I think it's safe to say we've entered a "hurry up and wait" phase of Zane's recovery. We had an uneventful day today, but uneventful is good. All Zane's vitals are stable, but he is still having the fevers. His blood cultures are still not showing any infection, so the doctors are thinking the fevers are just due to the hyperdynamic state his body is in. They decided to try and help him break it by putting cooling blankets underneath and on top of him. When we went in to see him this evening, the fever had broken and his temp was down to 98.6. They've also switched up his medication to make him less delusional and less agitated. He's been pretty out of it when he wakes up, sometimes having hallucinations & mouthing the same thing over & over. He's been trying to move around in bed and get his legs off the side of it. Hopefully the change in meds will calm him down some. They're still taking him off the vent for a few hours per day & letting him breathe on his own.
Zane's mom asked if I would invite everyone to participate in a time of prayer for Zane (& specifically, his back) tomorrow night. If you'd like to, please join us in praying for him at 7pm tomorrow (10.26.10). We'll flood heaven with prayers & claim healing for his body. We believe that prayer is powerful and that thousands of God's people praying at once will have miraculous results. Thank you so much.
