Clark’s Superman Recovery Story
Just a quick update, and a piece of new information that I forgot to mention three days ago…..Jen is home!!
We just had some of our best friends call to see if it would be a good time to come by and see Jen at the hospital. These friends are faithful blog readers, so this confused me. But, now I realize that I never told you all this bit of info! Jen and I spent our third night at home last night, and it is just wonderful. We are certainly torn between here at the hospital, but it is so nice to sleep in our own bed in the peace and quite of home. (I know, the peace and quiet part is almost over.)
Please pray for Henry this morning. Henry is having 2-3 heart rate dips per hour right now. This is not a critical problem, and is very common with preemie’s, but is a problem that he will have to overcome none the less. Please pray that little Henry’s brain would remember to tell his heart to beat all the time, not just some of the time!
I want to clarify Clark’s story a little bit for you today too. On the night that Clark was at his worst, his doctors thought that there was a realistic chance that he would not make it through the night. They had maxed out all of the medication to improve his condition, and all of their efforts were failing. Jen needed to go 24 hours without an infection before she would be allowed into the NICU to see the boys. But, at midnight, the NP who was in charge of Clark’s care came to our room to speak with us. She told us that she had been given permission to break the rule so that Jen could go up to see Clark. She was fearful that if Jen did not go get to see him that night, she may never get to see him alive. Clark finally turned to corner about 30 minutes after his mom got to see him for the first time. They still don’t know what made him so sick, and they are even more confused about how he has made such a rapid recovery, but we know that God answered our prayers for healing.
I only share this with you so that you all know just how miraculous Clark’s recovery was. His nurses and doctors were very grim about his condition, but God had other plans for his life.
We love you all,
Brad, Jen, and the Blue Crew
