Answers to Prayer and more Requests...

This is another friend of Mark and Jennie... Jennie plans on posting pictures, etc. tomorrow AM after she is released from the hospital.

I just talked with Jennie and wanted to share some answers to prayer:

Baby D
-has good muscle tone according to the neonatologist in Neenah!
-needs no immediate intervention (as far as we know now) for the AV canal- it can wait until he's older.

-is feeling MUCH better comparatively after this C-section than her first C-section- she has been up walking around numerous times today.
-has discharge orders for tomorrow AM (not doing the transfer thing to Milwaukee)
-has been encouraged already by visits from friends and family.

-went with Baby D to Milwaukee.
-able to check into the Ronald McDonald house tonight (unexpected great news).
-has friends (Kevin and Angie) who came to be with him in Milwaukee.

1. The timing of Baby D's surgery in Milwaukee.
2. Comfort and reassurance for Mark and Jennie from God
-on Baby D's health.
-the various hurdles to overcome in the near and far future - not to be overwhelmed.
-the stress of the last 24 hours with everything that has happened.

"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God." 2 Corinthians 1:3-4

Congrats on your new arrival!

My daughter w/ DS has surgery for duodenal atresia at two days old. She weighed less than 4 1/2 pounds but did great. I am praying for the same for your baby!
