Update On Karl

They lowered the amount of sedative this morning and Karl has been more agitated, so they put the sedatives up a bit more.

He is continuing to do the trial of breathing and he is doing this well again.  They will continue to have him off the ventilator each day until it gets to stressful for him, then they put him back on.  

The first day he was off the ventilator, he was off for 6 hours.
 {Forgive me if I spoke otherwise, I may have been confused.}
Yesterday he was off for 7.5 hours. 
So far today he has been off for 3.5 hours.

Please pray that Karl's agitation will stop.
That he will continue to breath well on his own.
That he will open his eyes voluntarily.

They are giving him more rest today, 
calling it actually a "day of rest."

We all agree:  
Since this is Sunday and a God-given day of rest, 
Karl should have a rest too.

 Thank you for praying for peace and healing for him.  

Lastly, we are keeping the Prayer Vigil going.
I know that it is easy to let up and get weary.
It reminds me of this verse:

"Let us not lose heart in doing good, 
for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary."
Galatians 6:9

If you are up for it, please add your name to the Prayer Vigil.
**You can get to the Prayer Vigil by clicking on the picture of Karl and Autumn {at the top of the sidebar} that looks just like this one.**
