Baby Christopher Update

6 weeks and 1 day ago Baby Christopher, who is now almost 2 years old, received his Kidney transplant (from his dad).

He, Christopher, has been in the hospital post renal transplant allllll this time.

This, of course, followed his heart transplant from an unknown donor almost 2 years ago.  And he was in the hospital for over a year after that surgery because of the myriads of complications.

The picture today was taken in the hospital a few days ago.  You can definitely see the progress he has made in the past 6 weeks.

Why are we mentioning this now? you ask.

Because, at last, there is  GREAT GREAT NEWS!!

Christopher has been discharged from the hospital and as this DIT is being posted is on his way home !

The posting on his Caring Bridge website at 4:46 PM PST on Nov 9, 2011 tells of this great event.

it said that his mother …
 and Christopher left Doernbecher Children's Hospital in Portland moments ago 
to make the 110-mile trip home …  
Six weeks and one day after the transplant.

We are so thankful to our wonderful, merciful God for His continuing answer to our prayers.
(And we're thankful for all of you who have prayed for Christopher.)

Knew you would want to know so you could rejoice with him, his family, and his friends.

And, in closing, one more picture.


Because Christopher has now arrived at home and this is how he looks in his room with his family and his toys.   A real Praise the Lord !!!!
