Ethan was transferred last night from UAB to Children's Hospital in Birmingham. He has officially been diagnosed with Persistent Pulmonary Hypertension of the Newborn (PPHN), with the possibility of the use of the ECMO (heart & lung bypass machine). Please pray specifically for Ethan...that his stats would progress without use of the ECMO, for wisdom and strength for doctors and nurses, and for Bonnie and Kerry as they are with him. Also, please remember to pray for Ethan's big sister, she is starting to ask for her parents. It will be hard, but the Lord will have His hand on every part of the way.
Bonnie also shared that the Lord is revealing so much to them through the most difficult situation they could imagine, HE is answering their prayers of walking closer in our relationship with Him, of growing their prayer life, of learning to completely surrender to Him.
