Surgery is coming...soon


cutest face ever!
love edjy's face

big bro needs to be center of attention

new haircut
This will be quick. In one week we visited the urgent care, er, and two visits to our pediatrician. Edward got a CAT scan at the er and he probably caught the flu there. In that same week it was my husbands 30th birthday! It was a very stressful week. The good news out of all that was that Edward now weighs 10.6 lbs! I can't tell you how relieved I was that he has gained weight!
As surgery creeps closer, I am starting to get really nervous about it. Aaahhhh!! This is a big surgery and he will be under for probably five hours. That in itself is scary and the fact that we are removing a bone from his foot is very unsettling. I have done my homework on this surgery and I feel confident in our doctors ability. There is no right or wrong decision so I have to pray that this will have a good outcome for Edward. Ahhhh! I hate this feeling! I have had a lot of outside opinions and that is very hard to deal with. I just have to put my trust in the Lord that He will work it out! Ahhh! Please pray for Edward! I have been house bound for the past two weeks and we are going a little crazy. A lot crazy really. April 3rd is the day.
hand braces
omg the sweetest
poor babes spine
Could you guys also pray for his spine. That is one thing that is one thing that really weighs heavy on me. It can affect his organs and in turn his life span. I pray everyday that the Lord will stop the progression and straighten it out. His curve is large enough for surgery right now. After he heals from his feet, we will start bracing his spine asap, well pending hip status.
