Truly

Crazy.

Brave.

Smart.

 Two boys. Two surgeries. 

Son #2 didn't want to wake up from his surgery.  He snored for hours. 


He refused all attempts to wake him up.  The sleeping prince.


When he finally came to, he was as chill as they come.  His surgery went well and he now has the potential to have a pincer grasp in his left hand.   His thumb is in a new place. 





Two little boys.



John's not having such a chill time.  We are trying to keep ahead of his pain and fever and anxiety. 


The next few days will be rough for him until his pain level goes down and he adjusts to the new norm of having two casted legs and one of them in a brand new bent position. 



We are hoping we can head home today. Aaron is definitely ready.  John isn't so sure it is a good idea!




I think once he gets home and realizes that he can still build Legos he will bounce back quickly!


Crazy.

Brave.

Smart.

 Two boys. Two surgeries. 

A long road trip home.

We are crazy. We may be a bit brave.  Smart.  I don't know about smart, but I am glad we did it this way.  We are on the recovering side of the surgeries. We dread the drive but we long for our little house in the woods. 

God is good.

Truly.

  2. What wonderful news for both boys. Getting home will be the best medicine of all. Love that Aaron still has his favorite bear beside him. Prayers for John to see quick improvement in his pain level and continued healing for all.

  3. Prayers for your precious sons. They are so beautiful. Really praying for good pain relief/control. Kids tend to be under treated, compared to adults. Hugs to you, Mama. - Jo
