A long night...looking up

I am going to be brief, as it's 1:24am and we are just getting home from the hospital. Cannon had another surgery this afternoon to have a central line put in since he will be receiving IV antibiotics for the next 2ish weeks, due to his infection. The surgery went well, but it took a little longer for him to wake up this time. After we got back to the room, Trey and Brandon ran to Clyde to collect more "stuff" since they will be staying here longer. Ali and I stayed with Cannon. He has not yet eaten (since before 8am tuesday), but also has not yet woken up enough to do so. He is also having some trouble breathing, but they are watching it. When we left, Ali was finally sleeping, and Cannon was beginning to act as though he wanted to wake up.

Specific prayers for Cannon:
1. The shunt - that it does it's job, but doesn't drain too much.
2. His breathing to improve
3. His back to continue to heal (it's looking good)
4. His feeding/eating - that he'll start waking up enough to eat more consistently
5. Infection

Also, Please continue to pray for Trey and Ali...they are tired in every sense of the word.
As always, I will update tomorrow as soon as I can!

Praying for sweet baby Cannon to fully recover and continue to heal and get stronger everyday. And for strength for Ali and Trey. My thoughts are with all of you.
