In just a few minutes 
{11:00am MST}
Karl will be having surgery to put a tracheotomy 
in to protect his airway.
He will also be having a feeding tube put in.

Here are the requests via Vicki:

{1} Surgery to go smoothly.
{2} No infection.
{3} Continued healing to Karl's brain and lungs.
{4} Please would you also pray that Karl's body is filled with peace as he continues to heal?

**standing together till Karl is healed**

Thank you to all who have continued to pray with us,
you are each part of Karl's miracle!!

Tuesday, July 26, 2011


Vicki  [Karl's mom] just phoned me...

She said, 

"I can't reach Autumn...we need her right now!  Find her!! We're getting some responses, he's starting to open his eyes!!  

PRAY with us!!

It's happening!!  

It's beginning!!  

Emma and I immediately started dialing Autumn and when Emmy reached her she quickly handed me the phone  {Autumny must have been in the bathroom due to the echo} and I said,

"Run Autumn - Run to his room!  
He's starting to respond!"

Autumn screamed, "He is?  He is?"

Pray!!  Pray!! Pray!!

"Then you will know that I am the Lord;
those who hope in me will not be disappointed." 
Isaiah 49:23b 
*thank you all who have been believing and praying and standing and fasting with us - you are part of Karl's miracle - don't stop!*

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.**
