New Blog for Nathanael

We recently started fundraising with COTA to cover Nathanael's medical expenses, so updates about him will be on his new blog from now on: Please check out the blog, pictures, and opportunities to help, and feel free to pass along the link to others. We appreciate your concern!

Lines are out! Let the fun begin!

Thank you for praying for us this morning! Though I was quite nervous, all went very well this morning, from getting up and being on time for our 7:15am check-in, to having BOTH procedures done at once, despite the fact that only one was scheduled, to Nathanael waking up quickly and feeling pretty good immediately after surgery. God blessed us in many ways today and we are very grateful.

Please do continue to pray for Nathanael in the next several days as his incision and line-openings heal. We need to change his diapers as soon as they're wet (and especially if they're dirty!) in order to promote healing and prevent infection. Now all that's left on his chest are a few band-aids covering the holes where those lines went stitches were used! In fact, once his incision and openings heal we can even put him in a real bath and let him splash!!! :)

Thanks again for keeping us covered in prayer today,



  1. Praise God for this great step toward your new normal!
    love, Kristy
