Our baby is sick...really sick

I had a conversation with a close friend after the worship service about the situation of our soon-to-be-born baby boy Josiah. He doesn't have a facebook account, and as a college student had been out of town for a number of weeks this semester. So, he hadn't heard the news.

Maybe you haven't heard either.

Our new baby has a heart condition called Hypoplastic Left Heart. This condition is also complicated by an additional heart defect called a Restrictive Atrial Septal Defect.

Now, as I told this friends, we need your prayers, and want you to know what to pray for. So, my wife Erin and I have set up a website www.thewilsonheart.com . This site explains as much as we understand about our child's condition, and will chart our progress along the way. Also, if you are reading this post from my home site, www.milowilson.blogspot.com you will notice an RSS feed at the top right hand side of the page with any updates.

Please pray for us, shoot us an email or call. Please ask us any questions you may have. We are not the type of people who like to be private in these type of matters. Talking through things with all of you is very therapeutic for us.

We love you all, thanks!


  1. I came to your site to read your race report for Issaqueena's Last Ride. Great detail. Makes my decision about the event easier.

    Now I am praying for you child. My heart goes out and prayers are being lifted up.

  2. Thank you "Gotta Run" for your prayers. I am training for the Mt Mitchell race this year, but because of the coming baby I may have to miss. (we will have to see)However, I will probably have no trouble making the Isaqueena ride again.

    Funny thing is, I can't tell by your post whether or not you decided to try it!
