Many of you joined in praying and following his story (you can go to my sidebar and click on it if you want to read it). What a wonderful little guy! He exuded energy and joy, even when he was at his sickest. He touched the lives of so many people.
Then he got better - he got to go home - he lived on a farm in the Nashville area and loved his life there with his family.
I didn't check for a long time. Assuming he was doing okay. It must be the Lord who prompted me to click on that button a couple of days ago. I found that he was not doing well. I was so sad. I signed up for the Care Pages updates. Two days later, this was the message from his daddy:

To our Dearest Family and Friends,
Our hearts were broken this morning as our sweet little Micah slipped from our loving arms into the arms of our loving Lord. Though our hearts are so full of grief, we know that he is free of pain and ‘pokies.” He is running the streets of gold like he was running the hills of Tennessee and the hallways of the hospitals.We are so very thankful for each of you as you have lifted us up in prayer and kindness over the past two years.
God has been so good to carry us through this most difficult time in our lives. May we remember the sweet smile that Micah had on his face even through the many tough times that he endured. May we also face life with the same veracious spirit that he portrayed each and every day. He loved each one of you and I know that he has had a huge impact on all of our lives.May God bless each and every one of you. Micah would always say as I was heading out the door, ”Daddy, wait for me.” Well now, Micah, your earthly father is saying “Micah, please wait for me” because I too want so much to hold hands together again in our heavenly kingdom.
