ICU-Day 6

Joel is currently stable. Yesterday when I was there I spent 3 hours staring at a vitals monitor practically holding my breath as I would watch his blood pressure and heart rate spike wildly due to the swelling in his brain. His vitals are now stable which is a very good thing. That's what we need. We want everything to stay stable and the swelling to decrease by the time we get more CT scan results in a couple days. I would like to take a moment to thank everyone who has been praying. The outpouring we have received has been amazing. We have a small group of prayer warriors that my Dad has organized that have prayed over us for years and have started intensely fasting for Joel. Our church, I adore my church. People are signing up on a spreadsheet (thanks Lauren!) to take hour long shifts to pray over us so that we are literally covered in prayer 24 hours a day. Then after they pray they write down scriptures that God has placed on their hearts. The body that I get to be a part of-they blow my mind. We are truly so loved and honored by them. Thank you also to anyone who has commented on our blog that they are praying. I'm not able to comment back on my phone but I read each and every comment. I read each and every text that people send me. We are not alone in this fight. We have thousands of people who are reading this blog now from all over the world. It blows my mind to know we are covered in prayer by that many people.

Have you ever seen a testimony quite like this?

Glorious Ruins-Hillsong

When the mountains fall And the tempest roars You are with me When creation folds Still my soul will soar on Your mercy

I'll walk through the fire With my head lifted high And my spirit revived in Your story And I'll look to the cross As my failure is lost In the light of Your glorious grace

Let the ruins come to life In the beauty of Your Name Rising up from the ashes God forever You reign

When the world caves in Still my hope will cling to Your promise Where my courage ends Let my heart find strength in Your presence

Let the ruins come to life In the beauty of Your Name Rising up from the ashes God forever You reign And my soul will find refuge In the shadow of Your wings I will love You forever And forever I'll sing
