Grim Prognosis

Maybe we were premature in rejoicing about little Axel's health.  No matter what our Father is still in control, this news has not taken Him by surprise.  And it is because of the peace thet only He can give that I am able to write calmly right now.

The news from the scan of Axel's head is very grim.  The hydrocephalus was so bad that his brain did not develop.  The neurosurgeon said he will be an infant all his life.

Jenna & Jake have a long road ahead of them.  It will only be by God's grace and mercy that they will be able to stay strong and be loving parents to this tiny baby.

Pray.  Pray.  Pray.

Not only for healing for Axel, but for his parents.  For his grandparents, uncles, aunts and cousins.  For strenght to face the long road ahead.  For peace and wisdom.  For the doctors treating him, for the hospital staff that care for him.

We don't know what lies ahead.  There will be more procedures and he has to maintain his body temperature and be feeding from a bottle before he can be brought home.
