Latest gas: lactate of 3.4 & glucose of 101. Since 6p, glucose has gone from 427 down to 43 & now is at normal levels. The rollercoaster continues...

Thank you, Lord, for continuing to work in our sweet boy. We trust him in Your hands & ask for your wisdom to determine the root of these issues.

Thank you for continuing to update even in the wee hours of the night. You may think people are asleep and not reading, but I have a little one I am up with and am always checking your blog. I continue to pray for Isaac and you as parents as well. I was reading a blog on http://www.joyfuljungle.com/2007/04/20/a-special-phone-call/
about a little girl “talking” to God about Isaac and was very touched at how many people are praying for him…even the little two year old girl.

God Bless you. Prayers are being said for a reduction in lactate and a stabalization of glucose. Infections to go away and an overall general state of well health in Isaac. Prayers are being said for your and Jordan to get some sleep. Neither of you look exhausted, but I'm sure you've bound to have gotten very little sleep over the last two months. On a light note, Jordan you rocked last night!

Praying for your family for peace and deliverance from this trial...for fruitfulness and growth. God is a God who acts on behalf of the one who puts their hope in Him!
I am praying Romans 8:28 "And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose".
I understand the roller coaster; it took our daughter, Sara Borden, 3 tries and 10 days to get off of C-Pap last summer...hang in there! We have faith that little Isaac will be home in your arms and his precious nursery SOON! We know you just want to enjoy your son and his babyhood...
I keep remembering a song from a favorite modern hymns CD by Keith and Kristyn Getty (the co-author of "In Christ Alone"). I love this song and pray if for your family when I hear it...I hope the words touch your hearts...God has a beautiful way of teaching us and lifting us up through music!

"Jesus, Draw Me Ever Nearer"

Jesus, draw me ever nearer
As I labor through the storm;
You have called me to this passage,
And I'll follow, though I'm worn.

(refrain)
May this journey bring a blessing,
May I rise on wings of faith;
And at the end of my heart's testing,
With your likeness let me wake.

Jesus guide me through the tempest
Keep my spirit staid and sure;
When the midnight meets the morning,
Let me love you even more.

Let the treasures of the trial
Form within me as I go-
An at the end of this long passage,
Let me leave them at Your throne.

Lifting you all up hourly...blessing and prayers!

Praying!!!thank you for keeping us updated, I check your blog two to three times a day and sometimes more then that but I am continually in prayer for your family and that the strength of God and His goodness will envelope you, that you have a peace that surpasses all understanding and that the comforter will take up residence in that hospital room.

Praise God for His Mercy ...

Thank You Jesus for taking care of the family & answering prayers as they come to You.
Thank You for bringing the levels down in the temple that serves You already .. baby Isaac's body. May you continue to lay blessings of healing and comfort to sweet boy. And may you continue to lay your hand of strength on Jordan & Patience while they stand aside to let you do Your work & show Your Glory to all. You are our caring & everlasting Father & we Thank You for all You do.
May You fill everyone with peace and tranquility during the high peaks of the ride. Thank You Lord for Your Unfailing Love.
Jordan, Patience -- I know its tough during the difficult times. And with that all I can think about & what comes to me from the good Book is Psalm 130: Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord; O Lord, Hear my voice. Let Your ears be attentive to my cry for mercy.
The two of you are doing an AWESOME job of being earthly parents to God's child. My prayers are continual for all of you and I will be so tearfully (in awe of God & happiness for you all of course) rejoicing the day you all get to bring sweet baby boy Isaac to church. Until then, may His blessing pour down on you all.

God bless you guys. All I have to contribute is yet another poem... I hope this brings some peace. God gave it to me a year ago... For right now; I think.

Windy Night

When dark was darker,
Light was thin
And I was fearing for the wind.
An inward eye turned I; within.
I saw God’s light
His love prevail!
In deeper night HIS boat did sail
In rest was he…
His calm in me
That ever inward eye can see
No fear tonight
With HIM… In me.

Patience & Jordan,
You don't me, but our family was asked to pray for Isaac by Karen Dawkins. Up here in Ohio, we are checking your blog and continuing to pray. I love the song, "Blessed Be Your Name." When the darkness closes in, blessed be His glorious name. Praying for peace, healing, energy, strength -- all gifts from our glorious God. In Him,
- the Haller family, Ohio
