Cardiology Appointment

Elijah had his Cardiology appointment today and the doctor said he was improving well and he felt he would grow out of the heart problem. He also said we can stop all of the medicine he is on! Praise the Lord!! We are excited about his progress and are grateful for God's blessings.

To the ladies in Florida...if you have the money and are serious, let us know. We could travel there if the work and pay were right.
As for Elijah, we went to the Opthamologist and he said the CVI was in the better end of the spectrum. But...we may also have optical atrophy, which we are not sure what that will entail. We will know more in 6 months at his check-up.
We will be starting his therapies this coming week and are looking at someone from the school for the blind to come out to work with his vision.
Continue to pray for us on the job situation. We will be starting on the addition and have faith God will provide as He always has.
Thank you for your prayers!

No Job

We just found out that Michael does not have a job, so that is our new prayer concern. If anyone knows of a job in the area, let us know. You can call us or email us: or Michael at 662-582-5046. Michael right now is also looking for renovation jobs. He works for himself doing roofing, repairs, building, pressure washing, painting etc. so please contact us if you would like some work done. He has really reasonable rates and no job is too small.
Thank you,

Big Bubbas

Elijah with brother Benjamin

Happy At Home

Elijah Leaving the Hospital
We are doing well at home, still. We have signed up to start occupational therapy, physical therapy and speech therapy soon, hopefully next week. We have cardiology and opthamology next week and high risk newborn tomorrow (Wednesday). We are busy! Michael will be going back to work on Monday, the 25th so pray that all works out. He has not been in to work since January 22. We are selling Pizza Hut cards and Parkway Baptist church in Kosciusko is doing another fundraiser at Kosciusko Wal-Mart on June 13 and we are having a yard sale on June 6 to continue raising money. Michael is doing the prep work on the yard (removing trees, moving storage buildings, unearthing an underground propane tank...) and we will start the addition soon. Elijah needs to start his therapy for his vision as soon as possible, and I am the one who will have to do it. There isn't a vision therapy available and he is already testing behind developmentally because of his vision problems, so it is super important to get the area built. We will do with what we have in the meantime and know that God will bless our efforts.

To the lady whose son is getting a GT...please email me at what you want to ask me and what you want pictures of and I will be glad to help in any way.

Once again, thank you everyone for your prayers and keep them up!!

At home

At home and doing great!! The G tube is not as bad as we thought it would be. It is a little time-consuming and we are still learning the easiest way to do it, but it has not stopped us from doing what we normally would do. We did well raising money at the May Day festival and have other things still coming up. Keep praying for us and Elijah.

We are home in Mississippi!! Elijah is doing great and seems to be happy at home since he has had time to adjust. We are tremendously busy with doctor appointments, blood tests, paperwork and settling in, but are so grateful to be home. Keep on praying! We still do not know what the future will hold (as no one does), and there could still be bumps ahead. It's all in God's hands, though.
