Luke is back in the Hospital again!

We decided after 3 days of Luke being on oxygen that we needed to get him back to the Hospital so that the Dr.'s can figure out what is the matter. We went to the ER last night around 4:30 and they admitted Luke into his room around 8:30. They took all kinds of cultures and blood work and we still are not sure what is going on. All we know is that he is needing a lot of oxygen just to get through the day.

God did a good work in my life yesterday after we got to the ER. We did not want to go sit in the waiting room with all the sick people so they put us into an empty family room to wait. During this time I had a good time of just praying and singing praises to God, I needed an attitude adjustment. Sometimes it is so hard for me to continue to trust in the Lord and His timing in healing Luke. But after our 20 minute wait I left there knowing that we are here for a reason and my number one prayer is that the presence of God will radiate from both Luke and my lifes. I realized that I was looking at the Hospital as a failure in my faith that God is healing Luke and the Lord set me straight on the fact that our visits are not failures or a lack of faith, but more opportunities to share the love of Jesus with those that need to see it. Don't get me wrong I'm very anxious to get back to my home where I have my other children that need me just as much as Luke does, but I am at peace for now being here.

Please continue to pray not only for Luke's oxygen levels to get better, but also for the Dr.'s to have wisdom to know how to treat this and know exactly what is going on in his little body. I would also like to ask for continued prayer for Isaiah, Ezekiel and Lily, they are all still struggling with crouppy coughs and runny noses. Thank you once again for your continued prayers, I know that they are working, we get comments all the time from the nurses, RT's and Dr.'s about how fast Luke seems to recover.

Love in Christ,
Luke's Mommy Sue

I will say a special prayer for you and for Luke tonight! Your faith is an inspiration to me and I'm sure it is even a greater inspiration to those nearby.

Hi all-
I just want to say that your family is always in my prayers. I know that you are tired and that is when God is carrying you. This last year has been like a roller coaster ride with many ups and downs twists and turns all with their own challenges. Your whole family is on it. Please know that you and yours are always in my prayers and will remain there. Take care of each other. Sue you and Gordy need to lean on each other. Give each other big hugs. You are doing well. Remember God is watching you. Always Mary :)

Dear Sue, again just seeing this (8th) I was upset to see that Luke is in the hospital. I did think about how the Father ministers to others through YOUR's and Gordy's testimony ... and LUKE's! I know that is hard... or I can't imagine. But I want you to know I am praying and lifting you up. I am also praying for Isaiah, Zeke, and Lily~ thank you for keeping us posted.
all our love,
your Georgia Friends,
Billy, Teena, Michael, Mandi, Dakota, Alyssa, Wyatt & Wesley
