Update on Carlos

Dear Prayer Warriors,

Your prayers are very effective. Yesterday morning when I arrived at the hospital we had some rather disconcerting news. One the "numbers" on Carlos was slowing climbing and the doctors had to make a decision as to whether or not they should take Carlos in for a procedure to administer a drug to prevent his left artery in the brain from having vasospasms. They felt that he was getting into a danger zone for possible stroke.

To say the least, this was discouraging for all of us.

We began to talk about the reality that faith is believing what we cannot see.

And suddenly, the situation was not so frightening.

Late that afternoon, the doctors did in fact take Carlos in for the procedure. They were in the operating room for a long time.

Almost 2 hours.

When they came out, they explained that they had taken so long because they could not see any sign of vasospasms and no sign that his artery was constricting.

Bibi immediately pointed to the fact that the Lord can do whatever He wills.

I agree.

Seeing is not believing. Believing is believing.

Today, we have had some wonderful news. For the first time, Carlos was able to squeeze the hand of the nurse and move the toes on both feet when the nurse commanded him to. That is a huge step.

Thank you again for your continued prayers. They have already been effectual. Please don't get weary!

Abril said to tell all of you how appreciative and touched that people who don't even know her would spend time in prayer and petition for her family! She sends her love and thanks!
