Update On Jonathan

Hello!

I have just received more information regarding Jonathan. The doctor says that he is 80% sure that he has Congenital Narphotic Syndrome, which is a defect in the kidneys. Right now, his kidneys are filtering some of the protein from his blood. He has less than 50% of the amount of protein as he should. The lack of protein is causing an imbalance in the fluids of his bloodstream, which is seeping through the veins and causing him to swell. They said that they can give him something to slow the blood flow to the kidneys, but that is only temporary. The end result of him having this syndrome is that he will have to have a kidney transplant. My parents said that Jonathan will be at the hospital for at least ten days. Please pray for him as well as our family. This is going to be a long road, since he will probably have to see a kidney specialist his whole life. I know the Lord will be with us through it all. Thank you all for your prayers!

In Christ,

Kevin

Dearest Wegner Family,
I will keep sweet, little Jonathan in my prayers. We have a God who heals! And does the impossible that we can never describe on this earth.

Abba Father,
I just praise You for You are an amazing God and our Great Physician. Father, I pray for Jonathan right now that You will begin to heal his kidneys at this very moment and we believe that You can do that. Father, I pray that You as our Sustainer and Strong Tower of life that You will hold each member of this family close to You. Comfort them, Father, and give them Your everlasting strength. Thank You Father for the blessing of little ones and heal Jonathan. Thank You, Jesus. In His powerful Name we ask, Amen.

Me and my family will continue to pray for dear Jonathan and your family.

I'll be praying for Jonathan and the rest of your family during this time! I know how trying it can be to have a little brother in the hospital and still have siblings at home.

I am praying here too...God can do anything, and He can heal little Jonathan:)

2 years ago, one of my little sisters was in the hospital when she was just 16 weeks old...I can understand how hard it is. Let us know how things go~

In Him,
Jenna
