This is the amazing story of our micro preemie, John Craig. He was born on November 30, 2005 at 24 weeks and 5 days gestation. He weighed 1 pound 8 ounces and was 12 inches long. John is a true miracle and an inspiration to all that meet him!
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.

Day Five

We are back on track!  

Yesterday was day five post op.  Thankfully my big guy bounced back quickly from the previous nights mishap and surprised us all with how well he was doing.

He did awesome with PT, sat for a long time in the chair, took another long nap.....and discovered the buttons on the bed:)   I looked over last night and his feet were in the air.....and he was grinning from ear to ear.  He also enjoyed his visits with our friend Renee (who brought him a huge Mickey Mouse,) Grammy, Grams, Papa and Hope.

We discontinued ALL Valium and Lortab (can you blame us) and have only been giving him Tylenol and Motrin.....and he's doing AMAZING with it.

We are headed home today and couldn't be more excited!

Again, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for continuing to pray over's been a scary ride but we know God has great things in store for him.

Hopie hoped right into his bed:) I think someone misses her brother A LOT!

LOVE this man of mine...and his sister too!

Thank goodness John is ok. Very scary event you all had to share. I had a similar one this summer with Courtney.... Very hard to see your child like that. But you are a very strong woman, and God only gives you what you can handle! My prayers continue to be with all of you :-) Mrs. B
