Whittaker Overstreet Wetherell

8/4/09 UPDATE:
Praise the Lord!
As of 7/18/09, Whitt is home and doing GREAT!

Whittaker (Whitt) Overstreet Wetherell was born C-section in Houston yesterday at 31 weeks. He is a tiny 3 lbs and 3 oz, 15" long. Whitt is currently in the NICU and his doctors say that the next 72 hours are critical. He is currently breathing on his own, and we ask that you pray this continues. Pray that his mom and dad, Corey and Andy, find continued strencth in the Father, and that Corey recovers quickly.

6/12/09 UPDATE
Whitt has been put on a ventilator. He began with 65% oxygen, but as of last night was down to 37% - great news! Corey is feeling much better and has been able to go see him several times.

Here is a picture of Andy and Whitt.

UPDATE 06/13/09

This morning Dr. B let us know that although Whitt is doing okay as of now, he would feel better if they moved him to Children's Hospital in Houston. They are coming to get him within the hour, and Dr. B assures us he will be in great hands there. As of now, they have given him plasma and blood as well as medicine to strengthen his lungs. The next 48 hours are very crucial, as they will do the brain scan Sunday or Monday morning to see if he his brain is bleeding. Please pray for a safe transfer to Houston, and over these next couple of days.

Corey is doing great. She is getting out of the hospital tomorrow, and will go to Houston to be with baby. She and Andy got to touch him, and be with him again today, and it was the most amazing thing i have ever seen. Her and andy are being so strong, and trusting in god to take care of everything.

I will write again with updates later today or tomorrow.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for all the prayers. Please keep them coming.

From Corey: Whittaker is also doing really well today, the sonogram of his brain came back and there was NO bleeding, which is a HUGE praise. He is completely off the ventilator and is breathing on his own. Praise the LORD!!!! He is definitely our little 3 pound fighter. It is crazy how I can love something so much while I have only touched the round of his foot and seen him twice. It is a great reminder of how much God really does love us as his children and how He has the power to instill so much love in us for someone else


  1. Praying for your sweet baby to be healed and home safe with you very soon.....

  2. My three year old was born at 30 weeks and only weighed 3 lbs. 1 oz. Praying God will continue bless your family and that you will soon all be home enjoying that little guy that much more.

  3. Beautiful blog! My husband has been a neonatologist for the past 20 years, and I was a former NICU nurse before becoming a peds nurse practitioner. The little ones in the special care nursery will always have a tender place in my heart. Will be checking back often and lifting these precious bundles in my prayers.
