Josiah (Jehovah has healed) has come through the Norwood procedure!

Posted by Milo Wilson On Wednesday, June 3, 2009 5 comments

So this is a picture of Josiah last night after the Norwood procedure. I admit, it is not a photo we will be putting in his baby book. However, it is the reality of what he went through yesterday. The doctors wouldn't even give us the odds of what we were up against, because of his list of complications, there was little or no data to compare him to. Dr Bradley even suggested that if we wanted to wait another day becuase weren't emotionally prepared to potentially lose a child, we could put it off.

But God is good! We recieved updates throughout the day, which we passed on to hundred of people who committed to pray for his little body to survive the procedure. He is doing very well!

The orange area on his chest in the picture is actually a protective cover over hisopen chest. We can look into the 1inch gap in his chest and see his little heart beating miraculously away. This is left open for about 24 hrs to allow the swelling to subside before closing him back up.
Thanks for prayin

    Anonymous congratulations on making it through the surgery! I remember the chest opening and all of those lines so vividly, and I remember how overwhelming it all can be...can you believe that they change every line every 3 days or so?...i remember when i left at night still hearing all of the machines beeping while I was sleeping. I remember worrying about how vulnerable his chest was going to be and how noticeable his scar would be...Nolan's scar has healed so well, and I am sure that Josiah's will as well...god is great!

    Anonymous Life is mostly surprises-
    taking strange turns, it seems-
    Seldom turning out the way
    of our original dreams.

    But detours, when they come,
    inevitably bring
    fresh visits of Gods's glory
    that make a heart sing.

    Then ask not why God's glory
    comes in such strange disguises.
    life's never as we dreamed,
    It's crammed full of suprises. sing Joshiah sing!

    with much love and prayers...Your Great Aunt Donna

    Anonymous Praying for Baby Josiah and your family!! God is a miracle worker. My sweet Ava was 10 weeks early, and 8 weeks in the NICU. God is showing up in Josiah's life and I am excited and encouraged by your family's faith.
