Hamby Update

As of yesterday, baby Bennett is doing better but not out of the woods. He was thought not to make it to LR on the helicopter but showed his determination in making the flight. When he arrived they hooked him up to a machine that pumped his heart and lungs for him(I am NOT in the medical field...sorry if that doesn't sound exactly right). I talked with a mutual friend who had just left Katye's hospital room and she s no longer accepting visitors as she was trying to rest so that she can make the trek to LR today. Please pray that she doesn't feel as though it is "her fault". The DR. said even had he been in the womb 2 more weeks it would not have mattered. He was not developing at a normal rate. He was 8 lbs, 14 oz(I think), the internal organs are underdeveloped.
Matt talked with Ben last night and they have Bennett sedated and on the machine. They are hoping that in time everything will mature and work on it's own. He just came too early and no one knew. This is only 2nd and third hand info, so I am trying to be as accurate as possible. Hailey has started a prayer group on Facebook and people are updating as they find out info. Bennett is by no means out of the woods. So please join us in prayer. Thank you!

I cannot imagine! Will definitely pray against GUILT and CONDEMNATION for that mama. It is not her fault!
