From Moscow-Pullman Daily News:
The first thing 2-year-old Waylon Reid did upon waking in a Spokane intensive care unit Sunday was ask his mother for chocolate.
After he’d nearly drowned in a pond on his grandparents’ farm near Troy on Friday evening, doctors told Waylon’s parents, Julianne and Zachary Reid, the outlook was grim. Waylon, however, has confounded all expectations. By Saturday morning, he’d opened his eyes and after a tumultuous weekend, he is walking and talking on his own and doctors have cleared him to be sent home. “We reached out to everybody we could and put them on every prayer chain. … We’ve heard that he’s on prayer chains in Africa, the Philippines (and) all across the state,” Tawny said. “He is on so many prayer chains not only in the States, but across the world and we can’t help but think that … God had a hand in this because nobody expected him to live.”
