Well your prayers continue to be answered directly. Greg was successfully taken off the ventilator this morning. He is breathing well on his own with only oxygen via nasal cannula. His chest tubes are draining only a moderate amount and it was predicted that he would have bleeding problems from this area. His new heart is pumping well and he is off most of the IV drips that were needed to support his blood pressure. He was given his first dose of MEGA steroids which was really hard on him...still tremoring now. And believe it or not, in one hour they will be getting him out of bed to eat his clear liquid dinner. Please pray for strength as he does this. I'll post again later tonight to let you know how it goes. Thank you again for praying!
