees angels ministering to him and the heavens opened up on his behalf, with the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God, just as Stephen saw Him at the end of Acts 7. May He reveal Himself as YHWH El Gemuwal, the God Who Restores, bringing full restoration. May God heal Shane and your whole family physically, emotionally and spiritually, released from trauma and the spirit of slavery leading again to fear. As a mom of a 24 and 22 year-olds, my heart is pouring out to our Lord on Shane’s behalf. Lord, we look forward to see how You will glorify Yourself through these circumstances, giving Shane a testimony of the power of Your Name that can not be denied. Hallelujah! Amen!
