Praise the Lord! Cornelius is doing much better. He has been doing very well with eating breastmilk through his feeding tube. He is more active and has even been opening his eyes to peek about from time to time.

Today the Doctor wants to “make him work”. They will be changing to a less assistive breathing system. We will be increasing his feeding to triple what he is currently getting, and if he tolerates that Sarah may even be able to breastfeed by this evening. It is great to see him shedding equipment.

We are hopeful that we will be able to bring him home next week. Please continue to pray for his healing and also fo our witness here. Between the staff and other parents, we have had several opportunities to share the Lord.
