The doctors have elected not to wean Joseph off the phenlybarbitol (meds for drug induced coma) to allow for more reduction in the brain swelling in hopes that when they do remove it they won't have to put him back on it. What I would really like to ask everyone to pray for is continued healing of his brain while we wait but when they do choose to take him off the medication that we will see the work of God's healing hand on Joseph's brain function. This is when we'll get our first peak at the severity of the injury and what his body is able to do and not do. Pray that God's angels of healing are surronding him preventing him from infections and complications. Pray that all doctors, nurses, radiologists, and other care providers are blessed with the Lord's wisdom, not their own, in treating Joseph so he can be returned to full health and function.

Know that our entire family is surviving this tragedy solely because of your interceding in prayer on our behalf asking the Lord to pour out His greatest blessings on Joseph while providing us with the peace that only He can provide. You are our life line and I will never be able to express how greatful our family is for your unselfish giving of continued prayers. May God bless you for the love you are showing us.

Fully relying on Him,
