Andrew had a tiring but good first night. He is real tired and will hopefully get more rest throughout the day- but is telling us (through the breathing tube) "I will fight this" "I will beat this". We are so proud of him!!! He started exercising his arms and it sounds like he's got the right attitude.
However, we need prayers more than ever for the spinal cord injury that Andrew received. We need to pray for a miracle- pray so that he can be able to wiggle his toes. An injury like Andrew's leaves little chance for walking so we need a miracle. People have been pouring in their support, and that is so important- so thank you everyone.
Also- the nurses will slowly begin to decrease the breathing support throughout the morning. If everything goes well and Andrew is able to breath on his own, we should have him tube free by this afternoon- which will be so wonderful for him. PRAY PRAY PRAY!
