Day 11 in the NICU

Jameson had a good day today. He had only 2 new blisters and new skin is growing. Thank you for all of your prayers. Dr. Knipe (the dermatologist) spoke with Dr. Lucky, the specialist in Cincinnati, she advised us to go to Miami. That is good news because it is soooo much closer to home. We will know in the next couple of days when we will be heading down to Miami. We are not sure when they are going to release Jameson. Please pray that Jameson stays healthy and strong. He is such a cute little guy with a fiery personality like his Dad (ha-ha). He will definitely let you know when he is not happy with you.

Todd and I really want to thank everyone for the encouraging comments. We look forward to reading them every night when we get home from the hospital. Your support has helped us get through such hard times and we cannot say thank you enough. Please continue to pray for a miracle for Jameson. God can, if HE wills, completely heal Jameson's skin. There is NOTHING our God cannot do for you and Jameson.

I am the women that lives here in Orlando and has EB as does my almost 6 year old daughter. Robin and I have spoken a couple of times already. I know she gave you my number but I do know you are busy, tired and overshelmed, but please call sometime. i'd love to talk to you. I also have some wound care supplies i'd be happy to share to help Jameson's skin heal a little faster. I am glad he is doing better and I really hope he get's to come home soon.

I have some tips that will make your trip to Miami a little easier on Jameson. EB and long car rides don't mix too well.

Take care

Dear Melisa and Todd,

David and I promise to continue in our prayers for you as you journey through this life...Praise GOD for this BEAUTIFUL and PERFECT little miracle in Jameson! Although we are all concerned for his good health, I am reminded of what a dear friend told me one time: "If you worry, don't pray...if you pray, don't worry." It is obvious that you have many friends and family lifting you up to the Throne of Grace requesting for complete healing of little Jameson's body, and God has promised us that He hears our every prayer and request. I pray that HE is your comfort and strength and refuge...and just to quote YOU, my sweet Melisa, remember and BELIEVE that YOU said, "You know, the thing is, I think we are always meant to live this dependent on the Lord." I believe you are right with all my heart. When we surrender to HIM completely, even when we don't understand, we can still be "OK" because we know we are in HIS HANDS...in HIS LOVING AND MERCIFUL, COMPASSIONATE CARE!

I am praying specifically, that the Lord will be GLORIFIED when HE turns this skin disease into something you no longer have to "worry" about...that HE COMPLETELY HEALS little Jameson's skin and all the effects of the disease, and pray this in the name of Jesus Christ, our Jehovah-Rapha--the Lord who HEALS. "God has provided the final cure for spiritual, physical, and emotional sickness in Jesus Christ...God can heal us".

WE LOVE YOU ALL...keep the faith!
Isaiah 38

Melisa, Todd and boys, we are so thankful that God gave Jameson the family that he did. That little boy could not have better parents. While we can't walk this road for you, please know that we will continue to walk it with you in our daily prayers to GOD Almighty.

We love you all and can't wait to see Jameson come home.

Melissa! I can't beleive that it is you! I got a prayer request from Hilda and I had no idea that you two were related. I have wondered SO MANY times how you were and what you were doing. I had no idea how to even find you.
The last time I saw you was at Red Bone Alley where you told me that you had accepted Christ! It thrills me to see that you are walking strong with the Lord. We are praising the Lord for little Jamison (cool name by the way) and praying for healing. I also am praying for your family. I could cry I am so happy to see you!
Love, Wendi (Fields) Norris

Please know that we are in constant prayer for your family. The Lord has big plans for your family. I know that is hard to see clearly, but He does. We, your family, will stand in the gap for you. We can hold up your arms when you become weary. There are lots of us, so we won't let your arms fall. We love you!!

Hi Melissa, Todd & Boys,
This is a wonderful site you all have created. We continue to pray for God's healing and for "new skin" for Jameson. You are all in our thoughts and prayers continually. I know this has been a real challenge for you and your family but it certainly sounds like you are strong and are holding up under the stress. We love you and will continue to pray for healing and strength for you.

Love,
Hilda
