Luke had a great night and get's good reports today from his Dr.'s

I just wanted to let everyone know that Luke had a awesome night. He went to sleep around 6:30 and didn't wake up until about 3:00 a.m. the nurse came in to do her regular stuff, then the repirational therapist did their stuff, then I held him a few minutes put him back into bed and went back to sleep until about 7:oo. We were both in need of some major sleep, God is so good to allow us to get our sweet rest.

Today has been an awesome day. The surgeon came in this morning and was pleased with Luke's progress, so she said that we could start some pedialite bolus feeds, which have been going well so far. We are starting slow and I'm hoping tomorrow we can begin his formula, once he is taking that okay we are free to go home.

The best part of my day was when Luke's pulmonologist came in to check on Luke, he was originally reluctant to take out Luke's trach, but went ahead and did it because we really wanted it done. Needless to say, today after listening to his lungs, he was very pleased with what he saw and heard. Luke has been off oxygen today and has been doing great on his own. To say I was excited with this report is putting it mildly!!

I have doing okay, I miss the kids at home, I hope to be able to go home for a few hours this evening, to repack and put the boys to bed before coming back for the night. Lily is staying at our good friends the Jacobs home tonight I sure do miss her, but know that she is being spoiled by their family.

Thank you once again for your prayers they have and continue to be the best medicine that Luke recieves on a daily basis. Keep praying that he will take his feeds great tomorrow so we can be home soon.

Love in Christ,
Luke's Mommy Sue

Last night we were encouraged to sing praises, letting the Word of Christ "have the run of the house" (Col. 3 MSG Bible)
This song came to mind when I read your latest blog-
"To God be the glory, great things He hath done, So loved He the world that He gave us His Son....".
May songs of truth and joy overflow your hearts and spill out over your lips. :-)

Im so happy to hear that your Lukie is doing well. I sometimes type in the name Luke on the internet because I had a son on 12/31/2004 and lost him on 4/5/2005 at a daycare. She placed him on his tummy and he when he was found they could not bring him back. I love to know that other Lukie's are out there happy and well. God has been good to you and your family and I wish and hope all the best in Luke's recovery. Jackie Luke Patrick's mommie
