April 17- 10:00pm

We have come back to the hotel for the night. We left Cody a little earlier than usaul. He had such a big night last night and day today that Cody's nurse wants to give Cody as much rest as possible. We won't be going in until 8 in the morning. Hopefully we can get some rest also. Cody's status is the same as before. Will open eyes, squeeze hands, wiggle toes, move head, and open mouth to request. He as shook his head yes, and lifted his head up from the bed. These are only small minute steps that hopefully mean good things. We still don't know much about his brain and won't until his EEG on Monday.

He is still on the ventilator, it is set on 10 breaths and Cody gives the rest. His breaths go anywhere from 15-30 depending on if he is resting or aggitated. The respiratory crew think he is ready to be weaned off that. They will begin that tomorrow.

His night nurse for last night and tonight is a male nurse by the name Blake Chelf. He is from Kremlin, Ok! He knows Christy Kelley, a great family friend! His respiratory therapist is from Pond Creek! What a small world. His care team is amazing. They share scriptures with us and can't believe how strong our faith is. It's only getting stronger! This is just the beginning of our journey with God!

We hear the praise service that was held at our home church in Medford was absolutely amazing! We can't express how grateful we are that there are so many people that love Cody enough to do this. We always knew he was special but not this special!

Please continue to pray. I know I tell you that at every post but we really need them now. So much is happening. So many people are seeing and hearing God's word in this hospital. Cody's fighting but he still needs time to heal. Praise Jesus! We are so thankful for all the prayers that keep flooding God's ears! Pray for another good night!
