April 18, 11:00am

This morning Cody was pretty aggitated. They suspended his vent this morning and he lasted about an hour. He then spiked a fever and became pretty aggitated and his O2 sats started to come down so they turned his vent back on. Today we ask that we make sure to pray for Cody's fever. Pray that it will stay down. His fever started to go up and that makes makes his O2 come down and he gets aggitated. They don't know what's causing the fever. His white blood cell was a little elevated so the nurses are going to talk with doctors about putting him on antibiotics to prevent anything further.

We have become friends with a family that has a loved one next to Cody and we share waiting rooms with them. We have added her to our prayer list and ask you say a prayer for her as well. Her name Sharon Huggins. Her husband actually graduated high school with Jennifer's father-in-law. What a small world! They are a wonderful family and we have shared our faith with them. In church service this morning we met a mother and father of a 27 year old women who is waiting on her second liver transplant. They are a very faithful family is desperate need of prayer for their young daughter. We have added her as well to our prayers. She is a dance instructor with a 7 year old daughter. Her name is Alisha Fadely.

Please pray for Cody's brain to continue to heal and for his fever to come down and for him to get some rest.

They are limiting his stimulation again today. So I'm putting on my big girl pants and only being with him briefly to let him know I'm here and I love him!

  3. Know that others are in prayer with you. I don't know you or your family, but a friend asked me to pray with them...

    God is an awesome healer (He's the only one!) And there's something about the power of prayer... I am praying for Cody, your family, and the other family you mentioned. Be encouraged... God's love. (James5:16 - ...pray for one another that you may be healed...)

    Travis is our "son" by choice (a very long story) - he is the one who posted Cody's story on FaceBook - and we are earnestly praying for God's daily miracles. Many in our church here in Farmington, MO are also praying.

    One of those Cody has touched is Travis: please pray for him also that he would return to his Saviour with all his heart (Travis is rattled also having witnessed the accident) and for him to recognize the miracles God is doing in Cody.

    Grace for your moments,
    Christina (Mrs. F.)
