"What would have become of me had I not believed that I would see the Lord's goodness in the land of the LIVING. Wait, hope for and EXPECT the Lord. Be strong and of good courage and may your heart (Ned) be sturdy and enduring.....Yes, Wait For and Hope For and Expect the Lord."

Psalm 27:13-14 (Amp)

Betsy & Travis heading to Ronald McDonald House

Everything with Ned is about the same now. Betsy and I were in the NICU for several hours this morning and sat in on the doctors' round-table discussion of Ned's progress and statistics, and overall, they are still happy with his status right now. It's hard to imagine that he's already 2 days old! God has blessed us with a healthy mother and a sweet baby with positive readings so far. Betsy and I are going to be heading back down to the NICU here shortly, then she will be discharged and we will go to the Ronald McDonald house right beside campus to begin our stay there. We are so thankful for resources like that, and especially for all your prayers so far. Please continue to pray for little Elijah Ned. Betsy will update blog later tonight I'm sure.
God Bless you all,
Travis & Betsy, Jack & Ned

Betsy and Travis,

Blair and I have talked about you both continuously since we left there on Monday! How wonderful it was to be there and just to watch you... your evident sense of peace, your sweet smiles and your ongoing faith in our Lord Jesus! How awesome He is... We are so thrilled to keep reading your updates and know that God is not finished yet... I am still praying for complete healing, and as someone said before, little Ned may not even need surgery before it's all over with! You are all so special to us, and we can't wait to visit again soon!
Love you... KIM<><

Travis & Betsy,
I heard the amazing news today about baby Ned!! I am praising God for his faith that he strengthened you both with. I also praise God for watching over Ned and giving you both such a wonderful miracle. I know in my heart that God has given you guys the strength to witness to others to "trust in God."

God's will has been placed apon Ned and it's apparent that God will see him through to a healthy recovery.

God knows us all before we're all born and God "chooses" just the right parents for each "miracle" that he brings to this world! How blessed is Jack and Ned to have parents like you both!!

I KNOW that he will do well and that God has him here for a special reason. I also pray that everyone who reads this blog will notice the IMPORTANT THINGS in life: FAITH, LOVE, FAMILY & FRIENDS! Other small things doesn't matter.

Ned is an example of God's mighty work in place. He has shown us all that with him ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE!

Jason and I have been praying for you all since we first found out about Ned. I want you both to know that our prayers will continue and I look forward to watching this handsome and precious baby grow!

God bless you all!
Danielle, Jason, Landrie & Ava Wofford
