It’s been awhile since our last update and I feel that this one is the most important of them all. Mia is doing amazingly well and is back to her normal routine minus sleeping through the night. We suspect that she is waking a little sore in the middle of the night but other than that we have our little one back and it is a wonderful blessing! The support that you all have given us has been absolutely amazing! We are truly without want.
Many of you have asked us how you can help, and up until now we have really had all we need. But now we are in need in a big way. For those of you who are on FB with us, you have noticed us posting about family friends of ours who also have a beautiful heart girl who is going through an unexpected and very difficult stay in the hospital. We met this family nearly 6 years ago at a local heart parent support meeting at the hospital. Their miracle hadn’t been born yet but they knew that she would be born with a very complex heart condition called hypoplastic left heart syndrome. It requires multiple surgeries to repair and countless hospital stays and visits. When Mama and I first met this couple we were absolutely blown away by their faith, love, generosity, hope, and positivity. While we were in the hospital a few weeks ago with Lil Sis their little girl was admitted for complications from a cold. Her complications continued to spiral and she ended up having to do a 7 hour surgery to patch a hole where they discovered a massive blood clot. She has had test after test and finally is starting to be on her road to recovery. Mama and I ask that you circle this little girl, her parents, and her little brother in prayer. As you know I am in the military and have amazing medical insurance. Each one of our kids has racked up medical bills well in excess of a million dollars apiece and we haven’t had to pay a single penny. We are incredibly blessed! Unfortunately, not everybody can say the same. Because we are without what Mama and I are asking that if you can please donate to a fund that has been set up in this families name in order to assist in paying for medical expenses. I know that money is tight for many but every penny helps and this family could use all of us. Please don’t feel obligated but consider if you can help. You can also follow prayer requests through this website and her story for the next week or so while she's still in the hospital. The link to help them is below.Go Fund for Grace
As usual we hope that this update find you and your family well! As we had an amazing weekend as a family we would like to remind everyone to hug and love your families a little closer. Have a great week and be blessed!
