Thankful for medical advances
I'm thankful for medical advances. To put it quite simply - if it weren't for medical advances, a few important members of our family wouldn't be with us today. Carter, Brenna, and Evan were all given life through medical advances, no matter how basic. Evan's NICU stay was very typical of most preemie twins - helping his lungs grow and develop through treatment and time while limiting his exposure to other sicknesses. Carter's care involved surgeries that made his body compatible to life - he needed an exit for bowel so he could eat! Sweet Brenna - the medical advancements of our time, a doctor in the delivery room that had her diagnosed almost immediately, and the absolute blessing of a specialist in her area, have led to a THRIVING toddler. I can't imagine our lives without any of these miracle children. I thank God that he's given doctors and scientists the ability to provide healing to his creation.
