Happy Two Week Birthday Jude

Today is baby Jude's 2 week birthday. I must remind you that this is the same baby that Dr.'s offered his parent 4 times in his first few days to just take him off life support.

I'm convinced God has bigger plans for this little guy and his family!

  • He is opening his eyes! You MUST CHECK OUT THIS VIDEO OF IT! The most beautiful thing I've ever seen!

  • His MRI is looking better. There is still bleeding but the brain tissue is looking more normal! Keep praying for that healing of his brain! The neurologist is hopeful and encouraged his parents (Brandon and Mandy) to be as well!!!

  • They are going to do the surgery on his two heart defects (which at many points, they were not even sure the surgeon would agree to operate on him)! That is probably coming at the end of the week. Pray for that!

I have been praying LOTS lately between Jude and my Aunt Karen and other things going on in my life. I hope you are praying with me! It's been a rough week for me, and this good news about Jude is just what I needed. Praising God for that!

Thank you for sharing the story of baby Jude. I have been following the blog written by his Mom and am inspired daily by her faith and trust in God. I will keep praying for this beautiful baby boy!

Sarah, a link to this post showed up on my post tonight, and I just wanted to say thank you so very, very much for praying for Jude. The Lord has been so good to us through all the friends who have loved us and prayed for us. I am thankful for you. :-)
