Saturday Evening Update

Thanks so much for your continued prayers on the Davis family's behalf! This morning Eric was temporarily brought out of sedation without having another attack and was able to respond to his family through hand squeezes and head motions. I'm sure you can imagine the elation of his wife and older children who were able to communicate with him! He is back under sedation now and resting.

Eric continues to be in the local hospital while they await an open room at the Palo Alto VA facility.

Items to pray for:
-Please pray for wisdom for the doctors and that the underlying cause of Eric's situation will be determined so appropriate treatment can begin.
-Pray that the transport to Palo Alto would occur without incident.
-Pray for strength for Heather as she continues to comfort Eric at the hospital and parent her children at home.

Join us in thanking the Lord for:
-the opportunity for Eric to interact with his family
-the provision of a small car for Heather to use when Eric is moved to Palo Alto
-the safe arrival of Heather's parents and Eric's sister to help care for the children and offer support to Heather
-the outpouring of offers of help from so many people, including those who haven't ever met the Davis family

For the time being, I'll be updating the blog so you can get updates without Heather feeling the pressure of needing to get to the computer. Heather is so thankful for your prayers!
