A glimpse into our lives as a family with micro-preemies. Our twins boys (Lovingly referred to as our Miracle Men) were born almost 16 weeks early.

Our journey continues when our son Max was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 3. This is his story....

Sept. 15

Max is doing fairly well. He is retaining a lot of fluid which is making him VERY puffy. This is in turn pulling on his incision and making things very painful. The fluid is also making it difficult to breathe so his oxygen needs are up. He had a couple times today that they had to medicate him to a point of "stoned" just to get him to calm down.
The good news is that so far there isn't signs of rejection. Blood draws and ultrasounds show good levels and blood flow.

  1. Praying for pain relief for Max and that the doctors can get his swelling under control. Continuing to pray for good blood flow for his new liver and that there's not sign of rejection, EVER!! Praying also for strength for you family.

    Love you,
