Baby Oakley

Baby Oakley is now in the NICU at UMC. I did find out that he weighed 8 lbs. 4 oz. and is 21 inches long. As of about 3:00 they had done an echocardiogram of his heart and found that it is slightly enlarged and shows signs of distress, but is formed correctly. He is on a ventilator to help him breathe (He was able to breathe on his own but it was hard work for him). The doctors plan to do a CT scan later today, but we do not know when that will be exactly.

That is all I know right now. Please continue to pray for the doctors and the family. Also, remember the little kiddos at home that don’t really understand what is going on. The kids names are Sanders (6 yrs.), Wynn (3 almost 4), and Rebekah (2).

Thank you for the prayers.
