The Toughest Little Man

Our little man pulled through! Surgery is over, and everything went very well! God is good!

All three parts of Jude's surgery came off without any major problems, and he's been moved up to the pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) to begin his recovery. (He did lose some blood in the surgery, but it wasn't an excessive amount, so the team in the OR was able to bump him back up to appropriate levels with some extra blood and fluids that were made available for him.) He's still on a ventilator, but he may lose the breathing tube within the next few days. For now, he's on some drugs to manage his pain and keep him asleep until tomorrow.

Thank you all for your prayers for a successful surgery! We are very thankful that the Lord brought Jude through this challenge! Now we pray that He will likewise provide for a swift recovery for our little tough guy. :)


  1. Hooray!!! We are so thrilled! Praising God with you! Thanks for the update! Claiming a speedy recovery! The Penningtons

  3. Hooray! So very glad and relieved to hear this report. Still praying for Jude and you both.

  4. Still praying for a swift recovery and many improvements in his day-to-day life now that he has had the surgery and other adjustments!
