Thanks for your Prayers for my Mom

Thanks for all your prayers for my mother; God is answering them and she is showing signs of improvement. Tuesday afternoon she started trying to respond and to try and talk some. Also, that evening when we got back up to the hospital there was this huge rainbow over the hospital from one side to other. She seems to slowly be coming out of it and the Doctors still aren't exactly sure why she slipped away; they thought it was encephalitis but now they aren't sure it is/was. Please continue to pray and that she will have no permeate effects from all this. On Wednesday she called me an idiot so know she is getting better, haha... ... Thanks again for all your prayers!!!

Please Pray Now for Marietta Knight

Please pray for God to heal my mother in the name of Jesus.

We just got home from the hospital and she was moved into the Critical Care Unit today. It is a long story starting a few months back starting with a few falls earlier this year to a bit of memory loss.

The diagnosis looks like encephalitis (infection and inflammation of the brain) but they are not certain. They are continuing to run tests but over the last week (since she was admitted this last time) she has gone from not talking to not responding and is practically in a coma at this point.

She is now on low flow Oxygen and has a feeding tube (never thought I would be doing this with my mom so soon after going through all we did with Lucas... ...)

Will post more later, but believing that our God is Mighty to Save tonight! We are in desperate need of our Saviour now... ....

HAPPY BIRTHDAY LUCAS, We sure miss you!!

Missing our baby boy so much today!! Moment by moment thinking of his warm smile and his contagious laughs. He would have been three today... ...

Building 429 - Always Lyrics

I was standing in the pour raining
One dark November night
Fighting off the bitter cold
When she caught my eye
Her face was torn and her eyes were filled
And then to my surprise
She pulled out a photograph
And my heart just stopped inside
She said He would have been three today
I miss his smile, I miss his face
What was I supposed to say

But I believe always always
Our Savior never fails
Even when all hope is gone
God knows our pain and His promise remains
He will be with you always

Happy Mother's Day; Pierce's Concert...

Mixed emotions as usual this time of year. Our church, BNC, had a block party in northern Arkansas yesterday that our worship team from Bryant went up for. Pierce thought it was his concert so we let him open up with his new favorite song.

Check it out:

Lucas was born to us 5/10/07 and was soon diagnosed with CHARGE. CHARGE syndrome is a recognizable (genetic) pattern of birth defects which occurs in about one in every 9-10,000 births worldwide. It is an extremely complex syndrome, involving extensive medical and physical difficulties that differ from child to child. Babies with CHARGE syndrome are often born with life-threatening birth defects, including complex heart defects and breathing problems. They spend many months in the hospital and undergo many surgeries and other treatments. Swallowing and breathing problems make life difficult even when they come home. The letters in CHARGE stand for: Coloboma of the eye, Heart defects, Atresia of the choanae, Retardation of growth and/or development, Genital and/or urinary abnormalities, and Ear abnormalities and deafness. Lucas's anomalies included with his case of CHARGE include minor heart defects of ASD and PDA, bilateral choanal atresia repaired at four days old, undescended testes repaired at seven months old, and ear abnormalities; also he has reflux and aspirated while feeding shortly after being born and thus had a G-tube and Nissen Fundoplication at five weeks old. Additionally he has PE tubes, very low muscle tone and facial palsy on his right side. Lucas was diagnosed with Primary Pulmonary Hypertension at 12 months old. He showed us how to shine through the rain as he lost his bravely fought battle and entered into Heaven on 10/02/08. He was our miracle on earth the 507 days we spent with him.
