Off the Ventilator!

Wes just provided this update and wanted to pass along. "Today was about the same as yesterday. He did get the ventilator removed which is good news. For now he will still keep a small tube coming out of his scalp to maintain a safe pressure in the head and will not get a shunt. The surgeons have decided that his white blood count would drop too low with another surgery right now and that chemo needs to move on by Thursday. They will watch him closely on Thursday to make sure he can clear the chemo this time. Thanks for the prayers."

I have received so many loving comments, testimonies, prayers and scriptures of encouragement for Nate, Wes and Jackie. I forward each one to Wes and know that these words mean a great deal to them, more than any of us know. Please continue to share your testimonies and words of encouragement for the Oxfords throughout this time. (2 Cor 1:3-4 NIV) Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, {4} who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.
