Austin saw Dr. King today (GI/stomach doctor) and all is good! He cleared Austin to only come back on a "as needed" basis! We were thrilled with this and what a blessing to know Austin is doing so well! Dr. King was very pleased with Austin's growth and overall health... so we're good to go!
Stay tuned for more updates... in the meantime, here are a few prayer requests...
-Austin's next appointment with Dr. Colvin (cardiologist) is in March. Be praying for this appointment and what lies ahead for Austin.
-As Austin gets older we're getting closer to his third surgery. Join us as we're already praying for this process, where it will take place (Memphis), Austin's overall health going into surgery, the surgery itself, and his recovery. We'll keep you updated once we know more about this... it will probably be sometime over the next year.
-Also, join us in praying for a friend of Austin's. When Austin was in NICU at UAB, we had the privilege of sharing our journey with two other families who were also walking through the HLHS journey. One of these little boys, Mitchell, is having a hard time right now, physically, he has been in and out of Children's Hospital lately. Join us as we pray for Mitchell, and for his family!
Thank you!!! We couldn't do this without you!

Austin is TWO years old!!!
Its so hard to believe that he has already celebrated his second birthday! January 7, 2009 marked Austin's second birthday, with the 8th of January quickly reminding us that it has been two years since he was diagnosed with HLHS. And what an amazing two years it has been! God has proved Himself to be the INCREDIBLE God, and we'll forever be grateful for His goodness!
Austin, you're the blessing we never expected, thanks for being God's little miracle to us! We love you! Happy Birthday!!!
