Another positive appointment!

Looks like we made it another week without the need for a shunt! Today Carson had another head ultrasound to monitor hydrocephalus. The doctors determined that there is still no change from birth. This is great news! It's wonderful to leave an appointment relieved, especially because we feel so much anxiety prior to these visits. We never know what we're going to learn!
Carson is doing very well these days. He is now 3 weeks old. At his last pediatrician appointment he already weighed 7 lbs 5 oz!

Recently we learned that there is an orphanage in India of 48 children who are praying for Carson. It's amazing how fast and how far his story is spreading. Carson is a testament of God's faithfulness and goodness and we are feel so blessed to be a part of it.

Keep up the prayers!

Wow that is awesome that he still doesn't need a shunt! That will relieve at least half of the worries as he grows up! We are still keeping you all in our prayers.
