Rejoicing, yet continuing to intercede

I know I wrote a post this morning, but I just wanted to share some exciting news. Joel is off of the ventilator & breathing on his own now! This morning the doctor decided that Joel was breathing well enough to remove his ventilator. He is no longer on any breather treatments. We are very grateful for his progress. He is not eating yet on his own, but Lord willing this will come in the next few days.

I'll share a few pictures with you from the past few days. You'll see one picture with his ventilator still in, but it is no longer there.

Then this morning Katelyn got to hold Joel for the first time since Tuesday which was truly blessed her heart.

We just love every part of him, even his little toes as you'll see in the third picture.

The last picture is our first family picture :)

Thank you for your prayers and support. We are so grateful for our gracious God who blesses us beyond measure even through trials. Even through this trial we are able to know the graciousness and goodness of our wonderful Lord and Savior.
