Baby Christopher Update

As you know for months (now in the 9th month) we have been following the progress of Baby Christopher, and his New Heart.

He has been transferred back to the Hospital in Oregon but, alas, he is still in the hospital.  

The picture you see above was taken a couple of days ago.

As you can see, he is improving!

His heart is working great !

But his kidneys are still in total renal shutdown so he is still on dialysis.

So, even though he is better, he is still in the hospital, still in Renal shutdown, still on Dialysis, and he and his family still need your prayers! 

A few days before his transfer from the Hospital in Arkansas where his heart transplant was done, the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette newspaper posted a series of 3 articles (Aug 8, 9, 10, 2010) which detailed the saga of his experience from birth until just before his transfer back to Oregon.  (See links below).

They also did a 2 minute video which you will really want to see.  HERE’S THE LINK

And now, with that video by way of background, here are the links to the three articles mentioned above and to a photo gallery with oodles of pictures taken by the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.

Day 1: As boy weakens, kin wait, hope

Day 2: Hope, fear fill anxious hours

Day 3: High, lows mark path of progress.
