Rumor has it...

Today is the day. The plan is to get that tube out of Olivia! Today is day 50 of being on the ventilator. That is her longest stint ever, so we have to pray that she is strong enough to do all the work on her own. I'll be sure to post after they extubate her - don't know when that might be.
I don't know if you noticed, but I changed the little title under the heading of our blog. It used to read "A peek into our lives." That doesn't quite seem to fit anymore. Most days, you are getting a glimpse of our entire life - past, present, and future. Not just a peek. So, "dive on in." Hopefully Olivia's journey will continue to be a testimony to His enduring love and faithfulness!

Also, could you please pray for strength and peace for a family who lost their son this morning. We were in the hospital with this family at least a handful of times and I can only imagine the emotions they are feeling today.

Each of you is a testament of God's enduring love. Don't forget it. It was great to see your smiling faces at the restaurant. With prayers for all, Colleen Carlson

WooHoo! We will be praying for you as you wait for the extubation! We will also be saying extra prayers for the family you know who lost their son. Keep the faith!

I will be praying for that family. Your last paragraph brought tears to my eyes. I can't even imagine.

Very exciting news about Olivia! It's hard to believe that she's been on the ventilator for 50 days. I'm sure she can't wait to be free of it. I'll be praying about that too!
