Current update and request

Luke's fever has dropped to 100.5, so he is doing better. The nurses are still waiting for Luke to demonstrate a solid cough before they will remove the breating tube. You can tell he doesnt like the breathing tube and this would be a comfort to him to have it removed. The fluids in his lungs continue and they remove them from time to time, so pray that his lungs will dry out. Mom and Dad are holding up quite well given the circumstances. This is one of the hard times, where it is just a matter of waiting to see the Lord perform one more miracle.

I have no idea how many people are following this blog, but I suspect it is a significant number just from watching the comments (the comments are a huge blessing, keep them coming). That said, I have two other little babys that I would ask you pray for. First, Trident is a baby that was born 2 months early and weighed 5lb 4oz. He is doing well, pray that God will help him grow and his lungs develop. Second is a baby girl Isabelle, she is still in the womb. Her mom has high blood pressure and if it doesnt fall, they will need to take Isabelle out, she is 2 months away from full term. Mom's name is Elizabeth, pray her bp gets under control and that Isabelle will be okay when she does arrive in this world.

Being in the Pediatric intensive care, there are so many baby's here that need prayer, so just remember the staff of the PICU at Mary Bridge Childeren's Hospital. They are an awesome team and I appreciate all of them.

Ezek 37:9-10
9 Then he said to me, "Prophesy to the breath; prophesy, son of man, and say to it, 'This is what the Sovereign LORD says: Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe into these slain, that they may live.'"
10 So I prophesied as he commanded me, and breath entered them; they came to life and stood up on their feet-- a vast army.

What a testament of the Father's heart that you are asking for prayer for all these other babies in the midst of your own trials!!! Thank you Gordy for reminding us of God's unlimited grace! Please remember to run to your Father to allow Him to hold you. Continuing to press in to the Throne... The Besel Family, Steilacoom, Wa.

I am writing with a heart full of emotions..The thing most I want to say is Praise the Lord for your unfailing love, For your faith and foundation on our Lord Jesus Christ. I have been blessed to be a part of
watching God iginite the flame beneath your family &
watch GOD mold and shape each and everyone of you. When I think of how I would describe your family,. I think of
strong towers having GOD as your firm foundation.
The winds are blowing....You are holding on with every last ounce of strength..crying out to GOD...that's where
he meets you, filling you with peace, joy and healing.
I know GOD will make a way, when it seems there is no way.
He works in ways we cannot see. He will make a way for you,(GORDY)(SUE)(DANIEL)(NATALIE)(AMY)(ISAIAH)(EZEKIEL)
EXPECIALLY LUKE). Lastly, GOD is taking this experience
and turning it for good. Lives are being changed, hearts are being transformed, the blind will see and the deaf will hear......FAITH IN HIM. GOD'S timing is always perfect. We are praying for healing, from the top of his head to his precious toes. I am praying for each one of you trusting GOD to meet each one at each need. Thank you for being the reflection of CHRIST to us all. Praying in Olympia.
