Here are the promised pictures!! They are so thrilled to be able to lay hands on him and "love" on him a little. Ethan has had great 24 hours. He continues to be stable and they are still trying to wean him from the Dopamine and the oscillator. When he is weaned from the oscillator he will be on a ventilator. Please continue to pray that his blood pressure will go up and gases will stay stable so that they can wean him from the Dopamine. This will make them one step closer to coming off the oscillator. They are coveting your prayers so please keep praying. They are so encouraged by the progress Ethan has made and pray for no set backs. The Lord is so faithful and is really taking care of His own!
Also, Helen is coming for a few days, so pray for safe travel and a great visit. She will be so excited to see her parents and they can't wait to see their girl! It will be a great time for all of them.

  4. Kerry and Bonnie Ethan is precious. I am a mother of two and a nanna of three. my grandson had to be transported to uab when he was one month old. We have been there, we know just how tough it is. My grandson had to have open heart surger at two months old. We stayed there for two months with him. We will continue to pray for baby Ethan. We know through god's strength and your faith he will be fine and will get to come home. Our prayers are with you. Sheree Thornell BRaswell

  5. Kerry and Bonnie, Ethan is absoutley precious. My grandmother (lillian Thornell) told us about him. His pictures i know don't do him justice. I know it must be hard. I pray that God takes him into his hands and lifts him up. I pray for you two as parents for the strength you need to get through this hard time. He is a little miracle. Please let us know if there is anything else that we can do for you. Brittany l. Braswell Campbell

  7. Kerry and Bonnie- My sister sent me an email about you guys this morning. (She knows Kendra Byrd.) Anyway, I clicked on the link to your blog and I instantly remembered both of you from TSU. (Actually I can't remember one of you without the other.) My maiden name was Jones...don't know if that rings a bell.
    Just know that I am lifting you and your precious little ones up. I won't pretend to imagine what you are going thru, but I did want to give you these verses that have come to mean alot to me.
    "Because of the Lord's great love we are not consumed, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness." Lamentations 3:22-23

  8. This is wonderful news. We are still praying. I love you and I'm thinking of you every minute! The kids left you guys and Ethan a picture message on our blog. They are remembering him each night in their little prayers as well. He is a beautiful, strong baby just as I knew he would be. God is good.
