Update on Naomi ~ Day 7

Short and sweet. Just like Naomi. Yesterday she was initiating only two breaths per minute on the ventilator. Today she is initiating 18 breaths per minute. Vitals look good. Blood gas levels look good. Still adjusting some insulin levels as they are feeding her pediashure thru her feeding tube. Tomorrow is not here yet, and yesterday is gone. We live in the here and now. STANDING for Naomi, we fight in faith for her recovery. Let it be so. God gets the glory, we just give the fight. Much love to all the prayer warriors and people fighting in the trenches with us. We will not give ground. We are advancing and mean to see this thru. Please… pray harder.

 James 5:13-15 Is anyone among you suffering? He should pray. Is anyone in good spirits? He should sing praises. Is anyone among you ill? He should summon the elders of the church, and they should pray for him and anoint  him with oil in the name of the Lord.
And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick and the Lord will raise him up – and if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.

Today we do both… Praying and singing. Sing with us… after you pray.   Hard.

  1. Still praying for your precious Naomi, as is our church and alot of my facebook friends. Every day I am anxious to go to your update and see the progress that she has made. Praying for you and your wife too. God Bless You!

  2. I look for theses updates daily and although I may not post on each one I am praying hard! Thank you for keeping us posted on the daily strides Naomi is making!

  3. Awesome, Awesome, Awesome!

    James 5:16 Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.

    Continuing to believe and pray!

  4. Praising God for little victories along the way! Believing in complete healing and speedy recovery.

  5. This is fabulous news, Chris! 18 bpm is normal! Praises to God! We will take what is given today. Feeding tube is a good thing. Is she still intubated or have they trached her yet? FYI, the trach is a good thing! We fought it and prolonged having it done but now we see it IS a good thing. If they recommend, accept it. Later it can be removed and healing will close it. It is SO much better than the intubation tube. Just a word of experience to consider. Continue to keep us informed..we are walking this with Naomi thru your updates and His Word. Miracles are happening all around us…we just have to open our eyes, receive them, and then see them!

    Nancy and Eric

    • Nancy, we have talked about the trach, and will talk more about it tomorrow. We all are in agreement with you on this. Thanks to you and Eric for the prayers!

  6. My kids were so excited to hear that update. (had a tear in my eye and choked up a little trying to read it to them) We’re steady praying… God is GREAT.

  7. Chris-Wendy. I am so proud of ya’ll. Still praying and thoughts are with all of you.

  8. Hey Chris and Wendy still praying and lifting Naomi up. Love you guys. Also thanking God for her healing because I feel her healing is already done. And now no one but our God gets the glory.

  9. Mr. Chris I just wanted to let you and Mrs. Wendy know that your whole famliy has been in my prayers and my heart all week I love ya’ll and I will kepp praying and let God work.

  10. What a little fighter! This is awesome. Just goes to show you NOTHING is IMPOSSIBLE with God on your side. This is just a giant for ya’ll to face. We are praying for little Naomi and for strength and hope for all of her family. Lizzie sends hugs to Caleb!

  11. We first heard about precious Naomi Friday from Lisa Axson. Been praying for healing ever since. We do serve a Mighty God – He is Mighty To Save! Father God, I lift this precious child and her family up to you now. Sustain them, comfort them, heal Naomi Oh God, I pray.

  12. I pray for you ernestly, as my family lost a child to drowning and the road we travel still today is one that I do not wish for you and your family.
    I believe GOD has a purpose for Naomi and I know she will fulfill it so I have poured my heart out for your child to FULLY RECOVER.
    Right now I have a peace in my heart that it will be a fight but she WILL WAKEUP and RECOVER. I can not believe that I am writing this to you but I felt lead to do so. So I ask everyone on this chain to embrace this peace and pray even harder not just for her to recover, be specific. Pray for the return of her smile, the sparkle in her eyes, and for her lungs to strength that no TRACH is necessary, let’s just bypass that step.
    Pray is POWERFUL and it will not only carry Naomi but it will also carry the rest of your family. GOD is With us all!

  13. Continuing to pray for Naomi and you guys!! Very encouraging to hear of her progress and the faith of all praying for her…

    “The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them; He delivers them from all their troubles. The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.” Psalm 34:17-18

    Much love,

    Tiffany & Z-man 🙂

  16. Hi Chris,

    I’m Judy Cubbison’s daughter. She told me about Naomi. I’ve got folks in Charleston praying for her too. I believe that God has promised to protect and heal us and Naomi’s health is a part of the covenant we have with him. Keep holding on. I’m looking forward to seeing her adorable self on stage with you as you share the process of God’s faithfulness in your life.


  17. Much love and prayer for precious Naomi and your whole family from Sumter, SC! God is the healer, restorer, and miracle worker and he is definitely there with you all!
