He reigns from heaven above
With wisdom, power and love
Our God is an awesome God.
Jesus, Jesus, you're the glorious one
Jesus, Jesus, God's risen son.
Jesus, Jesus, Forever we'll sing.
Jesus, Jesus, We'll hail you as king.
Let all the saintly ones in God rejoice
The battle is won so lift up your voice.
Declare his name, the Glorious King.
Lift up the standard of triumph and sing !
Allen is mouthing a lot of words, lifting and moving his arms and hands, turning his head, responding to dumb jokes... being Allen. He recognizes us all, it seems. He made his hello to his mom cutesy mouth thing (can't describe). The doctors think they will put in the shunt for drainage early next week and we should get him to the Valley, Lord willing, by the end of the week. He still needs to wean off the vent, but he can do that in the Valley, if necessary. If I can beg more prayer from you (you've all been so wonderful to seek and beseech God on Allen's behalf)... please...
- Pray that the Lord will continue to improve Allen, strengthen him and cause his 'brain drain' as Erin calls it to work on its own.
- Pray that whatever is causing the low grade fever will be taken care of.
- Pray that his lungs and strength will allow him to come of the vent pretty quickly.
- Pray that we'll find the right LTAC (long term acute care facility) or rehab facility if he's off vents that will help him to improve.
We still wait... but I am enjoying all of Allen's attentions.
