life and times of a family with a little man with designer genes
A Little Something Extra
Thursday, May 8, 2008
The surgeon just came out to talk with me and she said they were able to close Micah's chest. Thank you, God! She added two more pacer wires to help pace his heart for a bit, but she said the procedure went very well. Thanks, everyone, for your prayers.
Welcome to our family blog. We have three boys: Nathan (7), Micah (4), and Matthew (3). Nathan is our energetic, sports fanatic first-born. Micah is our charming little guy, who happens to have an extra 21st chromosome (aka Down syndrome) and multiple associated health issues. Matthew is our big-boy-wanna-be. I started this blog the day after we found out that Micah has designer genes (Trisomy 21, aka Down syndrome). We've been through a lot of ups and downs (and a lot of time in the hospital), but God is faithful and continues to show His love toward us.
