Update on Rachel

A couple days ago I posted this prayer request and this first update. Here is the wonderful update I received last night...

The fluid in Rachel’s lungs is gone, making possible removal of the drainage tube; just a few minutes ago she was taken off the ventilator, & is now breathing on her own, all thanks and praise to God! She is still in I.C.U., & though receiving post-operative pain medication is conscious & able to respond non-verbally. “Prayer,” as blessed Saint Agathon said so long ago, “ is warfare to the last breath.” May we continue to faithfully intercede for dear Rachel & her family!

This is amazing. I admit I didn't have the faith to expect such an outcome. Bless God for His mightly acts.
