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.

Long John

Look at how tall my boy is!  And look at those beautiful straight legs....only four weeks post op and he's back to doing almost everything he did previous to surgery (just doing it better...and easier!)

He's still going strong with PT five days a week.  You can definitely tell he's tired by Friday but he never quits.  Proud is an understatement!

And, drum roll please...

Headaches are all gone!!!!  He hasn't had one since last Saturday and when I asked him if his head still hurts he replied, "No Mama!  The pain is alllllll gone!"  We are still going to get the MRI if they ever schedule it (getting VERY frustrated with them) because after talking to other PT's that are familiar with this surgery I've learned that the headaches are not normal.....plus he was overdosed (not sure if that has anything to do with it.)  Again, better safe than sorry.



And my beauty queen.....sporting her brothers socks!!!

Holy guacamole!!! Look at your little big man. So happy that the headaches are gone and that he's STANDING by himself! Big smiles. Oh, and of course Hopie is too cute for words chillin' in her tube socks. xoxo
