Recovering but......

Well, I have been home for a couple of weeks now, and my baby and her baby are still at UAB. The doctors have said that Nathan is on the road to recovery, but he still has a ways to go. One thing that kept bothering us was the fact that he still has fluid on his lungs. Last night they finally figured it out. There was something in his heart that was punctured when he had his surgery. They told my daughter that this was very common because the heart is so small. There is a special formula that they give him instead of breast milk. The formula is not as strong as the breast milk so it doesn't work this area as hard so it has time to heal. If the formula doesn't work then they have a medicine to try. If both fail, there will be an additional surgery to repair it. Please pray that it will be healed without any additional surgery. Hopefully he will be getting the ventilator taken off this week and start feeding by mouth next week. They will probably be there another three or four weeks. We have the flu going around at my house, so I can't even go visit right now. Even with all this, I praise my Lord, and I thank him for everything he has already done. Debbie


  1. Debbie - I am still praying for precious little Nathan and your sweet daughter and family. I just know that God will continue to heal his little heart. What a testimony that little fella will have one day!

    Praise His Name!


  2. We'll be praying for Nathan and mom and dad...you and your family...and for your cousin Paul and the Church, as a whole...since the shooting death of the Pastor.
