Trying again tomorrow...

Daniel held his own off the ECMO machine, but given his low white counts and raise of lactic acid in his blood, they decided to return him to ECMO after about an hour. They will work on figuring out why these issues are occurring. They will try again tomorrow with removing him from the machine. His lungs are at the bottom of the priority list now. His kidneys are still being looked at, so they will return to dialysis. We stand strong for Daniel. We know you are praying hard.

Oh, and I should mention that thanks to a dear friend, Daniel has a beautiful statue of the Blessed Mother in his room looking down on him. We know this will bring him comfort.

Daniel always gives us a good day after a rough one so I am looking forward to tomorrow.

Romans 12:12
Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.

If he could only know all the people cheering him on and how many lives he is touching.

Our prayer is one day he will know and we will all celebrate his victory!

Jim and Lisa, you are in our prayers also as I know you must be exhausted. You are being so strong for Daniel. He has the love of his family and that means so much!

Prayers and hugs!
Jennifer
