Praises & Prayers for Nolan

THANK YOU for the prayers for our little Nolan! I have been overwhelmed, humbled, & grateful for the response & outpour of love for our baby. 
Yesterday morning, Nolan had his surgery at Egleston Hospital in Atlanta.  It was amazing the sense of peace I had Monday morning.  I know it was because of the many, many prayers from each of you.  Some of my biggest prayers requests were answered - the care for Nolan, the removal of the entire mass, & his reaction to the anesthesia.  Our doctors & nurses were wonderful- clearly communicating the needs of Nolan & taking care of him.  The surgeon did take the entire mass, ensuring anything unusual was removed.  Nolan was a rock-star - his little body handled the pain, IVs, Oxygen tube, tapes & tubes so well. We were able to be discharged this morning.
Now, more waiting...we will hear from our surgeon by the end of the week concerning the results of the mass.  Jonathan & I do have a peace that God is completely involved.  We have a peace of the steps we might have to take moving forward.  We have a peace because we know that all of you are praying.  THANK YOU!
NOLAN: on his way to the pediatrician

Two miracles in our home: Anna & Nolan
Watching Anna (another walking miracle in our family...another blog post) hold Nolan reassured me God works miracles.  It brought tears to my eyes.
We had a painting done for Nolan's nursery.  It reads, "Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift." 2 Corinthians 9:15.  We are thankful for Nolan.


  1. My prayers continue for all of you....I'm so happy to hear the news that Nolan went through the surgery ok. And you are right, Anna and Nolan are two miracles in your family! Love to all of you!

  2. So happy to hear that Nolan was a Rock Star during and after surgery. Praise God that you guys got to go home and be with Peyton. Still have you, Nolan and your family in my daily thoughts and prayers. Praying for good news at the end of the week!!!! Prayer works miracles!!! Sending love your way, Susan Breedlove
