The medical staff removed Ian's trach today. It's now covered like any wound, and they'll wait for it to heal. He's doing well with it out.
"I [Spurgeon] can bear willing testimony to His faithfulness. Not one good thing has failed of all that the Lord has promised! Every example of God's love should make us believe Him more. As we see the fulfillment of each promise, it compels us to say, 'God has kept His promises and will keep them to the end.'
The worst is that we forget. Then we will have no more faith than when we started, for we will have forgotten God's repeated answers. Though He has fulfilled the promises, we have buried them in forgetfulness."
We can "bear willing testimony to His faithfulness," too. God has done so many good things in our lives, way more good things than we deserve. We don't want to forget his kindness and faithfulness, and we want to trust God to treat Ian in the same way.
