January 7th 2010

Today was an encouraging day.  We received some good news from the MRI last night, all of Makoa’s brain functions seem to be working properly.  He was able to feed briefly off a bottle and the feeding specialist worked with both him and Tiffany to see if we can get him to latch on.  Unfortunately, he is still very weak and we need to get him stronger.  It’s tough to realize that we are going to be leaving the hospital without our little man, but we are so grateful for the wonderful support group of friends and family.

Here is Makoa’s home for the undetermined future.  Grammy is currently working on a more suitable blanket for our little man, and his sister and cousins have adorned his Panda Warmer with cards and decorations.  

We are all optimistic that he will get stronger and we put our faith in God that he will lead us down the path he has chosen for us.  We continue to ask for you prayer and support and are so thankful for the wonderful friends and family we have.

    Lindsey and Tiffany we are praying for Makoa, for complete healing in his little body and for each of you for comfort, strength both emotional and physical and faith to continue to trust in our great and gracious God. I pray that God will watch over the entire family giving each one what he/she needs during this difficult time of waiting. We also rejoice in this new life, precious Makoa!!
