Praying for Movement

At noon today, the doctors decided to give Daniel a "Roc Holiday". They removed him from his paralytic drug, Rocuronium. They do this to find out how long it takes the body to react. Once Daniel's body shows signs of movement, which can even be twitching, they will begin administering the drug once again. It is for his own safety right now, with the ECMO machine and the fact that his chest is still open. So this evening we pray for movement.

Hi Lisa and Jim. I'm sorry I've been out of touch, but I just saw Jennifer's post about Daniel. I just read your blog and caught up to current events. I am praying for all of you and hoping Daniel gets movement. Love and prayers,
