Military Child of the Week Salute – Baby John Brown
Monday, October 15, 2012
Today is a very special Military Child of the Week Salute as we give a “Two paws up” to a little Baby John who’s still really, really young.
Please say hello to Baby John who’s Daddy is in the U.S. Army Reserves. When Baby John’s Mommy was 34 weeks pregnant, his Daddy Sean was in Afghanistan and his Mommy – Heather – was rushed to the hospital with back pain and a headache. After she arrived at the hospital, Heather started having seizures caused by massive bleeding on the brain and she then slipped into a coma.
Little John Michael Thomas Brown was delivered by an emergency C-section.
Bringing Home The Browns
It took 72 hours for John’s Daddy, Sean, to get home from Afghanistan. When he arrived in Texas he received a police escort to the hospital where his tiny newborn son was. After seeing his son, Sean then went to Heather’s side. Heather is still in a coma and Baby John is getting stronger every day but the whole family still has a long journey ahead of them.
Our prayers and thoughts are with the Browns and we have picked out a very beary special Teddy Bear for Baby John which we will deploy to him this week.
Two paws up!
