    Hi fellow addicts,

    A month or so ago, our family was joined by a great-nephew, Wilder Finn Williamson. He is the first child of my nephew and his wife, Blake and Charlee Williamson. They knew well before birth that Wilder has a bronchial atresia, a mass in his lung. This is a rare condition....the mass was so large that it had moved his heart. After birth he has had sections of his right lung removed, and he is making remarkable progress. He has just recently been taken off an ECMO, a heart/lung bypass machine and placed on a regular ventilator. He was also on a paralytic drug, and is now off that as well. He's in for a tough fight, but he is in great hands at the Texas Childrens' Hospital in Houston. He will probably be there for at least 3 more months.

    Blake, Charlee and my sister Carol are asking for prayers and I told them that I would ask for prayers from my addicted friends.

    They will be setting up a Gofundme account to help with Blake and Charlee's expenses during their extended stay. They live in Starkville MS and are having to maintain their home there in addition to the Houston stay. I don't know how it works, but I'll ask an admin how to go about getting the info posted.

    Many thanks in advance, y'all.

    I have been practicing medicine for 30 years.....nothing tougher than a very ill child. Fortunately for all medicines' not so significant deeds.....procedures and treatments for children have taken an amazing turn for the better. My personal prayers for young Wilder.
