If ever there were a day we wished for things to go according to script, it would have been today. We are so very thankful that they did. Even when Daniel was waking up and struggling so much, he was still demonstrating very typical behavior of children coming out of this type of surgery. From our arrival this morning until this moment everything has gone almost exactly as we were told it would go. All staff members have been thoroughly kind and gentle, all in their own way. This experience has been thoroughly bathed in prayer and we so grateful for that!
I have been updating Daniel’s prayer maps today and I have almost run out of push pins! People have been praying literally “from sea to shining sea”, and far beyond! If I’m counting right Daniel was prayed for in 33 States and in at least 8 countries on five continents! Awesome! Thank you so much.
It is now 9:30 p.m. and Daniel is struggling emotionally. He is crying and asking why he couldn’t have the one day surgery (there is no one day option!) and just go home and why can’t he get up and how long before they take this or that monitor off and he doesn’t want to be able to walk after all. It is really sad, poor little guy. These are going to be rough hours and days for him. Thanks for continuing to keep us in your thoughts and prayers.

Awww bless his little heart. Poor baby, I wish there was a one day surgery too Daniel. Be strong little guy it will be over with soon. Sending hugs and prayers. Xo
Lifting prayers of peace and blessed rest for Daniel and all.
Daniel, you are the strongest and bravest little man I know and I know you Mom and Dad are so very proud of you. Thank you for letting me pray for you. I know what it is like to be scared, alone, and wanting it all to stop. Jesus helped me through it all. Jesus will help you too. Your Dad and I teach men to “Be Strong!” For their families and for God. Now it’s your turn to Be Strong For your Dad and Mom. I know you can. God Bless.

Dear Ruth & Family, I will pray for Daniel to be able to stay still for 3 days and get him past this stage. Also praying for you Mom who is going through this difficult time. Love & Prayers!
