Quiet night.

Olivia seemed to have a quiet night. She really had no changes either way. Her blood gases continued to be within a reasonable range.
Yesterday was definitely a day of hard decisions. What it ultimately came down to was whether we want to put our trust in technology, which has a higher probability of failing us, or put our trust in God, who never fails us, regardless of the outcome. We are confident we made the right decision yesterday. That's not to say we won't make a different decision today or tomorrow, but as for now, we are good with how things are going.
Keep the prayers coming...

I'm happy to hear it was a quiet night. Were you & Zac able to have a quiet, restful night?

Praying things continue in a positive direction.

You know I'm already your 88th visitor today! That makes me smile that so many people started their day thinking about Olivia! We are praying that today is a million times better than yesterday. I'm so thankful that the same God who spoke a word and created this world, the same God who spoke a word and calmed a storm, the same God who raised Lazarus from the dead, that's the same God who loves Olivia and who is watching over her right now!

Dear Zac and Family: The power of prayer is undeniable. Prayers will continue to strengthen you and your family as well as Olivia. Technology is only an assistant to the One who knows and controls all. He will take care of all of you even though the decisions are hard to make.

There is no doubt that your beliefs give you strength through these decisions. I consider myself very lucky to be able to pray for such woderful people (family, extended family, and friends included.) Olivia, I am thinking of you often. May God continue to give us all strength to know that there is a World that awaits us that is absolutely perfect.

Thoughts and prayers are coming your way from half way across the world. As we sit in Russia, we are so thankful for technology. We are grateful for its ability to keep us in touch with those that we love and to share our story with others. But technology does fail us often and it isn't technology that truly performs miracles!

Our prayers are with you and your family!
