Home at last



Sorry its been so long since the last update, at the suggestion of my lovely wife i have now decided to create this Blog to post updates on Andrew's condition. We just got home from the hospital, it has been over 1 week since we left home and it sure feels good to be back. I have never seen JAX (our german shepard) so excited to see us in my life. We sure are sad Andrew is not with us but if he had been here he probably would have been licked to death. Speaking of Andrew....he has been seizure free for over 48 hours...woo hoo, Praise God...unfortunately he has been very sedated. Today they are taking him off one of his seizure medications and lowering the dosage on the other, We pray that when he comes to the seizures a thing of the past. I am confident that the Lord will complete the good work that he has started in my Son. I will never be able to thank all those who have lifted up Andrew in their prayers. All I can say is i am astonished at the response we have gotten from people litterly all over the world! We have a long way to go, i will do my best to let you all share in his progress..that is the least i can do. Again thank you for all your love, dedication and support, we are truely blessed.

Curt, Amanda and Andreeeeew!

curt, mandy and Baby Andrew,

hello from aunt becky (and uncle gary). i'm glad we now have a way to contact you.

congratulation on the birth of Andrew Alan Chadwick! what a beautiful name and a beautiful little boy. i love "chizzelwick"!

you seem to have a wonderful support system of friends and family who will strengthen you in the Lord. we add our prayers to all the others and know that God knows what he is doing and that he sent your son to you because he knew you would give him the best of care. Drew is a special gift to special parents and the years will only make it clearer to you.

God bless your all. may your little angel come home soon.

Tafe said...

Curt, Amanda and Baby Drew,

All of us in NY continue to pray for all three of you. We know Drew is in the best of hands and will bring you both much love and joy. We can't wait to meet your precious son and see you both.

We love you,
Tafe and family

Sara said...

Praise the Lord for Andrew's progress!!! Waahoo! We are so excited he is getting to nurse normally!

And Andrew (the big one) you sure know how to bless! What an awesome story that is and will be for years to come!

God is so good and we will continue to lift ya'll up!

I have been going through a Bible Study on Nehemiah recently and a verse reference in Jeremiah just struck me...it may seem so simple but the Lord just spoke powerfully...

"Behold, I am the Lord, the God of ALL flesh. Is there anything too hard for Me?" (Jer. 32:27)

We love you and we know that the God of all flesh, over All things, is with you! He loves little Andrew so much and there is NOTHING too hard for Him! Praise God for Room #3!!! Praise God for Nursing, and lower doses of Meds, Praise God for no seizures...We Praise God with you in every Victory, sweet friends! We love you all!! Sooo Much!

Chris and Sara

Thanks to God that baby Andrew is healing and you all can enjoy home sweet home again. My friends, family and I will continue to pray for you and yours! Love yas, Lindsay.

Laurie said...

You should have sweet Andrew at home by now. I am so grateful that you have been so blessed. Yes, it is painful to see others suffer, yet that may be their test of faith. Any encouragement we give or expressions of our own faith can help. I was just thinking of you and pray that all is well for Andrew's first night at home. Tell Grandpa and Grandma (Nana?) Chadwick hello for me and share my love with them.

Ann and Don Bergonzoni said...

Yeah! Andrew is home and in the arms of his loving parents. Heaven was VERY noisy with all the prayers and God listened to our prayers and knew what was in our hearts.
Now, it will indeed be a very Merry Christmas and the happiest of new years! You are abundantly blessed!
Ann and Don
