Another Strong Night

I don't have any real news to share this morning, except that Zane has had another strong night. His vital signs remain strong and his oxygen support is down to 40%, which is the lowest they go. The cultures of his blood, urine, and sputum that they sent out continue to show no infection thus far.

Praise God for uneventful nights. Each one we get is a HUGE blessing. We know just how precious they are after Thursday night's events. One of these days I might just leave the hospital and sleep in a real bed. :) Our God is so, so faithful.

I was able to go into his room late last night and spend some time with him. It was such a special time. I thought about what he might want to hear, and Amazing Grace came to mind. He loved that song. I figured that if I were in a coma, I wouldn't want to hear myself singing, so I hummed several verses of Amazing Grace. And isn't it true? God's grace truly is amazing. He's poured out huge amounts of it over the past 5 days. We pray for continued grace to go through this time, and for continued healing for Zane.

Each day is a miracle, and we are so privileged to be able to witness so many acts of God.

I'm a new reader, and I just have to say that you have so much grace and are so strong. You and your husband are so similar to me and mine, that it just breaks my heart to read your struggles. We are praying for you every day! I hope he has a speedy recovery and your life goes on as planned, as you deserve it to. Much love

Courtney,
Your wedding pictures were the first pictures I saw of Lauren's, and I kept looking at them again and again because you are such a cute couple and family! I know I have never met you, but being such a small community in Aroostook County, I have seen you at sporting events, or even at Walmart....you seem to have a love for life, and you are so positive during this time....I have been praying for you daily....stay strong :)

Dear Courtney,

Many are praying for Zane, you and the family during this time. Thank you so much for the updates. You are such a blessing and a reflection of the strength the Lord gives us during difficult times. God is using you mightily!!! My friends in Arizona and Kansas are continually praying as my church family here in Maine. I am praying for you to be able to get the needed rest you need during this time as well. So happy to hear about the progress that Zane is showing. We do have an amazing God! Take care of yourself.....praying also for Zane's doctors for amazing wisdom from the Lord.....God bless...Lorraine (Maine)
