    David's condition is getting better, he is no longer on a ventalater. He has a touch of pneumonia. David has opened his eyes a few times but has not fully woke up yet. He is moving around in the bed and trying to pull his feeding tube out so we are hoping he will wake up soon. All of the prayers are greatly appreciated, keep them going! He is such a loved little boy, he has had so many phone calls and visitors and will be so happy to know this when he wakes up. Thanks to everyone who has helped in any way.
