Today is Garren's birthday. The nurse asked me how we were feeling about it being Garren's birthday. I said "We're glad he's here to celebrate it." And we are.
I've heard from several of you that you had prayed specifically for small responses from Garren. And yesterday we did see several small responses. Praise God.
One of the responses the doctors have been looking for from day 1 is a cough, or gag. He has a breathing tube that goes down his throat. Periodically they suction his airways. We do this naturally, often without thinking about it, when we cough. Today, while suctioning, the respiratory therapist saw a slight cough. Praise God for another very small response.
Thank you for continuing to pray. I look forward to seeing some of you today as we celebrate the big '14.'
Happy Birthday Garren!
