Update on Heath

Sunday, April 18, 2010

You've been so kind to ask about our little grandson, Heath, to keep him in your thoughts and prayers. I am so pleased to tell you that he is improving day by day. He's gained back the weight he lost. He's much more secure and far less clingy. His eyes even seem to be less crossed. He dances soon as music is played, claps, and freely gives away kisses, both the spitty, slobbery kind and the blow-me-a-kiss kind. And every one fills this Mawmaw's heart to overflowing. What a joy he is, especially in light of the trauma he has endured. We had the great joy of visiting him at his grandparents' home this afternoon after church, where he lives with his dad. They are wonderful people and we are so thankful for their influence in Heath's life. I wanted to share some updated photos of our little man with you. Again, thank you so much for standing with us in prayer over him. I appreciate you so much!

Here's Heath with Bill, a very happy PawPaw

Somehow, by sleight of hand, Heath wrangled Grandpa's glasses out of his pocket.

Auntie Melly and Uncle Billy were loving some time with their nephew

    Praise God for His healing hand over Heath's health and joy for life again! He looks SO happy in these pictures and having the stable love of you all in his life will help him get through this faster than we, as adults, think. I said a prayer of thanks to God for loving this little man so much and for healing your family. I'm thrilled that you guys get along so well with Heath's dad and grandparents...all of you together will form a circle of love around Heath as he grows up and he will continue to flourish and bring so much joy and laughter to your lives. emoticon emoticon

    Big hugs,

    Yes, Heath does look great. All the love and support he has, not to mention G-d's intervention in his health and even before, making certain nothing worse happened, will make Heath flourish. Praying for Heath's mom.

    Adorable pics, especially the one with the glasses. So glad to hear he's doing well and God willing, he's young enough that we can pray he won't remember what he's been through. Having wonderful people like you and your family in his life will help tremendously!
