~We've come a long way baby~

Nathan is doing better everyday. Its so wonderful to be moving ahead instead of backwards. The Lord has been so good. My daughter has been able to hold him again after two weeks of not being able to. I can here my daughter in her voice again, if you know what I mean. I was talking to her last night and she was telling me all the good things that were going on, and she said "Mom, I love him so much." It just brought tears to my eyes. We probably talk 3-4 times a day. She has wanted to be a mom. He's now on room oxygen, he still has a picc line in, probably till he gets to a room where they can stay with him. She should be able to feed him tonight or in the morning with a bottle if he continues doing good.

This is mommy holding him again.

They say he won't even hardly have a scar. He's getting closer to coming home...woohoo!!

This has been a journey that we never expected, but it has made us stronger in many ways, including our faith. There may be other trials along the way, but we know through God we can make it. I want to thank everyone again for your prayers and thoughtfulness. Debbie


  1. Praise His Name! I am so happy for you all. He is a beautiful little baby and so blessed to have such wonderful people to love him.

    I can't wait until he gets to go home. What a blessing that will be.

    In Him,

  2. He is a cutie!! How exciting that she will be able to bottle feed him. Thanks for the update.
