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. Jeremiah 29.11
My brave boy endured two more surgeries before his 8th birthday.
Surgery number seven was to close his G-tube site internally. The recovery was rough but he bounced back quickly.....as usual. Now, he has a tiny scar in place of his button and he couldn't be happier.
Surgery number eight.....and hopefully his last surgery, was to correct the position of his right eye (it was turning up and in.) He sported a black eye for a few weeks but the pain and discomfort was minimal. The Dr. nailed it 100% and it looks awesome.
John's AMAZING baseball league (The Miracle League of Arizona) offered us Diamondback tickets, a pre game "meet and greet" in the locker room with Heath Bell, signed shirts and baseballs and some personal time with Baxter!!!!
