Once again, we find ourselves on the eve of canula removal. As we understand it, the 2 surgeons will remove all 3 canulas (tubes), add 2 catheters, and repair a torn vein. Clotting will be a potential side affect, and a potentially serious one.

BJ's abdomen began to bleed this afternoon, after Heprin was restarted. It has diminished, but they do not know why he is bleeding. We have not heard results of the HIT test, but they still believe he does not have it. His numbers are stable this evening, and his blood gases (PO2) reached 72 after spending most of the day in the 50's. Praise Jesus! Sat's still in the low 90's!! Glory to God!!!

I thought it might be appropriate on the eve of such a critical event to share a prayer from BJ's journal:

"Father God, help me to truly be humble, and give up myself and care of reputation or seeking of glory, and just seek to glorify You. Help me to show love towards ALL of my brothers and sisters. Help me to let go of unnecessary, distracting emotions. You know my heart and my desires, but You love me and know what is best for me. Father help me to just be seeking you so much that everything falls away. Be with me, help me and strengthen me."

I am so grateful to our Lord that He has heard, and honored this prayer.

Have a blessed and restful night in the Lord!

Beej's dad

Thank you for continuing to put your name, city, state, or country...

Brent & Deanna,
I am amazed at the depth of BJ's spiritual growth. By sharing his journal he helps me desire to be more the person Christ would have me to be.
I'll be praying through the night for everything to go smoothly tomorrow. I pray that both of you will find rest and peace.

Psalm 40..... as I was reading this I was led by the Lord to share with you. Let the words minister a sweet fragrence to you as you approach another night. Let your bodies and spirits rest as you have a big day ahead of you. Rest in the assurance that all of us who love you will be lifting you and BJ up to the Throne of Grace. Remember this that we have sung so many times....."He IS Able more than Able to Accomplish what concerns you today".....
Feel His arms embrace you tonight please rest and renew your strength.....
We Love you..Phil & Paula

I waited patiently for the LORD;
he turned to me and heard my cry.
2 He lifted me out of the slimy pit,
out of the mud and mire;
he set my feet on a rock
and gave me a firm place to stand.

3 He put a new song in my mouth,
a hymn of praise to our God.
Many will see and fear
and put their trust in the LORD.

4 Blessed is the man
who makes the LORD his trust,
who does not look to the proud,
to those who turn aside to false gods. [a]

5 Many, O LORD my God,
are the wonders you have done.
The things you planned for us
no one can recount to you;
were I to speak and tell of them,
they would be too many to declare.

6 Sacrifice and offering you did not desire,
but my ears you have pierced [b] , [c] ;
burnt offerings and sin offerings
you did not require.

7 Then I said, "Here I am, I have come—
it is written about me in the scroll. [d]

8 I desire to do your will, O my God;
your law is within my heart."

9 I proclaim righteousness in the great assembly;
I do not seal my lips,
as you know, O LORD.

10 I do not hide your righteousness in my heart;
I speak of your faithfulness and salvation.
I do not conceal your love and your truth
from the great assembly.

11 Do not withhold your mercy from me, O LORD;
may your love and your truth always protect me.

12 For troubles without number surround me;
my sins have overtaken me, and I cannot see.
They are more than the hairs of my head,
and my heart fails within me.

13 Be pleased, O LORD, to save me;
O LORD, come quickly to help me.

14 May all who seek to take my life
be put to shame and confusion;
may all who desire my ruin
be turned back in disgrace.

15 May those who say to me, "Aha! Aha!"
be appalled at their own shame.

16 But may all who seek you
rejoice and be glad in you;
may those who love your salvation always say,
"The LORD be exalted!"

17 Yet I am poor and needy;
may the Lord think of me.
You are my help and my deliverer;
O my God, do not delay

Brent, Deanna & girls, how our hearts and prayers are with you this night. We will continue to stand in the gap through prayer for Beej as well as all of you. I wore my t-shirt today and was able to share with 3 people - am anxious to tell you about one in particular who said she would log on and leave a message. I leave you with this passage I read today:

I will tell of the kindnesses of the Lord, the deeds for which he is to be praised, according to all the Lord has done for us---yes, the many good things he has done according to his compassion and many kindnesses. In all their distress he too was distressed, and the angel of his presence saved them. In his love and mercy he redeemed them; he lifted them up and carried them . . .Is. 63:6,9

May the One who knows the depth of your heartache and shares your distress be quick to show you His presence and mercy tonight and may He carry you through the next 24 hours. With all our hearts we pray - carol

I continue to be in awe of Bj's spiritual maturity. He continues to speak to my heart. He is a warrior for Christ the King.

As I pray for his peacful night and new strength I will reflect on his words and be searching my own heart.

We all appreciate the efforts you have made to keep us updated but I want to thank you so very much for sharing BJ's journal. God is speaking through his words to so many people.

God, BJ, I'm listening.

BJ, I'm humbled by your beautiful spirit and testimony of honoring God and surrendering ourselves so completly.


Tom, Ray & Janet Seaman and Eric Shaw are at the quartet convention in Louisville and have made flyers from the blog with BJ's story on them. They've been passing them out at their booth asking people to join us all in prayer. Can't have too many prayer warriors!

Father, thank you for walking with the Higgins family and especially for carrying BJ.

We pray this evening that you all and B.J. have another restful night. We pray for "Beej's" healing.
The girls were wearing their t-shirt again today, and were asked multiple times at school about the meaning, and then this evening we were eating a gourmet' meal at a wonderful restaurant, you may have heard of before....McDonalds. A girl that works there, whom actually is from North Dakota, going to Indiana Bible College asked the girls about their shirts...The standard question, "Who is BJ?"
I began to tell her about your amazing young man, she immediately said she would be checking out the Blog site, and would spread the word a school tomorrow. Many more believers to be praying!
Praying Strong and Long!
We all love you all!

I echo the sentiments of many others at how beneficial your sharing of BJ's journal has been. They have challenged me to a deeper relationship with our Lord.

I continue to pass along a request for prayer for BJ with anyone I can. I will continue praying for all of you. I'm praying that you & BJ have peace throughout the night.

"Indeed, in our hearts we felt the sentence of death. But this happened that we might not rely on ourselves but on God, who raises the dead. He has delivered us from such a deadly peril, and he will deliver us. On him we have set our hope that he will contiue to deliver us, as you help us by your prayers. Then many will give thanks on our behalf for the gracious favor granted us in answer to the prayers of many."

I shouldn't be, but I continue to be amazed at how God works to restore BJ...over and over again! I'm ashamed to admit that I get so emotionally involved in the details that I don't simply rest in the knowledge of how God works to defy the expectations of mortals!

What a blessing BJs life and testimony are to people from all over the world! Your family's spirit and testimony are having the same effect. I think His witness and yours are having the effect of causing everyone connected to pause and examine their own spiritual maturity or lack thereof.

Thank you for keeping us all informed so often.

Please, please have a restful night...all of you!

Wow, what an awesome journal entry that you shared. It is so encouraging to continue hearing how God continues to answer your specific prayers day by day. I was reading today and came across a great devotional written in My Utmost for his Highest and it was talking about how we sometimes go through confusion as christians not quite understanding why God has allowed certain things in our lives and it takes us to Luke 11:9-13 which says ask and it will be given to you, seek and you will find, knock and the door will be opened for you, for everyone who asks receives, everyone who seeks finds, .... so even in times we don't completely understand, we have to believe that our Father in heaven has our best in mind and will give us understanding of what he has allowed in our life but we must wait for his timing. It is through these times we actually find what he wants for our lives. So continue to stand firm, and know that God loves each of you so much and many people are lifting you up throughout the day, everyday especially here in Oklahoma!!!

Goodnight Higgins family,

Praying you get a good nights sleep, uninterrupted. Praying BJ has a restful night, with his levels holding steady. We will certainly be praying for the surgeons tomorrow as they undertake the delicate procedure of removing the canulas and vein repair. We continue to pray for BJ's renal function, pulmonary status and clotting factors. Our bodies are a masterful design with a very intricate balance that only the Creator knows exactly how everything works. God has been in control and continues to be in control of BJ. We are praying that He will continue to heal and restore BJ and that all of you will be strengthened by the outpouring of love you have been experiencing. Again, good night.

Love, Nancy

Just found out today about BJ and his fight from a coworker who had met BJ right after he returned from Peru, and who was extremely impressed by him. We have a prayer circle at work and he's now included in that. I'll be putting him on the prayer list at Christ United Methodist Church in Indianapolis tomorrow at prayer meeting. And, of course, he's now on my private prayer list as well as all of you family members. I hope he continues to improve and will one day be the wonderful human being he's started out to be. God bless all of you.

Tonight my little grandson Brannon is spending the night with me while Bill is in CA. Before bed we prayed for BJ and then I promply did what any Nanna would do, I let him sleep with me. As he was getting settled, I turned off the light. He turned to me and said "Dark, Nanna, very dark". With that I reached out my hand and he took it and cuddled up to me and in no time fell asleep. I immediately thought of BJ. Even in the dark may you all find rest and peace in the palm of our loving Father's gentle hand.

I will continue to pray for you all throughout the night and without ceasing tomorrow. I have no doubt that the Father is in control and will be glorified...for joy comes in the morning.

Lyrics from a Tommy Walker song...

Lord I run to you
No one else will
Lord in troubles times
I will run straight to you
Though my heart and flesh may fail
You're my ever present help
My tower of strength
My portion evermore

Lord I run to you
No one else will do
Lord you said we'd face
Trouble, pain, and fears
But to be of good cheer
For you have overcome the world

I lift my eyes up to the Mountains
Where does my help come from?
It comes from you Lord
You are the maker of Earth and Heaven
And there is nothing that's to hard for You

I am in prayer for BJ as so are various members of our church, and I wish to send a band of angels around your entire family, physicians, and of course BJ. I am soo greatly moved by such a young mans convictions that I am ashamed to admit I myself am not where BJ is spiritually. I pray that Satan releases his grip on BJ's health, and God allows such a healing that BJ continues to reach up and out to all the peoples of the world. God Speed.

Watched the Billy Graham Crusuade on tv last night. He had Nicole C. Mullens on there. She sang one of my all time favorite songs..."When I Call on Jesus". I couldn't help but be encouraged by this song on your behalf. This is the chorus:

"But when I call on Jesus
All things are possible.
I can mount on wings like eagles and soar
When I call on Jesus.
Mountains are gonna fall
'Cause He'll move heaven and earth to come rescue me when I call."

We are all calling on Jesus to come rescue BJ!

As I reread BJ's prayer this morning the words of the chorus of "Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus" came to mind. This truly is what BJ's has done.
Turn your eyes upon Jesus, Look full in His wonderful face, And the things of earth will grow strangely dim, in the light of His glory and grace.
I am praying that we will all, as the Body of Christ, turn our eyes upon Jesus today and trust Him fully as BJ undergoes all of the procedures planned for today.
Grace and peace to you.

As I walked and prayed this morning, I felt tired and weaker than I usually do. As I asked God to renew my strength, I saw a picture of BJ and his family in your extreme weakness and asked God to make you strong. Father, strengthen them in every way today, especially through this time of surgery for BJ. Help them to know Your power and Your might in every circumstance. Thank you that when we are weak, then YOU are strong!

My dear nephew was on ECMO after open-heart surgery, as well as many others we know in the heart community. This is a procedure I'm all to familiar with, but hope never to become comfortable with.

"His grace is sufficient for me, for His power is made perfect in my weakness. Therefore, I will boast gladly in my weaknesses, for when I am weak, then I am strong." (2 Cor. 12:9) There will never be a trial, a procedure, and surgery, ANYTHING that is bigger than God's grace. What a comfort!

Praying that you're comforted by this truth, and that you feel God's loving arms around you all. May you experience His peace which surpasses all understanding.

Anxiously awaiting the next update with prayer, ...Lattany
