It remains a mystery. Casey quickly noticed something was off with her newborn son Hunter when he was just 2 days old.
“He could only eat about a half-ounce of formula at a time instead of the normal two ounces,” Casey said. “Any more than that and he would spit everything back up, or any pressure on his stomach would make him spit it back up.”
Doctors ordered X-rays and discovered a mass. The mass was so huge it took up about two-thirds of Hunter’s stomach.
“They actually showed us where it was and you could feel it. And that was probably the most heartbreaking part of it, is actually being able to feel the mass in his stomach that’s not letting him eat,” said his father, Jake.
The mass was life-threatening because Hunter couldn’t eat enough with it. He had to be sent to Denver, Colorado, for immediate surgery. Hunter was promptly airlifted. The family asked on Facebook for the prayers of friends and family .
“I didn’t know what to think, I didn’t know what to say. You don’t expect to see that in your baby that’s 2 days old,” Casey said.
Doctors said if the surgery was successful, it would be two to six months before Hunter couldogo home. The night before his surgery, Casey began to feed him.
“I was in the room by myself and I fed Hunter and he drank the whole two-ounce bottle, and he was perfectly fine,” explained Casey.
She didn’t want to get her hopes up, but after an MRI before surgery, something unthinkable happened.
“A while later, the doctor came in and she had a strange look on her face, which scared me to death. It’s like something happened, you know, and it probably is not good,” Casey recalled. “But she came in and she said, ‘We just got done with the MRI and I don’t know what they saw, but it’s not there now.'”
The mass was gone. Casey and Jake even have the medical records to show that it had disappeared from one day to the next.
“They couldn’t explain it and they didn’t really attempt to explain it. I just knew he’d been healed. I knew the Lord healed him. I remember looking at Casey and we just broke down and both started crying,” Jake said.
