Again, many thanks to the Stanton's for keeping us posted on Joseph's progress. This afternoon's update has more encouraging news:

Just a quick note to let everyone know Joseph did well through the night which prompted a visit from the trach doctor this morning who took him to the operating room and inserted the trach tube. He tolerated the surgery well with no complications. His ICP levels when he came back to the room were only around 18 so that was great. Right now they are 7-14 and his lungs are doing well following the anethesia.
Rob is still concerned about the new found frontal lobe damage but I truly believe that this will be yet another miracle that we will be privileged to witness. I know there are those on our periphery that have not cast out all fear, doubt and unbelief yet so I think this will speak to them in a mighty way. So, please be in prayer that Joseph can be used by God to serve as a vessel in showing the doubting just how big our God is.
Thank you our dear prayer warriors!
