Pierce had a pretty rough night and morning. His vitals kept dropping, indicating that his lungs weren't tolerating the oscillator (type of ventilator he was on) and that he was fighting an infection. The lab report came back confirming that he indeed does have an infection. Doctors feel confident that the antibiotics can control this. However, they told us that the biggest concern is that Pierce's lungs are just too immature. There is really nothing that they can do to help this. Please, please pray that God will touch Pierce's lungs and that they will be able to withstand this battle. It appears that today will be one of those hour-by-hour, sometimes minute-by-minute days where we sit at his bedside and hope and pray. Please join us in praying for healing for our son. We are trusting that God is going to continue working miracles through Pierce's life and that He will grant us strength to make it through today.
Lindsay, Nik and Pierce
