Three weeks ago little Colton was born to my nephew and his wife. Colton arrived a couple of months early and weighed in at just 3 lbs.! Colton is having some problems, as most preemies do and last week he was transferred to another, area hospital for surgery. They implanted a shunt (reservoir) in his head to collect spinal fluid and blood, which was pooling in his ventricles, and allow this to be absorbed into his body. From what I hear, this is not too uncommon with preemies, though heartbreaking that these little ones have to endure such things.
Colton is doing his best to go home with Mom & Dad. Apparently he is a healthy eater because he is now up to 4 lbs. 10 oz.!! I had a message this morning that the Doctors are discussing another surgery for him but I have no details yet.
Colton needs all of the prayers and well wishes you can send his way! Please, think good thoughts for him and help to get him on his way home with his family.
