Today, I want to share Cole's story with you. Cole is the 8 month old son of my very dear friend, Sabrina and her husband Trey. He's also the little brother of Miss K, their beautiful 8 year old daughter. He is the other little guy I'm walking on behalf of in the March for Babies next month.
Cole was born on July 5th in East Meadow, NY at a healthy 8lb, 21in. However, despite how young he is, he has already endured so much. He spent his first few weeks in the NICU on a ventilator because he could not breathe on his own. The medical team feared he was born with a surfactant deficiency that would require a double lung transplant. They also discovered he was in renal failure with creatinine levels being three times what is considered within normal limits. He was transferred via helicopter to Children's Hospital of Philadelphia where he spent another month. However, by God's amazing grace, Cole's lungs seemed to be healing themselves and got stronger with each day. The doctors still don't know what caused his respiratory distress or how his lungs got better. However, his family and friends know it was God answering the many prayers lifted up for little Cole.
