The Second MRI

The results of the second MRI were the same as the last, except this time they spotted what might be/have been (?) a hemorrhage in the right frontal lobe of Lily's brain. As for her prognosis, we don't really know yet and won't know until the neurologist looks at the MRI results.

Besides the prognosis of the neurologist, we really won't know how Lily is doing until she reaches certain "milestones" in her development (eating on her own, sitting up, crawling, etc.). If she doesn't reach these at the normal times, then it will tell us that there are problems.

This is incredibly hard for both Laura and myself. We have never gone through something like this before. For Laura, it is especially hard because when we are home and she has to sit still and recover from her c-section, she has to do so without the baby that should be there. Also, being so far from the hospital and driving back and forth each day while trying not to neglect our other children is wearing us out. Please continue to pray for us and for Lily. Please don't get tired of praying for her recovery, even if it is just a simple "Hail Mary" or "Our Father" each day for her.

We love our daughter so much and will continue to do so no matter what happens. Because we love her, however, we want what is best for her, and that is to fully recover. So please keep praying! Pray that God's glory will be manifested through Lily. Thank you.


  1. our family will continue our prayers. Many hugs to you, Laura, especially.

  2. This is just heartbreaking. Know that you are in our prayers.

  3. Thank you for the much anticipated update. Be assured that the prayers will continue to be sent to Heaven on behalf of Lily and your family.
