Baby Update



I am staying at the hospital, so I only get to the computer in the mornings when I return to 
shower and change, but I wanted to thank you for your prayers and ask that you continue to
hold up little William in prayer.  Mom (Sis. D) is improving and was able to go and see the baby
yesterday for the first time since he was born, she was happy about that.  William seems to be 
responding well to the medicine given to him to help develop his lungs (Survanta a surfactant) and
the doctor hopes to start backing him off of the respirator bit by bit beginning today.  I enclose
a few of the early pics, not too flattering with the tubes, but a handsome boy nonetheless.  Notice 
the dent in his chest, that was one sign of the respiratory distress syndrome, but it is now almost
gone!  Thank You Jesus!!  God bless and thanks for your prayers.  Again if you want to call us,
from America dial (011639154465866) or send a text message to that number.

Dear Bro. & Sis. Devonshire,
Congratulations on the birth of your beautiful baby! I'm so glad you're sharing his early days with us--so we can pray for him and you, and so we can look back later and see what the Lord has done.

Glad to hear you're feeling better Sis. D. Pretty soon, the hospital days will be a faint memory and you will be home, delighting in William's every movement and sound.

We are praying for you all. Please keep us posted, as time permits.

With love and prayers,
Angie, Wayne & Nick Eury

Dear Friends,
So glad to hear sweet, little William has arrived, we are praying for him that he continues to grow stronger. Also glad for Mom, I know she is glad that part is over, I know because I just went through that, it is a big relief! We will continue to pray that she recovers quickly and that things go well for her. We love you all and CONGRATULATIONS on your new, precious baby boy! Love Bro.& Sis. Brill & Alyvia

Dear Bro.& Sis. Devonshire,
Congratulations on your newest church member. You are in our prayers, and we know Jesus loves the little children. Thanks for the pics. We're so happy for you both, and are looking forward to more updates. We'd call, but I think its cheaper to call Mars than you folks from Germany! We're on Yahoo IM though, and we can talk live through that if you have that also. God bless, The Jordans
