Update from Caring Bridge - Day 2

MONDAY, APRIL 2, 2012 2:20 PM, CDT

" will cry for help, and he will say:  Here I am." Is 58:9

There are only a few things to report right now - some encouraging and some discouraging - that seems to be how it goes.

Swelling - we've seen a slight decrease in swelling (critical in the first 72 hours) but there is pressure even on the uninjured side - the midline doesn't look so hot right now.

Vitals - temps, blood pressure, heart rate - all responding to medicine, but not stable on their own.  They were able to bring his temp down within range with the cooling therapy.

Responsiveness - Matt is not "presenting well," as they put it.  

Please pray.

Molly asks for prayer for wisdom on how to protect Harper this week - she IS enjoying her new Barbie horse...but pray for healthy sleep and her stress level while Daddy is sick.  

We will post a prayer guide right before the gathering today (4pm) for those of you who can't be here in person.

The whole family is overwhelmed and encouraged by your prayers. Thank you ALL for your comments and emails and offers of help.  We are tracking it all and will let you know when practical needs can be taken care of.  Meal planning, schedules, links and things from the family will always originate from THIS (caring bridge) site.  You will not miss an opportunity to help!  See our "My Story" tab for more information.
