BJ is on a new air mattress (Lisa R.), designed to help with his bedsores. His Sat's are in the 90's, and the support settings have been turned down a bit. We give all Glory and Praise to Christ our Savior for what he has afforded BJ today. He has fought hard, and his numbers didn't waiver during invasive procedures. Nurse Diana said, "I want to cry cause he did really good!"

The Prayers from around the world have been heard in the Throneroom, and God is in control. Our rejoicing is clearly tempered with sorrow in the loss of Jayden, and the pain his family is suffering. We know that God has a plan for them, and will love them and comfort them through this.

Tomorrow morning (probably 10ish) he will have a catheter surgically added to his upper chest for dialysis to begin again.

We pray for a restful night after a tough day for him. We pray for no more complications, ie. clotting, infections, bleeding, continued renal failure. But we are tremendously grateful for a victorious day. With the canulas out, he has a better chance of healing.

Your prayer support has blessed our hearts...Thank you.

Praise God for the new technology for bed sores! I can't even imagine him laying in the same position for all this time and what it has done to him. God bless you today, tonight and always.

Just wanted to let you know that we will continue to lift Jayden's mommy and daddy before the throne... We pray that you will be an encouragement to them in this difficult time.

Glad to hear about the air mattress! Hopefully, it will allow Beej's body to heal quickly on the outside... We'll be praying tomorrow at 10ish that the insertion of the new catheter will go well.

Hope that you all have a restful night. Today has probably exhausted you!

Goodnight!

We love you loads.

Thank you that little Jayden is resting peacefully and out of pain in the precious arms of Jesus. May that same Jesus give peace and comfort to his hurting Mommie and Daddy. They continue to be in my prayers.

Brent, Deanna and Girls, I continue to pray for your stamina and strength to meet the demands of an extended hospital stay. I pray that you all will be able to get some much needed rest. May tonight be very uneventful for BJ and may his body continue to fight and function as it should. I thank God for the many dedicated people that He has positioned around you to meet all of BJ's many needs.
Our God is an awesome God...He is more than worthy to be praised!!

May God fill your night with rest and peace as we, your prayer warriors, keep praying diligently for you all.

Brent, Deanna, Lauren and Whitney,

We were so excited to hear how each procedure seemed to go the very best it could have gone!

Hopefully BJ will sleep like a baby on his new air mattress!

We're so sorry to hear about Jayden. We wrote something in response to your message about him.

In our class tonight at NBC, it was interesting to hear from a few different people how so much of their day is connected to your messages. Like us, they check as often as possible for any update. There was a universal sense of constant urgency, so that whenever someone is gone from home for more than an hour or two, they feel eager to get back to the computer and check in.

Maybe that's a little wierd to you guys, but it might just give you a little insight to how this global "fisherman's net" has been woven and continues to grow. Imagine this net being used by the Great Fisherman to catch a mighty load of fish in the future! Pretty Awesome!

Matthew 4:19 "Come, follow me," Jesus said, "and I will make you fishers of men."

We are so thankful and grateful to be able to participate in this great assembly of loving and pleading believers.

Praying tonight for your rest and BJ's.

In Him,

Jamie

Thank you so much for continuing to keep us updated and giving us such specific things to pray for. We continue to "pray without ceasing" for BJ's healing and for wisdom beyond human understanding for the doctors and all who attend him.

Please let Jayden's family know we pray for them and hurt with them. When I lost my first son in stillbirth 23 years ago this month, the Lord had already given me a verse which became a promise for that son and a charge to me for raising my future children: "I would that you were wise in what is good and innocent in what is evil."

Whenever I hear of another child or baby who goes home to heaven, I picture my son among the welcoming crowd gaining a new friend and taking him around heaven's streets to make him feel welcome. And oh, the joy and comfort of knowing we shall be reunited some day!

I pray God will wrap His "arms" around this grieving family and be their comfort and peace.

"Praise be to the God and Father...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." II Cor. 1:3-4

As we arrive home from church and read about Jayden I just can't stop thinking of how his parents must ache for him and how that ache will be along time healing. We are working thru a series right now with Jr. High students called Life Hurts, God Heals and tonight I could only think of and pray for you all, but, mostly Jayden and his family was on my heart. I will continue to pray for each of you... And Praise our heavenly Father for the victorious day for the Higgins family and pray for the broken hearts of the other family..
May this all be used for God's glory..

Psalm 40:1-2, 11-13
I waited patiently for the Lord to help me, and he turned to me and heard my cry. 2He lifted me out of the pit of despair,out of the mud and the mire. He set my feet on solid ground and steadied me as I walked along.

11Lord, don't hold back your tender mercies from me. My only hope is in your unfailing love and faithfullness. 12For troubles surround me-too many to count!
They pile up so high I can't see my way out.They are more numerous
then the hairs on my head. I have lost all courage.13 Please, Lord, rescue me! come quickly, Lord, and help me.

Lord we praise you for this day and pray for a restful night for BJ, his family and may you send your love and peace into the hearts of baby Jayden's family...
Thank You Gracious Father Amen

We'll check in tomorrow..

Dear Higgins Family, We are so thankful for the awesome, incredible, amazing way that God once again showed Himself strong on behalf of BJ today. He did the same for Jayden, of course--it's just that the results appear different from our perspective. We will continue praying for both families.

As I rest tonight, I will remember BJ on his brand new mattress and continue lifting up his needs. Behold, God is doing a new thing--wouldn't He love it if every single doctor, nurse, RT, etc. was just blown out by how amazingly He is working in BJ's life?! Come to think of it (from the various postings I've read), looks like a good number already are! Thank you, St. Vincent's people (medical and otherwise) who read these postings--you have such an important work there. Thanks for being there (something few of us posting can do).

God, You truly are indescribable, unexplainable. We pray that You will continue to work in BJ's body, in his spirit, in his life in such a way as to bring glory to none other than Yourself. We KNOW BJ is all about that--giving glory to you. Thank you for choosing him for this tremendous sacrifice of praise. God, let his body functions continue and improve. Keep him safe during the procedure tomorrow, and don't allow the Enemy to have so much as a hangnail-hold anywhere near this guy. He belongs to You--as do we, who pray in your name,

Amen.

I am praying much for each of you as you have truly put your individual lives on hold to deal with this unexpected event that will change the life of your family forever. You are displaying the strength of a family built solidly on Jesus Christ!! He is being exalted through you and He will continue to do so in all the years to follow! He has GREAT THINGS in store for B.J. ~ He has already used his life in tremendous ways, and will continue to do so, even with greater fervor. Many have and will continue to come to know Christ through BJ's witness - before his illness, through his illness, and once he is well and able to do the thing he loves most . . . share Jesus with others. It's all amazing!!

Good night Brent & Deanna,

What a long day! So thankful that the procedures went well for BJ and also heartbroken about Jayden.
I know when we were at Riley Hosp. with Kim both times, we felt guilty at times that she had a good outcome while other children did not. I guess it is just having faith that God is in control and has a plan, though we may not understand it. It is hard to comprehend sometimes. We will definitely keep Jayden's family in our prayers for days to come. Of course we are praying without ceasing for the upcoming procedures for BJ and his continued recovery. We are continuing to lift you, Deanna and the girls up for your continued strength, health and peace. I am glad BJ is finally on an appropriate bed, that was worrying me! Larry can testify to that! (It is the home care nurse in me).
Hope you have a restful night and that tomorrow goes well. Take care.

Love, Nancy

Just remember 1 Corinthians 10:13 = "No temptation has ever siezed that is not common to man. God will not tempt you beyond what you are capable of."
I just found out that a 10 year old boy I took care for the last few summers got run over by a car and only by the grace of God is he still alive. I live in Atlanta and he in Miami. Next week I'm visiting him (I'd visit him this weekend but I have a retreat in which I need God to prepare me for when I see him next week). I myslef have had to endure some medical problems myself: I was born with 1 kidney, I had a collapsed lung and I had a hemoglobin count of 5.9 (it was supposed to be around 14 for my age). I just look at Proverbs 3:5-6 = "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding but acknowledge him in all your ways and he will direct your paths". The way I look at, our lives are in his hands and I wouldn't have it any other way. I don't know what lies ahead, but I can assure you of this: whatever it is, as long as it God's will and by doing it I will further God's kingdom, bring it on. This world has nothing to offer me. I await the moment in time when I am reunited with my Father in Heaven, but until that point, I have to adhere to whatever he asks of me and wake up everyone to the same question: God, what do you want of me today? I only want to praise you, but I know I will never have the words and will never do enough to begin to eran myself into heaven. It's your saving grace and your never-ending love that covers me which allows me to be here now and I just pray that with every moment that passes, with every breathe I take, I am doing all I can to make much of you. My hearts desire is to do His, whatever it might be. It's my prayer that you haven't lost hope (Romans 8:24 = Hope that is seen is no hope at all. For who hopes for in what they already have?). For keeping your faith through the struggles = Hebrews 11:6 says "For without faith it is impossible to please God, because everyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him." Thanks and God bless.

I am so touched and encouraged by all the people that God has surrounded you with and those I know that you are making a difference in their lives as well. God is going to use you powerfully through this experience, more than you may ever know. You will ALL be in our prayers as well as those taking care of BJ and others around you. Please pass it on to those around you that a lot of people are praying for them as well.

Lord, please use us. Please let us be your arms that wrap around Jayden's mom and dad to hold them up when it is just to much for them to stand. Please let us be your shoulder that they can shed their tears on as they try to keep the pain from destoying them. Lord, let us be there just to listen without trying to take away there pain for it is only you Father that has that healing power. I pray that Jayden's mom, dad, and family members would allow this devasting loss bring them closer to you instead of away from you.

Thank you Father for your authority over Beej's body and life. Please bring him back to us. Let his life be a walking, talking testamony of who you are in the life of a beleiver in You. We love you Father.
