Joel is still in ICU in stable condition. He is still heavily sedated and on oxygen. He has to meet certain parameters before this can change. Please pray that these parameters will be met quickly so his recovery can begin in full. He can hear me and knows I'm there. He responds by squeezing my hand or nodding his head but we need more improvement from him. This surgery was very serious and he's got a long road of recovery ahead of him. We are praying that it will be swift and go smoothly.Thank you for praying.
