MAKING THE ROUNDS

The doctor came by this morning to make his rounds and update Mel and Austan on some specifics of Witt's health as of today.
*The heart shows to be totally fine! There appears to be no cardio. issue at all, which is an amazing discovery!
*Witt is a little jaundice. They said it is just in the same way that so many babies have jaundice though and should get better.
*They decided to start him on some breastmilk today. This is huge news! Mel has been diligently pumping without even knowing whether Witt would ever be allowed to have milk. We are thrilled that he will be fed some several times today. He is acting quite hungry and the milk could also help with jaundice.
*Later today they hope to test the kidneys to determine if there is reflux or blockage and find out more information on how to treat our little buddy.
Thank you for sharing in all of our concerns and praises. Your faithful prayers are what we need most!

What a precious little angel! In my quiet time this morning, I was filled with grief, but the Lord gently impressed upon me Psalm 34:8 - "Taste and see that the Lord is good." My prayers are with you all. I am in awe and am inspired by the strength and courage I see. What an impact this little guy has made on his world!

Love,

Prayers are being said for your family. You don't even know us, but that isn't important. Someday we hope to all be in the same place and for that I know my prayers are heard and your family will be blessed by God and all his glory.
