Awesome News But Still Need Prayers.

Posted by Jessica Singletary on October 28, 2008

After 18 days, Carter came off ECMO yesterday!  What amazing news this is as now they can start thinking about surgery.  Please pray for Carter and Brad and Kellie as they continue to deal with all that CDH is and means.   This is definitely a step in the right direction!

Ava was extubated yesterday!  Please continue to pray for her that her body heals and she is able to go home soon to be with her family during the holiday season.  She is an amazing little girl with such spunk and fight. 

God is an awesome God.  Please remember to keep these familes in your prayers daily.

Prayers for Carter.

Posted by Jessica Singletary on October 15, 2008

Just wanted to update a little on Carter.  He’s holding his own right now on ECMO and his color looks great.  Mom and Dad are doing good too.  Please keep this little fella in your prayers as he is going to need them in the days and weeks to come.  Ashley and I are going to go up and visit soon (we haven’t been in Duke since p died) because he’s just too cute to resist any longer.  I had to add some pictures of him (kellie and brad hope you don’t mind).  I saw these tshirts from Chasing Fireflies (love this store) and Carter so needs these with his new rock star hairdo! 


And here’s a pic just because I absolutely love what Cas did with Elli’s pumpkin!  I am completely stealing this idea and doing one for Parker.  My niece and nephew picked a pumpkin out for her the other day.  The chose a white one because they said she’s an angel.  Couldn’t help but to tear up.
