Peaks & Valleys

Since we first traveled to Florida on April 19th to today we have experienced many highs and lows on this roller coaster that we've been on.

Last Friday was one of the highest peaks that we've experienced and we thank you for celebrating with us.

Because we know many people are praying for Gaby, we want to bring you into the picture of where Gaby is today.

Gaby continues to hold her own off ECMO. She looks great and it is awesome to see her in other positions, other than flat on her back.

She is holding her own, but right now, her own isn't enough. Gaby's lungs are still in bad shape. They are very clear (for Gaby), but her lungs are severely damanged from the lung disease that she has and the abuse that she has taken from the virus and ventilator support.

She is off of ECMO, but remains on the ventilator and the ventilator is on very high settings. The goal is the wean her off the ventilator, but since being off ECMO, they have actually had to increase her ventilator support.

The bottom line is Gaby's lungs need to show remarkable improvement in order for her to ever breathe on her own again. The doctors are doing everything they can, but we still rely on God's hand for her healing.


  1. ...and we will continue to pray

  2. God is still very much in the miracle business. Remember all those cool miracles that Jesus did while he hung around on earth? He tells us in John 14 that "He will do even greater things than these..." We are praying that a miracle is His will! B&B

  3. I will be praying for you guys. Never give up hope. Gaby is in God's healing hands.

    Love and Prayers,
