Surgery Update!

First, a HUGE thank you to all of you that stopped by to leave a blog comment, kept me in your prayers, or sent a card or phone call. I appreciate each and every one of you!

Surgery was a success.

At least in terms of the actual procedure.

 While I am experiencing pain, it is completely manageable and I'm resting comfortably.

Chris was able to be home with me all day yesterday and is working half days this week to be home in the afternoons with me. Especially to help out with the little ones.

 My sweet carpool friend, Kim, rearranged her work schedule to pick up my kiddos every day this week and the entire Kindergarten and 2nd grade classes at St. Paul included me in their prayers.

God is good and answered all of you in the blessings he has showered upon me!

So, thank you again.

And now, if I could direct your prayers to another sweet blogger friend, Jamie Jo. Her precious baby boy, sweet Simeon, will be undergoing yet another cleft palate surgery, tomorrow. I know her heart is anxious for her little boy and she is asking for our prayers!  Please, visit Simeon and see his amazing blue eyes and beautiful face and let her know you will be storming the heavens with another surgery prayer request.




  1. So glad things went well and you are settled in at home surrounded by your littles, Valerie! Prayers and good wishes!
