A Brief Update
Erika just got back from seeing Asher and she told me that the nurse informed her that his kidneys are getting stronger and the urine is clearing up. They have been giving him a diaretic drug every 7 hours to help him flush the excess fluids his little body is retaining, but they had to space the shots apart to not put too much strain on his already week kidneys. Now they are able to give him the drug in a continuous drip which indicates how much stronger his kidney's are functioning. They aren't back to normal yet, but are definitely much improved! The nurses are sounding positive.
The doctors have been talking about Asher and trying to figure out when to bring him in for open heart surgery. They are tentatively thinking about Wednesday but will most likely do it on Friday or even next week. Whichever day this ends up being, I invite all of you to join me in fasting for him on this day. The surgery will start @ 7:30am and may go on until midnight or later. This is hard on Asher because they are going to be putting him on a bypass machine to be able to control his blood flow. His organs will be slightly deprived of oxygen again for the duration of the surgery so he will be taking another hit similar to the one that landed him in the hospital in the first place.
A Call to The Wall
This time will be crucial and I encourage all of you to mobilize prayer and fasting meetings for the full 24 hours that this operation is taking place. You can do so via prayer chains or setting up 24/7 rooms in your homes, garages, houses of prayer, churches, business places etc. What I see if groups of 24 praying one hour of the day. The more groups of 24 we have the better. We want to make sure that every minute of the day of this surgery is filled with intense intercession on behalf of Asher. We need heaven to come down to earth and birth a miracle for our little boy.
His recovery will be just as crucial and I am asking for this prayer to continue for the week after the surgery as well. Pray on these things. Many of you may not be able to pull off a 24 hour shift at your location and that is understandable. What I am asking from you is to do what you can with the influence that you have to see this boy's destiny come to pass.
Blessings in Jesus' Name!
