Samuel's right lung (the one with the PIE) has continued to get worse. The doctors have him on his right side so that lung will collapse and heal. The left lung (the one that has the hole in it) is doing all of the work right now. Samuel is on 100% oxygen, the highest oxygen setting. He is also close to the top on all of the other settings as well.
They have put in yet another iv into his scalp. They are giving him blood and he looks very swollen. His poor little face is hardly recognizable. His blood pressure is low right now. They are hoping that the blood will help that as well.
It's like all of his body functions are connected - one thing is wrong and it causes something else to go wrong. It seems to make treating the individual things very difficult.

    > NO, WE REBUKE this in the Name of Jesus................Samuel is a gift from God, Samuel has been a miracle created for Sarah and Michael. Samuel was given to a young lady that is a walking miracle, that YOU, God healed
    from Cancer and the Dr. said she would never be able to have Children. Lord, You gave her this miracle. We know that YOU have a plan and a purpose for this baby and for his parents, Lord and we ask right now that you give them all STRENGTH!! So many things we don't understand but LORD we trust your word and it will not return unto you VOID and we have been praying the
    WORD over Samuel and Sarah and Michael, Lord we are expecting this baby to be completely healed from head to toe and every little thing in between and that Samuel will be a very normal active baby,little boy, teenager and
    grown man that will be a turned on Christian that will Serve you all the days of his life and that his life may be long so that he may tell everyone of the miracle that he is. Lord we pray fro strength for Sarah and Michael and Peace for them. We pray that you will give their body the rest that it needs and keep them healthy while they are waiting for this miracle to be complete. We pray for Grandmas and Grandpas of Samuel , that they will have strength and encouragement and peace to give their children and Samuel. We give you the Honor, the Praise and the GLORY LORD for this family.
    > In JESUS name, amen.
