The power of prayer is a good thing! Alex had a great night last night. Let me back up...Alex started having diarrhea again yesterday. Finally late yesterday afternoon Dr. Rhoads our GI decided to drop Alex's feeds to 10 cc's/hr. Low and behold the poops stopped (which I knew they would) and not only that but his ammonia levels dropped by half over night. Alex slept from 9 last night until 10:30 this morning. He had a great day. He finished up his EEG around 1:30. He had Physical Therapy around 2:00 and then played football in the hall wiht his nurse and a few doctors for a little while. By the time 3:30 rolled around and we gave him a bath and hooked his TPN and feeds back up he was wiped put. He was sound asleep by 5:00! I asume he will sleep until around 6:00 tomorrow morning.

We have been so lucky to have our favorite nurses caring for us day after day. It makes our days so much more enjoyable to have people we like surrounding us.

The weekend is once again upon us and that is always hard. The days seem so long when there are no doctors or tests to break it up. Alex and Landon are gettting there haircut on Sunday afternoon so that should be good.

Thanks for keeping us in your thoughts and prayers.
