Cuddle Time

I just spent an hour holding my baby - it was wonderful! Since last Tuesday we've had the opportunity to hold Bronson every time we've gone to see him! I love it!

There haven't been any huge changes to his health status from the last time I posted an update. He is doing great breathing with just nasal prongs and low flow oxygen, kidneys are still functioning up to par, and his WBC count is still up! We are still waiting for his bilirubin levels and blood clotting levels to improve but hopefully we will see that this week.

The past 3.5 weeks have felt like an entire year has gone by. It felt like we were waiting forever to start to see Bronson make some progress and then all of a sudden within a couple days we were getting a lot of good news. Right now, while we're waiting for Bronson's liver function to improve, it feels like forever again. But I'm praying that one day his liver will all of a sudden start functioning as it should, his blood work will be normal and his cancer will be gone. To the doctors and nurses it may look like Bronson has a long way to go but I know that with prayer and God on our side amazing things can happen!

Now that we've been able to hold Bronson I think the next step should be to bring him home!

What an encouraging report!

We don't know each other; someone alerted me to your situation a while back because I work in a NICU (clerical), am amazed at the fabulous things that happen there, and would join you in prayer for your little guy.

Your son is precious to the Lord, as you well know, and I believe the clinicians are part of His gift to us, whether they know it or not!

Bless you for your steadfast faith; you've certainly had more to face in a few years of marriage than most. Don't forget to breathe. And sleep whenever/wherever you can!

Clearly, many are praying. And He's a good God!
