Udate on Jeremiah's Umbilical Hernia

We want to give you all an update on how Jeremiah's umbilical hernia is doing. His doctor told us that it could take 12-18 months to heal. That it is normal and that every child is born with an opening there from where the nutrition went in. The opening usually heals and closes within two weeks after birth, which is when the umbilical cord stump falls off. If it has not closed by the time the cord stump falls off then you can start to see a protrusion and now have an umbilical hernia. Which is what happened to Jeremiah.

But with your prayers and God's healing hand it has gone down a lot! It is not gone completely, but is definitely a lot smaller. We believe that it will be healed way before the doctor said. We wanted to encourage those of you who had and are praying for our Jeremiah. We thank you for your prayers and ask that God would pour out a special blessing on you for your faithfulness in prayer.

Thank you again for your prayers and support. May God bless you for all you do for our family!
