God continues to bring us great nurses and caretakers. We just spent the last couple of hours visiting Pierce (new pic with his eyes open below!) and talking with his nurses this shift, Andi and Laura. They are amazing and are giving him the best care. The next few days are crucial for Pierce. Right now, he has enough potassium in his body to stop his heart. Because of the need to regulate many other factors, there is no way for them to bring it down manually at this time. His sodium is high too. Continue to pray for him in this, it is working. His electrolytes are only one of many hurdles he is going to have to go through over the next few days. God is good, we have faith as we sit in this darkness.
Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God's love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.
