Sweet relief

We are sitting here, calmly, listening to Leo breathing. Well, more like snoring. And he is breathing room air!!! No life support, though he does have a femoral IV which works great and saves him from having needles in his hands or feet. Wow. This guy is amazing. He looks great, and the surgeons came out to us smiling. What a different picture then last time. And his new noble brow! Wow! Although it is puffy and will get even more so, the results are amazing. So happy. So relieved. More later, so stay tuned. And thank you for all your prayers today. They work!


  1. Glory Be to God for all things! Ok... you can give the Docs a pat on the back too!

  2. So happy to hear the surgery went well. We will continue to keep Leo in our prayers.

  3. So happy all went well...what a lion...:-) Be well all and get some much needed rest tonite. Prayers will continue. Wish we could be there...

  4. YAY LEO!!! He is a rock star! Of course, his Biggest Fan has got him in the palm of His hand, but wow! So glad to hear he is well. Can't wait to see the new Leo (how can he get any cuter??) Keeping you all in prayer.

Lost In Summer

It has been a long time...maybe the longest since I have written to you all last.

Not so little anymore, in a couple weeks he will be seven years old.  And so will this blog!  It is amazing to think back to the frightening beginning of it all, and to realize that never in a hundred years could I have pictured myself now, sitting and typing this post at my sunny kitchen table, in my own house, while the early morning sounds trickle in from the open porch door and mingle with the voices of my children in the other room. Not one child, as we all thought seven years ago, but two.  Seven years ago, Leo was not going to live to his first birthday. He was not going to be able to talk sweetly to his big sister, as I hear him doing right now. Though I'm sitting in the other room, I can picture them both clearly; his s…

For The NICU

So you guys know that September is the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) awareness month right?  Yeah, I didn't know either.  Every month there is some disease or disorder that we should worry, promote, and be aware after awhile all that awareness stuff gets tiring... But this is the first time I've heard of an awareness month for a place, rather than a physical condition. What's up with that? How come we need an awareness month for a section of the hospital? We have an awareness month for breast cancer, not the cancer ward why the NICU? I'm pretty sure there is a preemie dedicated month, and one for every other condition that may have put the infant in the NICU in the first place, so why the preferential treatment? After thinking about it for awhile, the only reason I could come up with for the need of this awareness of a place, is that the place itself has inherent issues that people (especially potential NICU parents) should be aware of. No…
