Monday Evening


Aaron and Marshall

Hello, All. Just a quick note of continued thanks and a progress report. Aaron had a good night and they increased his feeds to make sure his tummy would tolerate milk again. Today he had his first real bottle. He didn’t take much–only an ounce, but it was a start. He was SO thankful and we are, too! We still can’t hold him and he can’t sit upright much until they remove the pacer wires and medication lines that go straight through his chest into his heart. If he continues to do well, they may remove them tomorrow. Then we can hold him again! We are thankful and hopeful with each new day. God has been good, but please keep praying for Aaron.

Please don’t forget to say a prayer for our friend Marshall. He is still waiting on his heart. There is a fundraiser basketball tournament tomorrow night at Northwest Rankin. If you live in Jackson, please stop by!
