Another stable night

We are so thankful for 'uneventful'! Daniel had a quiet night. He seems to save the action for early morning. Both mornings so far, he's had blood pressure issues, which they've managed to correct with medications. He didn't produce any urine last night, so they may put him back on dialysis. A few of his labs were a little off too.

He is still squeezing away this morning and moving his lips. They will not put him back on the paralytic now unless they absolutely need to. They will work with him through sedation.

We know there are still hills to climb, but we feel so strongly that he's turned a corner. We also feel strongly that we've turned a corner--in our faith. This experience has truly transformed us. I hope someday we can share some of the grace-filled moments we've been blessed with through this experience, so many amazing people. Unexplainable events that could only be driven by the Holy Spirit.

Bubba, Grandpa and Uncle Andrew are coming today to sit with Daniel while we drive back to Delray with Madi and spend the day with her. We are so looking forward to seeing her. It feels like it's been a month.

There is NOTHING like experiencing the grace of God first hand...it truly will transform you.

We continue to pray for him daily.

Just to give you piece of mind, it has been my experience that everyone has the issues early morning..that seems to be consistent no matter what:)

All our love and prayer,
The Burden Family

Thank God...he is so good! Your faith has been so inspirational for me and I am sure so many other people as well. When we go through the fire he is there.... I am sure God will use Daniel and his life for big things to come! He is a blessed little boy to have such awesome parents!
Stay strong!

Hey Guys -

Just a note to let you know your family at Holt put the word out about your request for prayer. My family and I will be praying for God's continued blessing and healing for Daniel - also for rest and peace for you too. We got your back in prayer...God is on the Throne.

Blessings
