Family, Friends, and Prayer Warriors,
We are so humbled by your outpouring of prayer and support for our daughter Adalynn. On Tuesday, 9/17, twelve hours before the rewarming process began on our precious daughter we called out asking you to approach the throne in prayer on our behalf. God provided prayer warriors in the masses and across the globe and we praise God for your prayer commitments covering all 24 hours of the rewarming process. We give thanks that you have and will continue to pray for Adalynn and our family.
Following the rewarming some additional tests were completed. A continued prayer request for Adalynn involves the findings from the MRI of her brain. This test showed that her entire brain has been affected by the lack of oxygen during the C-section birthing process; specifically the 13 minutes that her body went without a heartbeat. The medical interpretation from this test is that Adalynn will likely not have any cognitive or physical function because of this injury, but we know that God is not limited by medical interpretation.
The past 36 hours have been a whirlwind of emotions to say the least but our God has been constant. We are clinging to His promises and every victory! We praise God that we have been able to hold Adalynn for several hours since she has been rewarmed. Her kidneys have begun to function better and just this morning her breathing tube was removed from her throat. She is now receiving assistance through a special breathing device in her nose. God has done many great things! The doctors are working to improve Adalynn’s breathing and down the road will need to insert a feeding tube for her nutrition. Once these steps are complete and her breathing is stable, Adalynn will likely be able to come home with us! We do not know how long this could take, but we praise God that our daughter will come home. We are so thankful for the beautiful daughter God has blessed us with and we continue to pray that God will continue to do miraculous things in her life.
No words can thank you for your love and support. God is just beginning to write Adalynn's testimony and we give thanks for her life.
Please use this information to update the prayer warriors you called upon and express our thankfulness.
