Joel with his birthday card, March 7, 2014

We’ve received word that our insurance will not be covering a medical flight.  So in order to get home, we’ll need to assume the risk of a commercial flight with Joel and our kids.  The hospital is taking care of arrangements for special oxygen supplies.  Unfortunately, that equipment takes time to acquire and so we’re looking at having it delivered to the hospital tomorrow by noon.  This means we will likely be on a 6:30 evening flight tomorrow night.
Please play that Joel remains stable, that his lungs are clear, and that he will not need more intervention than we can provide via our lone oxygen tank tomorrow on the flight.
Of course, most of all we ask that you pray for a creative miracle in the land of the living. One that destroys this monster in his body and restores what it has stolen from our little boy.

    Can’t say it enough- we are praying, praying, and praying again! May the God of Life and Wholeness give Joel the Breath of Life and allow his lungs to breathe freely. I claim the strength of Holy Spirit to rest upon each of you as you travel home to Colorado. We are all very excited to see you!! Love you guys.

    I’m also going to pray that someone who has the medical training that would be needed if there were a problem on the flight, is seated near you. And that you know that they are there so you don’t feel worried as you travel. I wonder if you could even ask the flight attendants to ask if there is a nurse or physician on board and ask to have them reseated near you? Anyway–you all are deep in my heart today.

    Happy Birthdat Joel. I’ll be praying for a safe fight home to Colorado, and a miracle for your healing.
