ALERT FROM LITTLE BEAR
Friends and Family,
Early this morning, at 3:00 am, baby William began to show signs of trouble. Tests were taken which showed bleeding on the brain and the lungs. These are both the most serious of combinations. The first 8 days outside the womb of a 23-24 week preemie (called a micro-preemie) are most critical.
We have been told
that the medical prognosis for William is very grim. It would seem that if the
Lord does not intervene immediately, baby William will have his going home to
heaven very soon. After many days of crying in travail for this child to live,
the Lord has given all the Wheelers and the Goforths the peace to trust in Him
no matter what--not our will be done, but His. Jesus exercised this prayer in
the garden, just hours before He was crucified for our sins. He too learned when
there is no understanding, that our will must be submitted to the Father in Heaven
Who sees the past, present, and future.
Noelle was discharged
from the hospital yesterday, and she and Josh (and the rest of the family) are
now staying at her Aunt Edna's in Colorado Springs, just a 15-minute drive from
the hospital. We recognize this as a part of the Lord's provision of mercy and
grace so far from their home in San Antonio. I
will keep you posted.
