I believe I witnessed a miracle today. Yesterday, Samuel was not doing well. His biggest risk is respiratory issues right now. He has aspirated so much that he could easily have gotten pneumonia over the past month, and that is serious.  On Saturday his high fever and congestion in his lungs started.  I immediately knew the signs (of aspiration pneumonia) and started an antibiotic and steroid immediately. He started to do better by late Saturday afternoon. Sunday he was ok. But on Monday his fever became much worse.  His little body is so worn out and we were not sure if he was strong enough to fight it. We spread the word and so many were praying for him.
  Last night at bedtime his fever started to drop and in the night he was cooler! By this morning he had no fever and his lungs sounded much better!!! Even though he was up alot in the night, I think he just wanted to sleep in Mommy and Daddys bed (pictured below.. Happy boy)! He has even been more like himself today!
  His neurologist had ordered a CT scan and Samuel actually feel asleep and they were able to get a quick picture of his brain and he had no idea! You see, usually he is very wiggly and would have probably become upset, but he slept!!!
  So today, I believe I witnessed 2 miracles. He always hears us and always answers, but sometimes its not what we want. I am thankful today for the prayers of the saints and Him answering our request! It was good to take a breather today! God is good, all the time. All the time God is good.

Psalm 23:1-6

”The LORD is my shepherd,
I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside quiet waters. He restores my soul;
He guides me in the paths of righteousness
For His name's sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I fear no evil, for You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You have anointed my head with oil;
My cup overflows. Surely goodness and lovingkindness will follow me all the days of my life,
And I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.”

So thankful that he slept during the CT scan! That was amazing! And how he woke up as we left the hospital, not even realizing what had happened, I would definitely call that a miracle.
