The healing power of touch

Hello Everyone-

Thank you all for your continued prayers! I know my faith in God has grown by leaps and bounds in the last several days. God has a powerful way of bringing you to your knees in prayer and then lifting your spirits through healing! God is good!

The latest report is that Rebecca is doing well. She is starting to feel human again! hehe Amanda and I are now "scared straight" babies for us for a while! LOL Rebecca got to HOLD Claire today for 15 minutes. A mother's bond to her child is something I can't even put into words.Claire reached up and held tight to Trent's finger! Awww...I'm so sorry I missed this but Rebecca's friend, Beth, took some pictures of this that we all can't wait to see!

Claire is still fighting hard. She had apnea 3 times last night; yes...she stopped breathing. The nurses were able to correct this quickly but if it continues to happen then something more permanent will have to be considered to ensure she keeps breathing. It is still my understanding that the heart is ok and they aren't talking of surgery for that at this time. The blood and liver issues are most concerning. It is a minute to minute process with the doctors and Claire's treatment. Rebecca is pumping and the nurses are feeding Claire the milk thru her feeding tube. Awesome!

Continued prayers, love and support are needed for Rebecca, Trent, and Claire. Claire is a fighter and we pray God's healing hands continue to care for her. Rebecca and Trent will need so much love and support. I'm not a parent, but I can only imagine the feelings one must have to leave the hospital without their baby; knowing that she must stay to get healthier. (sigh) Rebecca may move in with James and I for the time being. (James is excited because, for once, he may know what it's like to have a home cooked meal!!! LOL j/k)

We love y'all!

  1. I am so happy to hear that everything is going as well as it is! The bond between a mother and her child is an amazing and wonderful thing, and I am glad that both Rebecca and Claire got that experience today. Still keeping the family in my prayers.
