I know it’s been a while since we have updated you guys and for that we are sorry. We have had a lot of things going on since our last update and, honestly, we just haven’t thought about it in a while, or when we do think about it, we are busy with other things and just don’t take the time to write a post. With that being said, where to begin?
The Softball Tournament
Our Softball Tournament was a huge success. Many thanks to our church family and friends who helped with organizing the tournament, as well as the many others who helped with running it the day of to make sure everything was a success. We had more teams in the tournament than we had originally planned to have; we were shooting for a 10-team tournament and got 12. It was a very long day of softball for this old man, but well worth it.
Brooklynn is HOME!!! She got to come home May 7, 2017 after 118 days in the NICU. We are so blessed and she is such a joyful baby. Though her journey through the NICU has come to an end, her journey through life is just beginning. We are so thankful for the many prayers from every one of you and for the many blessings from God Almighty! Please continue to keep our sweet Brooklynn in your thoughts and prayers as we continue to provide her care here at home.
Kambry has had some ups and downs. She is still in the NICU at UMC in Jackson, but we are hopeful to get her back to Forrest General soon. She had to have eye surgery May 3, 2017 because of the increased amounts of oxygen she has been on with the ventilator. They did a follow up on May 8 and said that her eyes were looking much better and they expected her to recover well after having the surgery. She will have another follow up on May 22. If all goes well on the 22nd we will start to push for her to get transferred back to Hattiesburg so that she will be closer to home and we can get to see her more often. With Brooklynn being home now it is harder for us to get to Jackson to see her on a regular basis. She has been taken off the ventilator and is now back on High Flow nasal cannulas; she is doing very well with this and continues to get better each and every day.
We thank you all so much and please know that Amy and I could not have made it this far without your thoughts and prayers. It is the prayers that each of you send up that keep us strong and continue to push us forward in this seemingly futile journey, but by God’s grace and the continued efforts of each of you, He gives us the strength to forge ahead and has given us two miracles that will continue to bless us for the rest of our lives.
We love you all so much!
