Never question a parent on their decision! why read on

Nate and I had decided that a spinal tap was unnecessary and would actually cause too much stress on little Isaac and possibly cause some brain bleeds. Well after 3 days of being nagged that there might be spinal meningitis and that would cause more brain damage than a bleed. We caved and well the test results came back negative for any fungus and bacteria so in the end it was unnecessary and a waste of time and money. Nate and I had faith that what they are calling pneumonia wasn't as bad as they thought. Isaac is doing wonderfully and is getting milk again his blood pressure is great and steady, his oxygen level is being weaned off and the vent settings are getting lower every day. Praise God all without steroids and he is proving to be a miracle baby.

    We are so happy for Issac. Ya'll keep up the good work. Continue listening to God and asking Him about all your decisions. He has been guiding and directing you on what is needed for Issac's health. That said, I'm gonna post a few verses from one of my favorite chapters in the Bible. This has comforted me in times past, when all prayers have been said and repeated until you don't know what to pray anymore. Read the whole thing when you get some time, especially halfway thru to the end.

    Romans 8:26-28

    "Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities; for we know not what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. And He that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because He maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God. And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose."

    So, the Holy Spirit, who lives within you, speaks on your behalf to the Father when you don't know what to say to Him.

    We're praying for you guys! :)
