Lukeyoder's Blog

Just another weblog

Friday Morning

I (Sheila) was privileged to spend the night again with Luke, Phil and I and our girls drove up yesterday from FL  its great to be back!!   Luke had a restful and peaceful night!  His temperature stayed down and ICPs continued to remain very low.  Since they put the G-tube in they were able to take out his feeding tube that was in his mouth.  Also last night they removed his central line.  Its great to see some of the mass of tubes and cords disappearing!  

We are still praying for his sodium levels to slowly come down they remain  too high right now, 145 would be great!  But it is important that it comes down slowly.   We are also hoping that his ICP monitor (bolt) will be able to come out today, they said there is a possibility.  We have seen God answer SO many prayers this past week and believe He will finish the work He has begun in Luke.  Thank you all again for your outpouring of prayers for Luke and the family!

  8. Continuing to hold precious Luke up to our Father for His healing–especially today to bring those sodium levels down–and to give you, Ben and Lindsey, strength and confidence in God’s care. Barbi

  9. Ben, Lindsey and family, I just stumbled across your blog yesterday. I was praying this morning for his fever to come down and then when I pulled the computer up and read that it had, praise the Lord! We’ll continue to pray healing for your little guy but also that God would give you two strength to fight satan’s attacks of worry, fear and dis-trust. Our God is a mighty God, and He IS mighty to save!

  10. I heard the voice of Jesus say come unto me and rest. Lay down thou weary one,lay down thy head upon my breast. I came to Jesus as I was, weary and worn and sad. I found in Him a resting place, And He has made me glad. Ben and Lindsey, you must be weary, worn and sad, but we are so grateful for healing that is taking place even if it is slow.We look forward to more reports of good progress being made.

  11. We are continuing to pray throughout the days–there are so many little things in life that remind me to pray for Luke, even though I’ve never met him! It’s such an encouragement to hear how your family is supporting one another through this. My prayer is that Luke will astound the doctors with the rate at which he recovers, and that God would grant a super-natural peace to Ben and Lindsey. May God be glorified! In Christ, Nelle

  12. I pray the Lord will continue to bless you and keep you, and make his face shine upon you, and give you peace (all of you).

    Looking forward to getting my “pray 4 Luke” wristband to be delivered via my daughter – Lori Hatter.

  13. This morning I was reading in Luke 11 and verse 9 really spoke to me …Jesus tells us “so I say to you keep asking, and it will be given to you. Keep searching and you will find. Keep knocking and the door will be opened to you.For EVERYONE who asks receives, and the one who searches finds, and to the one who knocks the door will be opened.” So we will KEEP ASKING SEEKING AND KNOCKING !! To GOD be the Glory ! love bill & deb

  15. Praise God that the cause of his fever was found quickly and has been addressed. We have been praying for Luke and also the entire family. We picked up our wrist bands yesterday from BRCC where we attend church and my kids Sydney (6) and Kaden (3) have put them on their ankles to remind them throughout the day to pray for Luke. You are in our thoughts and prayers. Lean on the Lord our God, he will carry you. Last Nights devotional with my kids was about the Lord carrying your heavy load. God knows your worries are too heavy for you, he’ll carry them all so that you can be free. God Bless you all. with Love, Stacey and Kevin Bowles

  16. We continue to pray for Luke. THere is a wonderful song called “soldier without Armor” that was written for a friend of mine whose daughter had cancer and when I pray for Luke I am always reminded of the song. It talks about being strong and leaning on friends in times of need.
    Lean your friends including your cyber friends. Everyone is raising you up and praying for you. It has been wonderful to see God answer the prayer of the people as Luke recovers.

    In Gods love

  18. As I was driving home from town today I was listening to the CD from Bible school and I was just remembering all the times I have watched Carson and Luke play together. They play so good together yes of coarse they have there tiffs sometimes, but for the most part they love and enjoy eachother so much. I fully believe in my heart that very soon I will be watching them play again. Luke is such a great kid so sweet and tender. He is always so good with Savannah also. I have so enjoyed helping take care of your kids while you all are there. They have got to be the two easiest kids there are, they listen so well and are really a joy to have around, and Carson and Savannah love it. I am so happy that things are looking up today, I know there are even better days ahead. Love you guys, Shea
