We are homeward bound!
When Everett was 6 days old I heard the worst news of my life. I started writing his eulogy after I saw the tumor,
became weak, and lost hope. I spared people the image of the tumor (the neurosurgeon with 26+ years
experience had seen 10 like this in his whole career) because I wanted them to have faith to pray. Though I had only held him for 6 days, I loved him so much. I knew having Everett in my life was worth it even if it was only for a short while, and I would do it again.
I am thankful for an amazing medical/surgical team (shout out to NICU nurses!), and eternally grateful for the prayers of 1000’s of people who do not know him.
Though we still have a lot ahead of us, his current recovery is nothing short of a miracle. I am reminded of 2 Cor 12:9 a, “My Grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.”
I expected to lose a child, and God intervened. I was reminded to be thankful for the little things and to never take a day for granted.
Prayer points (similar to the previous post):
-That the cancer was completely removed and stays away; pending possible medical treatment
-Full neurological recovery (still has problems using the R side of his body and low tone) -Blood clots in the brain dissolve
-Controlled seizures and weaning from medications
-Feeding -his seizure medicines make him to sleepy to breastfeed sometimes, so I supplement with pumped milk. It is very important to be hydrated for recovery
