NO SURGERY (for now anyways). We had our consultation with the surgeon today and he was unable to find the hernia. Which means that the hole is still there, but the piece of intestine that was slipping through it went back where it's suppose to be. So that means NO SURGERY. Hooray! Joshua is very relieved.

So to celebrate we got drinks and a cookie at Starbucks...yummy!
Isn't he cute with his tumbler he got from Auntie Trish for his birthday?
And here's a pic of Eli on the way to church on Sunday. Nice hat, huh?

Lastly, I want to thank all of you who have prayed for Joshua over the week. We really felt your prayers comforting us. We thank you so much!

Just An Update

Everyone has been asking how Joshua is doing, so I thought I'd add a little post on here. Joshua is doing good. He says he's not in pain anymore, but I think he's lying to get out of surgery. He is very scared and nervous about meeting with the surgeon and the whole idea of "being cut open". Thanks for all your prayers and I'll let you know whats new after the consultation with the surgeon tomorrow.

Just got a call back from Dr Caesar's office and they can get him in Thursday at 11 am. Yay!

Thankful but frustrated

we won't be seeing a surgeon today. i am very thankful they called me this morning to tell me that they do not take our insurance, so any visits with them would be paid out of our pockets. i called around and got the name of who would be covered. got two doctors names, both at peace health medical where primary doctors are, but they can't get Joshua in until February 3rd. I took that appt, but they will call if anything opens up sooner. I'll keep you all posted.

We meet with the surgeon tomorrow (Jan 27) at 1:30pm to schedule surgery and discuss what will be happening. His surgeon's name is Dr. Pietro :o)

Night at the ER

Here's our little trooper Joshua at the ER last night. I'm tired so I'm not going into all the details, but he was rolling on the floor last night complaining of pain and after a nice long trip to the ER we have learned that he has a Ingenial (sp?) Hernia or hernia of the groin, to be specific. So our Little Man is going to need surgery! AHH! Should make for a good homeschool biology lesson. LOL I'll keep everyone posted on the details as they come. Oh and please excuse my foot in this pic I was holding Elizabeth.

My Next Project

So here is my next project I am attempting to make. I want to make Elizabeth the shopping cart cover and the highchair cover w/ bib, bag and that cute litte carrot. I haven't sewn that many things, so wish me luck. Maybe if this doesn't turn out to be too difficult I could make some for other people, too. Anyone need a cart/highchair cover?
