Prayer Request

Everyone please pray for Diesel. Corie took him to the doctor yesterday b/c he kept throwing up. They then went to see a doctor in Little Rock and he wasn't in or something so they took him to Children's. They ran some tests and found out that the opening from his stomach to his small intestine is closed. He is having an Upper GI done right now and then they are going to do surgery to open it up. The doctor said that this is something that is very common, especially among baby boys and babies that are premature (he was 3 weeks early) The doctor also said that it was a simple procedure and they just want to keep him for 24 hours I guess to make sure he keeps his food down and that kind of thing. I'll try to keep everyone updated.

I'll keep him in my prayers. That is so sad that he has to have surgery - it's so scarey when they are soo little. I love his pictures you just posted though, he is such a cutie little boy!!!

So I've been making those pictures on Wade's laptop (we put all our pictures there on vacation) and I'm using Microsoft Publisher and saving the file as a JPEG. That is how I get color - I think any program that you can save as a JPEG would work.

I am so sorry. I will definetly keep you guys in our prayers. My nephew had this exact problem but it wasn't discovered till he was 2 years old and couldn't be fixed with surgury. So his recovery was lengthly with meds. Dr's said that when it is caught at an early age it is much easier to correct. So this is good that you guys were able to catch it now.
