Much Better....

Beau is doing much better today!  Jessica said that the doctor actually called Beau a "Phoenix" this morning and was very surprised that they didn't have to end up putting him on a ventilator.  They are giving him a break from the CPAP today for a few hours and are going to be weaning him off of it until tomorrow.  He will probably be in the ICU for 3 or 4 more days until he gets rid of the pneumonia.  He will also have to remain on IV antibiotics for the next 3 weeks because of the E-coli.  They have some kind of home care program so that he will be able to leave the hospital before that three weeks is up and still get the IV antibiotics.  We're not sure at this point what this is going to mean for his last round of chemo.  He was supposed to start it next week sometime but I don't know what they will decide to do about that.  Thanks again so much for all of the kind comments, thoughts and prayers for Beau.  Y'all have made this ordeal a bit better by sticking with us through it all.

All of us are praying continuously! Hundreds are praying. We are so thankful that the Dr.'s have pinpointed the bacteria. We keep praying that Jesus will be Beau's white blood cells.

We pray for Jeanne, Buster, Seth, Maggie, Daniel and Jessica too.
