UPDATES

Hi guys! I cannot believe that it is May already!! Time sure does fly when you're having fun!! Things around here have been very exciting the past couple of months! We celebrated Dylan's 2nd birthday! YAY!! I cannot tell you how exciting it is to be able to celebrate something that means so much to us. Every year of life with Dylan is a blessing! Every minute of every day of his life is an answer to prayer. I cannot imagine our lives without our little guy. I love to watch people's faces when they see him running around at church. We had so many people who were praying daily for him, and for his life. You can see the joy of answered prayers in their eyes. He has touched so many lives, and God is using him still to show the POWER of PRAYER. It's amazing to see what God has done and we are overjoyed that we are on the receiving end of those answered prayers!!
Another answered prayer....Dylan's pressure in his eyes is PERFECT!! He went in two weeks ago for his 3 month pressure check, and sure enough, the pressure was in the perfect ranges! I sat in the waiting room praying for good pressure, but in the back of my mind, I was sure I was going to hear bad news. I have grown accustomed to hearing bad news. I was so surprised to hear the good report from the doctor! But WHY am I surprised? We serve a mighty and all-powerful God and He alone holds the future in His hands. Thank you LORD for healing Dylan's eyes! The Doc said that the pressure in both eyes were in the lower ranges. He also did a full eye exam and said that he CANNOT see any signs of damage from the glaucoma!! AMAZING!! Dylan's eyesight has even improved a little!! What an amazing report to hear! PRAISE GOD!
We also attended a Charity Golf Tournament sponsored by UFCW99this past month. We were asked to come and speak to raise support for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. It was a HUGE success! God used Dylan's story to reach into the hearts of people. At the event, we were also very unexpectedly blessed. People started giving us their money from winning the tournament, and also giving Dylan their raffle prizes! One of the prizes raffled off was a go-kart!! And guess what? They gave it to Dylan! He is obviously too small for it...but daddy will enjoy it for him! I love to see how God provides in the most unexpected ways! Thank you to all of the people who attended the event and for blessing us with your generosity!

These last couple of months have been a whirlwind, full of blessings and unexpected surprises! We are looking forward to a wonderful Mother's day and Father's day and celebrating LIFE as a family. Thank you to each and every one of you who keep us in your prayers and who have been by our side ever since our journey began. We love you all so much!

Love, The Praskins

  1. Checking in again and AMAZED! As you spread the word of his fight do you include the donated cord blood? It is amazing how few know and I can't imagine what could be done if more donated what would be medical waste. Thank you for making me happy I donated.
