This was posted earlier on Asher's site! I couldn't have said it any better....
Praise the Lord, Asher DOES NOT HAVE CYSTIC FIBROSIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
To celebrate, here is psalm 148:
"Praise the LORD from the heavens, praise him in the heights above.
Praise him, all his angels, praise him, all his heavenly hosts.
Praise him, sun and moon, praise him, all you shining stars.
Praise him, you highest heavens and you waters above the skies. Let them praise the name of the LORD for he commanded and they were created.
He set them in place for ever and ever; he gave a decree that will never pass away.
Praise the LORD from the earth, you great sea creatures and all ocean depths,
lightning and hail, snow and clouds, stormy winds that do his bidding,
you mountains and all hills, fruit trees and all cedars,
wild animals and all cattle, small creatures and flying birds,
kings of the earth and all nations, you princes and all rulers on earth,
young men and maidens, old men and children.
Let them praise the name of the LORD, for his name alone is exalted; his splendor is above the earth and the heavens.
He has raised up for his people a horn, the praise of all his saints, of Israel, the people close to his heart.
Praise the LORD."
We couldn't feel more blessed!
Aside from this exciting news, another important piece of information is that Asher will be transferred back to Mercy tomorrow. Please pray for a good transfer. We are not anticipating another surgery for a while, so we don't have to worry about this. They anticipate him going home on the ostomy, so he can grow bigger and stronger before fixing his intestines. Also, they are not worried about the kidney levels, as they think the levels are off because of nutrition issues. Please pray this is correct and he has happy kidneys!
Also, Asher is up to 70%, which they say he is compensating for the lowered vent settings, but it still makes us a little nervous. Please pray this goes down.
Heather is going to head out to cuddle her little monkey even though she is feeling really sick. She wants to make sure she gets this in just in case she is unable to for a while after the transfer.
THANK YOU SO MUCH for your prayers. God is certainly answering them one by one. We couldn't be more grateful that God has blessed us with such amazing prayer warriors!!
