you all so much for all the prayers and support!

Please take some time to watch this. We are going
to do all we can to be sure that the hospitals in
Georgia understand better how to diagnose and treat this
extremely rare condition.

Tomorrow is March 11. Why is
this important? One Year ago tomorrow our lives
changed forever. This day took us down a road of
trials, triumphs, pain, tears and growth of our faith
beyond what our human little brains could comprehend.
This website has reached many people and thankfully
we've heard some of the stories about their coming to
trust in God or how God used this site to grow faith in
His power and love. Please continue to
share this with everyone. Stay in touch and tell
us your story.

We had our 4 month check up at the
pediatrician today. He's 15 lbs 9.5 oz and 25 1/4
inches long, 75% in weight and height. His scar is
thinning out nicely. The doctor just shakes her
head and says he's amazing. He got his first set
of immunizations and only cried for a minute. That
was a drop in the bucket compared to what he's been
through. He's still a tuff little guy.
|June 5, 2008
Joshua has gone to physical therapy
now for a month. He is back up to where he should
be as a 4 month old. The PT is amazed at how well
he has progressed in such a short time. She said
that his is really done with PT but she wants to see him
back in a month to be sure he's still progressing well
with all the physical development milestones. He's
reaching out and grabbing things to put in his mouth,
rolling from his stomach to his back in both directions
and once in a while we will lay him on a blanket in the
floor in on spot and in just a few minutes we'll find
him in a completely turned around position that we have
no idea how he got there.......How'd he do that?
|May 16, 2008
Life is gotten somewhat back to
normal now. Joshua is doing wonderful. His
appetite is increasing right on schedule. The
physical therapy is helping him get strong and back to
where he should be right now. Allison is adjusting
well to being back home and having her little brother
around again. She's very good with him.
We are still working on getting
appointments with all the different doctors that treated
Joshua at CHOA. It is so important to educate as
many as possible on the outcome of Joshua's condition.
We encourage you to share this website with anyone in
the pediatric field. The more people we educate
the less babies will loose their pancreas needlessly.
On a completely different note,
Kelly's sister Terri is having surgery for uterine
cancer on May 20 at 1pm. Our prayer is that they
will remove all the cancer in this procedure and will
not find any more cancer cells in the surrounding
biopsies they will test. We know from our own
experience how important prayers are in these
situations, so please pray with us for her complete
|April 27, 2008
Words just can't describe how
wonderful it is to have this little boy, Allison and us
all home. Halleluiah! Joshua is doing great.
I've checked his blood sugar one time since leaving the
hospital. It was 109....in perfect range.
He's starting to eat better and is happy as you can see
above. Those little smiles are just the icing on
the cake of blessings we are enjoying.
We will have a couple of follow up
doctor visits locally over the next couple of weeks.
The doctors in Phili have told us to watch for a couple
of side effects that are possible but rare. We are
very peaceful and assured that he is FULLY HEALED and
those doctor visits will just be another way to let
God's power of healing shine through.
We are so excited to be home and
know that many of you are anxious to come visit.
We would love to have you! We've missed seeing
familiar faces. Give us a call and let us know
when you would like to stop by.
Vance and Allison were at the
Peachtree Dekalb airport to greet us. I sat in the
back seat between Allison & Joshua on the way home.
Joshua started cueing and making sweet sounds. I
told Allison, Joshua is talking. She replies, He's
telling a story. I asked, What is his story about?
She says, Jesus! Later that evening the same
scenario and again Allison said Joshua is telling a
story about Jesus. This morning at breakfast
Joshua is cueing and smiling and we asked Allison what
Joshua was talking about. She says, Oh, he's just
talking, no story. From the mouth of
|April 25, 2008
Today is the day we have been working and praying
for since March 13 when he went into the hospital.
Joshua is coming home today! Angel flight picked
up Kelly and Joshua in PA this morning and I expect
them at Peachtree Dekalb airport sometime early
The doctors say he is CURED. He passed an 18 hr
fasting test yesterday to complete this amazing
journey. Kelly will update the website soon so you
can all see us at HOME!
Thanks again for a level of support that was more
than we prayed for.
Vance, Kelly, Allison and Joshua
|April 22, 2008
Today Joshua did a test fast which
lasted for 8 hours. He ate at 8am and then was not
allowed anything until 4pm. He did perfect!!! He
didn't even fuss much at all and the lowest blood sugar
reading was 79. This is in preparation for the 18
hour fast scheduled for tomorrow night.
We are also in preparation of heading home. Vance
is actually leaving tomorrow to start driving home with
a great friend. Arrangements are being made for
Joshua and I to fly home on Friday.......provided he
passes the BIG fasting test. Everyone is pretty
confident that he will do fine. So with all that
said, pray for Joshua's comfort and peace in going
through this.....I wouldn't be able to do it, Vance's
safety in driving home.
Vance will have my computer with
him so I won't be updating the website for a day or
two........the next update on the web will be when we
are home!!!!! PRAISE GOD!!!!!
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you
for all the prayers and support.
|April 21, 2008
Joshua is doing great maintaining his
blood sugar. We thought they were going to the
fasting test today, but they choose to wait for a few
days until he is eating better. It's looking like
if all goes well we may come home by the end of this
week. YEAH!!!!! So keep saying prayers and we'll send
updates as soon as possible.
|April 20, 2008
Even though the team will not say it,
I will say he is healed! He has kept his blood
sugar in line since the surgery (10 days ago). The
goal now is much like any other person that has been in
the hospital for over 5 weeks. We have to get his
strength up and get him eating well. It will just
take a few more days here. This has been an
amazing time where GOD and friends have been more real
than ever before in life.
We think of all of you praying and
again wanted to tell you how special you are and how
much you're caring and prayers have strengthened us.
We look forward to seeing you soon and show you first
hand what your prayers have done.
|April 18, 2008
WE ARE OUT OF ICU......YEAH!!!!!!
We have moved back to a normal
room today. They took the PIC line out of his left
arm and stopped all IV fluids. Is blood sugars
have stayed from 77 to 130 for 8 days now. He is
on full feedings now to which he's doing okay, but not
as well as the doctors would like. We just have to
be patient with his little system. Looks like we
could POSSIBLY be heading home by next weekend.....we'll
Joshua was born with a full head
of hair as you can see from some of the previous
pictures. Through all this he's not gotten to be
on his tummy or be held much in the last 8 days so most
of his hair in the back is gone. He has also lost
most of his hair on the sides due to tape pulling it out
from the PET scan and surgery. We came in this
morning to see him sporting a mohawk/rock-n-roll doo.
The nurses just love this little guy. One of the
nurses took a picture with her phone and will send it to
us soon I hope.
|April 16, 2008
Joshua started eating formula this
morning. He ate, no spit ups, burped, pooped and
went right back to sleep. PRAISE GOD!!!!!
He's smiling at almost everyone he sees. He slept
through the night last night. Wouldn't that just
be the icing on the cake if not only he's healed but
he's sleeping through the night too. Hopefully in
a few days we'll get out of the ICU and back to a
Kelly and Allison have really
enjoyed their time together. Allison really needed
some mommy time. Our house evidently wanted some
love too. We endured some hail damage and had to
replace the entire roof, plus the hot water heater
decided to start leaking so that's being replaced too.
Despite all the crazy things happening all around us
we're still holding fast to Gods love and promise that
He will not give us more than we can handle. We've
got to be close to the limit!!!!
|April 14, 2008
Joshua is doing wonderful! They
have stopped the Morphine. The IV in his right
hand was removed. If you remember our next thing
to watch for is his digestive system to wake up.
We were told it would most likely be a week. Well
not for our little warrior! He had THREE poopy
diapers this afternoon! We never thought we would
be so excited to see a poopy diaper. So this means
the surgery team has to now make the decision as to when
to let Joshua start eating and weaning off the IV
nutrition. We're hoping for this to start
tomorrow. They will allow him to have 1/3 of his normal
amount at each feeding the first day, 2/3 on the second
and then full feedings on the 3rd. Joshua is still
maintaining his blood sugar level at around 120 to 130
which is perfect.
Kelly flew home Sunday night to be
with Allison for a few days. We could tell be the
phone conversations Allison needed some mommy time.
Kelly will be back up to Phili on Thursday. We
encourage you to praise God for the awesome things he
has done during all this, but still pray for wisdom,
protection and healing. We're not home yet.....but
we can definitely see the finish line.
The picture of Vance and Joshua
was taken this morning by one of the staff.
There's just nothing more moving than seeing a father
snuggling with his son. What a great daddy!
|April 12, 2008
We were amazed this morning at how
wonderful Joshua looks. His color is great.
He is sleeping really peacefully. Blood sugar
readings all during the night were perfect. No
changes in medicines for pain. The doctors
managing his pain took the epidural out at 10am and
Joshua did fine. The full effects of the epidural
will wear off in a couple of hours. We'll see if
he's still doing okay with pain at that point. WOW
the power of prayer is just undeniable. Vance and
I even slept well last night. We just can't say
thank you enough for all the prayers.
|April 11, 2008
We are so thankful for all the
prayers. God has brought us through this past
month with an amazing amount of peace and confidence.
On a completely different level now is the helplessness
you feel when your baby is lying there crying and
wincing in pain. This part is so hard. On
one hand you want to stay there every second by his
side, on the other hand the pain in your heart and
helplessness gets to be just too much and you have to
leave. Please pray for us all to have a lot of strength
to get through the next few days.
Joshua seems to be doing well as far as blood sugars and
swelling. He is on morphine along with the
epidural for pain. The epidural isn't exactly like
what is used on adults. It is more localized to
the specific area of surgery. Any mom that has had
one knows that typically you are numb from your tummy to
your toes. Joshua's is only numbing the area just
above his belly button and just a little below.
Anesthesiologist try to hit the painful area
completely but really can't tell until after surgery if
they got all of the painful areas. This is why is
on morphine too.
Doctors and Nurses both tell us he
looks really good and is progressing as expected.
Most Hyperinsulinism baby's blood sugars swing high for
too long after surgery requiring doses of insulin to
bring it back into normal range, but Joshua's blood
sugars are perfect....no insulin needed....PRAISE GOD.
|April 10, 2008
PRAISE GOD!!! Joshua did great
through surgery. Dr. Adzick removed 15% of his
pancreas and rerouted some of his bowels. His
initial comment is that he got all of the focal lesion.
We were really surprised to see how good he looked after
a 3 hour surgery. They placed an epidural that he
will keep in for a couple of days to help with pain.
He is in relatively no pain this evening.
It will be up to a week before his
digestive system will start functioning again. He
will be in ICU until he's able to eat, pee and poop on
his own. He will then move out to a regular room.
They will then wean him off of all IV fluids and
medicines. His last test will be to do a 18 hour
fast and maintain his blood sugar on his own. If
he passes this, it means he is CURED and we can come
home. Which is thought to be around two more weeks from
|April 9, 2008
Surgery is tentatively scheduled for
in the morning at 9:30am. It will take anywhere
from 2 to 8 hours. He will be under general
anesthesia and they will place an epidural to assist
with pain management for a couple of days following the
God is sooooo cool. When the anesthesiologist came
to talk to us this evening, he walked over to Joshua to
look at him and check pulse and lung strength.
Joshua was lying flat, playing, waving his arms around.
When the anesthesiologist touched his arm and looked
down at him Joshua became perfectly still and gave him
three of the biggest smiles we've seen. It touched
me so deeply that Joshua felt so at peace and him
smiling so big was like God giving us an outward
assurance that He is all over Joshua.
Tomorrow during the surgery and
especially afterward Vance and I will need extraordinary
strength to deal with seeing our little one being all
hooked up on tubes, wires and in pain. Joshua
being so joyful through 90% of this experience has been
Gods blessing to us. He's not looked sick. He's
looked perfect. Tomorrow is going to be tuff.
We are amazed at all the people
visiting the website and all the emails from strangers.
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!
|April 8, 2008 - REVISED!
the CT & PET scan this afternoon. Joshua has a focal
lesion located in the head of the pancreas, which means
it looks like the overactive cells are all concentrated
in one area. The tuff part is that it looks like the
lesion is almost as large as the head itself. They are
planning on doing the surgery on Thursday midday.
During surgery they will take several biopsies that will
go immediately across the hall to pathology. They will
display them on a screen that the pathologist and the
surgeon will see at the same time. He will then
determine how to proceed with the surgery.
prayed with the surgeon, Dr. Scott Adzick. So please
join us in praying for Dr. Adzick personally and the
total healing of Joshua.
you all so much for the encouraging emails and stories
of miracle healing you’ve experienced or know of. We
apologize if we don’t personally respond back to each of
you immediately. Please know that we can feel the
strength, peace and power that God is giving us through
Tuesday 12noon : This morning Joshua was suppose to
have the PET scan at 11am. This has now been
rescheduled for 3pm. The F-Dopa that is the radioactive
isotope they didn’t feel was pure enough so they are
making a new batch. YES….we want them to have
absolutely the purest stuff possible so we will gladly
wait……so pray….pray loud…..pray specifically…..talk to
God like he IS your best friend, father, and you need
His help, we are.
Everything is now pushed back...we will learn the
results of the PET tomorrow and the tentative surgery
date is now Thursday evening.
|April 6, 2008
Today is the beginning of preparing
for the PET scan on Tuesday and surgery on Wednesday.
This morning Joshua got his last dose of Octreotide....the
medicine that has helped in keeping his blood sugar up
in normal range along with the IV fluid containing a
sugar solution. It's a delicate situation because
we have to be sure to monitor his blood sugar on a more
frequent basis. The doctors have increased the
concentration of Dextrose solution in his IV fluids and
the amount of fluid flowing into him per hour.
Right now they are planning on
doing the PET scan process at 11am on Tuesday. The
surgeon will meet with us that evening to discuss his
findings from the scan. He will talk with us about
exactly what he plans on doing with Joshua's pancreas,
IF he finds anything. We still are praying for the
miracle of total healing without surgery, God willing.
Continue to pray for complete
healing, protection, wisdom for the doctors and
caregivers, strength and patients for us. Being
away from home for a week is starting to wear on our
nerves. We finally got out yesterday and toured
the Museum of Natural History, that was nice. Temp
is in the 50's during the day and very windy (cold
If you have any questions, please
We'll try to answer questions via the website or emails.
|April 4, 2008
Joshua has done really well over the last 24
hours. His blood sugars are being maintained good with the
IV fluids and one medicine now. We need to hold this until
Tuesday next week. We are on the path for surgery planned
for Wednesday. God is more than welcome to go ahead and
just completely heal him. That's what we are boldly
praying for. How cool would it be for Joshua to just start
maintaining on his own and baffle the doctors....HEALED.
Wouldn't that be an incredible testimony for Joshua. If
God has other plans, we are going to sit tight until Tuesday
keeping Joshua stable.
I (Kelly) am only able to send emails when
we come to the Starbucks a couple of blocks from the hospital.
Receiving them is okay any time. We greatly appreciate all
the encouraging emails. THANK YOU!!!
|April 2, 2008
Today we pretty well confirmed that next
Tuesday we are having the PET scan and surgery on Wednesday
4/9/08. Joshua's blood sugars have been up and down all
day. The professionals here give us the confidence that
what is going on is typical of a infant with HI.
We are going on week three of being in
hospital. Please keep praying for protection, wisdom and
complete healing of Joshua when all this is done.

|April 1, 2008
journey to healing continues as we are now at Children's
Hospital of Philadelphia. Funny they call the place CHOP.
Does not sound like the kind of hospital you would like to
be at huh??
news is this place leads the nation in the condition he has
called Hyperinsulinism. It is tricky to diagnose and tricky
to remedy. They are trying different meds now but he is not
responding favorably. He is stable enough to be safe but
not stable enough to go home. We may be on the path to
surgery. There is a PET scan set for next Tuesday with
tentative surgery for Wed. They tell us that when the PET
Scan can identify focal regions that are troublesome,
surgery can be a cure. All of this will keep us h
stop there and just ask for all of you to continue to pray
for healing and Protection for Joshua and strength for us.
As a side
note, you will never guess the name of the chief of this
department and all around guru ……..Dr Charles Stanley.
How about that ? All of these people study under him and
evidently he writes the university text books and so on.
You have to tell Andy.
To GOD be the glory
Joshua's blood sugar has been up and down a
bit overnight. We came into the room this morning and a
crowd of nurse practitioners and nurses all gathered around.
His blood sugar dipped down to 22 and thankfully they had it
back up to 96 within an hour. Its not a good feeling to
walk into a room and six people are gathered around. On
the other hand, it is good for there to be six people gathered
around taking care of him verses none.
We met Dr. Charles A. Stanley who is the
Chief, Division of Endocrinology.....not
the preacher at First Baptist Atlanta.
He further explained what they are hoping for when the PET scan
of the pancreas is done. They hope to see a focal point of
cells that are over producing insulin. This would mean
that they can go in, remove that point and most likely be
completely cured. The other possibility is that they would
find that the entire pancreas is over producing. This
could mean they would remove a possible large amount of his
pancreas and run the risk of making him diabetic....which they
say is easier to manage than hyperinsulinism.
We still ask for
your prayers of healing, protection and wisdom for everyone
involved with Joshua. It's so difficult to think this is
all glorifying to God, but we trust in His power and control
over ALL things. He won't give us more than we can handle.
I question this sometimes now, but know it's true.
God has given me a peace and feeling of pure trust like I've
never experience. It really is beyond understanding unless
you've experienced it for yourself.
|March 31, 2008
For the last 24 hours Joshua has had blood
sugars running from 82 to 368 to which the doctors are okay
with. They're strategy is to see if he will stay stable
just using medication. They want to get him off of the IV
fluids completely. They are purposely using this week to
study his patterns and get him on the right combination that
will stabilize his blood sugar without the IV, They have
tentatively set the date for the PET scan for April 7.
Vance is exhausted from driving up. He's been taking naps
every chance he gets.
Joshua is eating good, happy and playful.
You would never think anything was going on with him.
||March 29, 2008
Yesterday afternoon we got word that
they had scheduled a transport team to fly Joshua to Children's
Healthcare of Philadelphia. One of the doctors had
mentioned this briefly before but with really no time frame as
to when this would happen. They've told us to plan on
being there at least a month. So with in 18 hours, we had
arrangements for Allison, the dogs, travel maintenance on
the car and folks looking after the house. This morning at
11 am Joshua and I took off in a Lear Jet for Phili. I
told Joshua he was pretty special getting to fly in a Lear Jet
for his first flight and that if he ever does it again it better
be for fun, not a medical transport. Vance is packing all
but the kitchen sink and driving up.
We made it in fine. Joshua is at
Childrens Hospital of Philadelphia, room 8s15
We will be staying at the Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House for
a little while and will be able to get snail mail at the
Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House

Joshua has had a few ups and downs today, but they have been
controlled. The doctors wanted to get some lab test done
if his blood sugar dropped and boy did it, 17! They had
him back up to 80 within 30 minutes. He was monitored very
closely and never showed any signs of his level being that low.
The doctor and two nurses were all right there and didn't leave
until they got his level back up. They will be checking
his blood sugar levels every hour through the night.
|March 25, 2008
Well we are still in ICU. The good news
is that he has been showing us perfect
blood sugar levels since Sunday. He
still has IV and medication to help but
we are trying to turn that support down
slowly and let his body regulate. I
think GOD is answering our prayers to
Keep praying for protection and healing
for Joshua . Pray for GODs hands to be
on all the care givers and strength for
We are praying for huge blessings for
all of you who are praying and helping
Thanks for the love
Vance and Kelly
First thanks for
all the prayers and help. It has also been nice to see many
of you. Remember the invitation is open to visit with us at
home or hospital.
We know God is
alive and working through all of this and we are ready for
his miracle in Joshua’s life. Joshua is still in ICU. They
are trying to keep a close eye on him in hopes of learning
what is causing his blood sugar to be so unpredictable.
They also want to be there for him if something drastic
happens. The one sentence is we still do not know a cause
for sure but we have a long list of what it is not. They
suspect insulin problems so the next step will be some
imagining studies next week. This is not a common situation
so they are in a one step at a time mode. (I will never
watch HOUSE again)
One big note is
that they had much confusion about his diet and finally they
have him on mothers milk. That is healing for Joshua and
mom! Kelly is so excited!
We are ready
for answers to all of these prayers. We anticipate HIS
great works. I want to see the look on their faces when GOD
heals him and all will know it is GOD!
Tonight will be
the first of many father son nights where we fast, pray and
read about the healing power of GOD in HIS word.
If you have a
favorite healing story or verse send it to me so I can read
it to him!
Thanks is too
Vance and Kelly

cases no news is good news, right?…..well that’s where we
are. None of the test have come back with anything that
really explains why Joshua is not maintaining his blood
sugar levels. The doctors have some ideas of what they
think is going on, but no real data to back that up. The
nutritionist came by this morning and said they are going to
mix a special formula for him to see if that will help wean
him off of the IV fluids and not max out the Diazoxide drug
that he is on. They want to do this until Monday
(3/24/08). Monday they will talk with Emory to see when
they can get him into have a P.E.T. scan of his pancreas.
The doctors are suspecting that maybe he has and over active
pancreas and this will be detected by the scan. So we will
still be in ICU for a while.
believe that Joshua’s purpose in going through all this is
to show us how far reaching God’s power really is. Someday
we’ll share some of the amazing stories of how God has used
this situation to teach and grow people all over the country
and be glorified through it all. I encourage you to come
visit, pray with us or just be a familiar face to say
hello. Joshua looks wonderful….his skin, coloring and size
is just perfect. If he wasn’t hooked up to an IV you would
never know that anything was the matter. Visiting hours are
between 8:30am to 8:30pm for anyone over 10 years old. They
don’t allow visiters to come in between shift change which
is 6:30pm until 7:30pm. If your already here that’s okay.
Give us a call before you come. Vance 770 238 9580 or Kelly
770 561 9345
praying specifically for the doctors and caregivers to have
wisdom, protection over Joshua and us and patients for us
all. We of course want Joshua to come home, but we really
believe he is
healed and God is still just using the situation…..it’s all
in HIS timing, not ours.
you, Thank you, Thank you for all the prayers and support.
|March 18, 2008
little guy just has everyone baffled. Last night he ate
well, right on schedule and the IV sugar supplement stayed
the same but yet his blood sugar still continued to slowly
drop. Thankfully the drops were still in a good range but
looking at the trend by 8am they will have gone too low.
The doctors have ordered a genetics test to look for
specific genes that could cause his body to not maintain
normal blood sugar levels on his own. They can take up to
two weeks to get results. We’re also getting back insulin
test and hormone test today. Hopefully they will shed some
light on what’s going on.
for continuing to pray for wisdom, patients and protection
over all involved and total healing of little Joshua.
|March 17, 2008
let me say THANK YOU so much for all the prayers &
support…..it really is powerful.
has done great over the last 24 hours. He is eating 2 to
4oz of formula every 2 to 3 hours like normal and is
maintaining his blood sugar well. They started dialing down
the IV sugar fluids just a tiny bit at a time all during the
night to see if he would keep his blood sugar up. With this
info, the path is to get him off the IV completely and
observe. If he maintains well they will move him from ICU
to a regular room either this evening or tomorrow. We are
still waiting on a couple of key lab test to come back this
afternoon. No one knows for certain what has caused all
Joshua gave us his first smile…..big open mouth, as if he’s
going to laugh out loud. Talk about melting your heart.
Sunday he smiled at us most every time we talked to him.
He’s getting lots of practice flirting with all the nurses.
Several nurses come to visit him before leaving their shift
each day. They are amazing people.
praying for the doctors, nurses and us to have wisdom,
protection, patients and full, complete healing for Joshua.
|March 15, 2008
For those of you that are
not aware of what is happening….Joshua had a seizure on
Thursday evening around 7pm to which we rushed him to
the local ER and found that his blood sugar was 3….NOT
GOOD. The Northside ER doc summoned for transport down
to Childrens Healthcare of Atlanta. It took until 3am
to get him stabilized and not having seizures. He has
been through a huge amount of testing trying to
understand what is causing the blood sugar to not
regulate on it’s own. When your child has tubes in
EVERY entry of their little body and no one can tell you
what is wrong it is the most helpless feeling.
They don’t believe that
his issues at birth are related and are leaning toward
the cause being an internal infection of sort….we won’t
know until a lot of the test results come back today.
He will be in ICU for
another day or two and in the hospital until at least
Wednesday at this point. The update this morning is
that he has maintained blood sugar readings in the 80’s
(normal is 60 – 120) with a small amount of
supplementation of glucose. YEAH!!!
We’ll keep updating as we
find out more.
Thank you for all the
support and prayers.
