Joy Comes In The Morning

Today has been the most fabulous day ever. We finally got the news we've been waiting on and I have been smiling all day. The Lord is good! Nathan's shunt is working. They will take him off the ventilator tomorrow and start feeding him. This will be the first time anything has gone through his mouth. The doctor said he is on the road to recovery. I want to thank everyone who has prayed for him and said kind words and thoughts. Nathan has shown everyone that he is the boss. I knew he would be anyway. They will be at UAB for another week or so, but he should be home soon. Isn't that wonderful news? Brandi and Neil are finally breathing a little easier, as is his grandmother.

While we have been at UAB, there are many babies with heart problems and had heart surgery, but with multiple other problems. There was one that had 7 other problems and they were told she wouldn't live past a year. It was so hard just to go through heart surgery with Nathan, but God revealed so much to me through this time also. I praise Him that his heart was the only problem Nathan has. It could be so much more, so I thank God right now for my precious grandson and I praise him....amen!!!! Thanks again and I'll keep you updated for the HOMECOMING!!!



  1. OH, Debbie - what a precious little gift from God. I will add sweet Nathan to my praise reports! I will continue to pray for him and all of you as well. I want to see some pics of his grandmother holding him...

    Thank you for allowing me to pray for that sweet little one.

    In Him,
