Long Night

This picture is not from the snow today but a previous one last week. Asher did well overnight all things considered. He didn’t get much rest but that was to be expected. His blood pressures were able to stay where the docs wanted them, his chest tube drainage is slowing down nicely. He has a lot of pain but is managing it really well. His chest X-rays look great. Today is a big day as physical therapy will come by later and have him sitting up and beginning to move around. Hopefully his blood pressures will settle out and he can come off some of those medications. He is having such a positive attitude so far and doing everything that has been asked of him. We are so thankful for everyone’s prayers, encouragement, and the showering of things that apparently keep showing up at our house for not only Asher, but the other kiddos as well. Thank you seems inadequate as there are no words to fully express how grateful we are.
