This morning started off pretty much like last night ended. He is going from the ventilator to the osscilator. This is the machine that is better for his lungs but worse for my heart. There hasn’t been much improvement in the last 12 hours. I’m told things get worse before they get better…we’ll see. We’re all so tired…


  1. Brenda Rodgers says:

    Thank you, Stephanie, for the update.

    My prayers are with all of you.

    Love – Brenda in Fort Valley

    • Praying continuously for Creed and all of you who love him. My heart breaks for all of you going through yet, another crisis. I know God hears all of the prayers for Creed, and there are untold numbers of us doing so.

  4. Dianne and Ron Clark (Macon GA) says:

    Dear Creed’s MOM,
    I am sitting at my desk and can hardly work for thinking of Creed. I wanted to share with you that my husband and I take turns to pray every night. (He has even days and I have odd days). Regardless of who’s night it is to pray, Creed is the 1ST NAME on our hearts EVERY NIGHT! You don’t even know us, but little Creed has had an impact on so many lives….we are just two of SO MANY!

    (We know and love Dwight and Jean through the Emmaus community.)
    When Baby Creed was born he asked GOD,
    “They tell me you are sending me to earth tomorrow, but how am I going to live there being so small and helpless?”

    GOD said, “Your angel will be waiting for you and will take care of you.”

    Creed further inquired, “But tell me, here in heaven I don’t have to do anything but sing and smile to be happy.”

    GOD said, “Your angel will sing for you and will also smile for you.
    And you will feel your angel’s love and be very happy.”

    Again the small child asked, “And how am I going to be able to understand when people talk to me if I don’t know the language?”

    GOD said, “Your angel will tell you the most beautiful and sweet words you will ever hear, and with much patience and care, your angel will teach you how to speak.”

    “And what am I going to do when I want to talk to you?”

    GOD said, “Your angel will place your hands together and will teach you how to pray.”

    “But I will always be sad because I will not see you anymore.”

    GOD said, “Your angel will always talk to you about Me and will teach you the way to come back to Me, even though I will always be next to you.”

    At that moment there was much peace in Heaven, but voices from Earth could be heard and Creed hurriedly asked, “GOD, if I am to leave now, please tell me my angel’s name..”

    GOD said, “You will simply call her, MOM.”

    To Creed’s Angel on Earth:
    We asked GOD to be with your family….to bless them, guide them and protect them on this journey….

    So when the road you’re traveling on
    seems difficult at best….

    Just remember we’re here praying and
    GOD will do the rest!!!

    We will continue to pray for Creed and his incredible family every day!!! love from Macon, Georgia!

  5. Bebe Shamnon says:

    My heart is breaking for all of you. I have been and will continue to pray for Creed and all of you! Prayer is a powerful thing and I know there is a huge outpouring of prayer going up for you all right now!
    With love,

  6. Johnsie Brannen says:

He is an incredible little boy and has been through so much! God is good and will keep you all in his arms! I will keep all of you in multiple thoughts and prayers! Much love to all of you!


  7. sherry Manross says:

    I am sitting here praying for the Lord to heal Creed. I am silently encouraging Creed: “O baby boy, I know this is tough. Sweet baby boy you are being so valiant and trying so hard … I know God is with you, helping you to navigate … I am praying for you and your sweet mommy.”

  8. Carol Inlow, Albany, GA. says:

    Thank you for the updates, your updates make me feel apart of what your family is going through the good times & the bad times. I have become very close & feel very close to this little boy as if he was one of my own grandsons. I am praying for him every day. My heart goes out to you, Creed & family. You all will always be in my prayers throught the good times & bad times. God & I will be there in spirit with you all. Praying for a health recovery again for Creed.
    Love you & your sweet son, Creed.

  9. Cathy Buchanan Schwartz says:

    “The Lord stood at my side and gave me stength…” (2 Tim 4:17) May you feel His hand on your shoulder today. You are amazing and I am always inspired by your Faith and your Courage. Hang in there, Creed is being lifted up in prayer by SO many right now…and so are you.

  10. Gina Barrett says:

    Steph, we are praying for you and Creed. God has a plan for Creed and none of us know what that is. Just rest in Gods arms and look to him for anything you need. We Love You Both.

  17. Kim Hedrick says:


    Thinking of you and little Creed tonight, we will continue to pray for your momma’s heart and for Creed’s little mind and body, we know you are so tired mentally, physically and spiritually. You will be carried on the prayers of all the earthly angels who are so glad to intercede with God on Creed’s behalf. Thinking of you all and praying for a miracle. Love and prayers, Kim, Wade, Truman and Greyson Hedrick

  18. Karen Stewart says:

    Steph, I talked to Dwight this evening, he let me know how thankful you are to God for every day you and Creed have had, I am truly praying for many more-but most of all for Creed to be well, in Gods own plan. Love yall. Karen

  19. Gigi says:

    My sweet Creeder, God has called you to yet another incredible increedible journey. Together we will walk in His arms with faith that He will not forsake us. As I stand by your bed waiting for your healing and to see your sweet smile again, I pray that God in all of His glory will shine through you.
