What a day! Noah is intubated and his lung has reinflated. He is awake and alert, though on pain meds. He is breathing more breaths than the respirator, so that is a good sign. He is pink again, too! Thank you so much for your prayers, everyone! Some more to put on the list...Noah has never had a fever and is a bit warm tonight, so please pray for his body to rid itself of the fever. The docs also want to do another MRI to see what his white matter looks like-if it's changed, stayed the same or progressed. We are praying for a clear exam. The CDC and the hospital here are doing further tests on Noah's stools, urine samples, mucous, running more blood tests for heavy metal toxins, bacterias, viruses...basically, when three batches of lab mice die, they start running some serious tests...there are antidotes for some of these, so please pray for total healing for Noah Steven, Crowned in Peace.

We are in constant awe of God's hand on our son and His grace for our family. You are all such a blessing to us! We are so grateful for your love and support. Jason and I are spending the night with Noah tonight, continually praying over him.

    Just a note to let you know we will pray for you all and Noah. Reading over the last couple of weeks for you sounds like it has been overwhelming and scary! We will pray for quick miracles and healing, wisdom and disernment for the doctors and other professionals and strength, peace and perseverance for you all. Press on & blessings, Jackie and Mark Reitsma (friends of Brian Zibell)

    Jason, Adrienne, and family,
    As you are slowly getting some answers this scripture came to mind for little Noah:

    Isaiah 58:8

    Then your light shall break forth like the morning, your
    healing shall spring forth speedily, and your righteousness
    shall go before you; the glory of the Lord shall be your rear
    guard.
    God Bless you all,
    Robb and Teresa
