TUESDAY IS THE BIG DAY! Ah!!!
So please pray for us ALL! We need peace, strength, healing, comfort, encouragement...the whole package! Anything you can think of!
Also pray for the surgeon, Dr. Mulliken, and his staff.
We leave Sunday morning for Boston...Monday is pre-op, Surgery Tuesday, 2 nights stay in the hospital, stitches get taken out the following Monday, Check up on Tuesday or Wednesday and then we come home. That's a lot of Boston! lol
I am not sure if I will have access to internet but I will sure try to get you an update as soon as I can.
We love and appreciate all of you.

The music was beautiful (thanks Jennifer!)..the sermon was beautiful (thanks Brother Castleberry!) and Judah was so handsome! I was so glad to see so many people I love there! I wish I would have taken more pictures but Judah was burning up in his outfit... It's not easy being that cute!
My BEST Friend! I am so blessed to have you Datha!

- He is consistently eating better! So I have been able to take him out and go to church more than just Sunday mornings!
- He has a grey hair on the back of his head...hmmm
- He started squealing ALL THE TIME I guess from the excitement of making a new noise..I have been trying to encourage him to use his voice again so I don't have a head ache everyday!
- He is exploring new functions he can do with his body... a few examples: grab mom's hair, grab mom's glasses...
- He smiles all the time, and saves his biggest smiles for Dad :)
- He is getting so chunky!

So things are going well, Judah ate 26 ounces yesterday! He has also cut back to 5 feedings a day...YAY!
He squeals now! When I blow on his belly or kiss his cheek. Too cute..I have been trying to get it on video!
We took the stents off the NAM using....a flash light, nail file, needle nose pliers, soldering iron,pocket knife...those things weren't coming off easy!
I also added some amazing music so turn on your speakers and enjoy! The first song "rescue" I sang it in my head over and over during my c-section..it was the only thing (other than my husband and the epidural) that kept me from running out of there!

God is answering prayer!! CCA kids is taking care of ALL 8 NIGHTS for our hotel in Boston! I know that He is our provider and always takes care of us but it is so humbling each time He blesses. I can't help but think "What is man that thou art mindful of him?" (Psalm 8:4) Really, I am just one person in a HUGE world FULL of hurting people. I am sure there are way more important prayers out there but God takes the time to show me His love and mercy..I really don't deserve it but am so grateful. Thank you Jesus.

I tried eating dairy again...it was so nice!! But Judah's rash came back and he started getting extremely fussy again so it's confirmed..he is allergic to dairy and egg. I had to throw out 2 days worth of milk!
We have a NAM appointment tomorrow. Dr. Chavarria will be in! She is the one that broke her arm and has been out for weeks.
Other than that we have just been busy getting the Boston trip together.

He weighs 13 lbs! I am so proud! The pediatrician said he is eating well and looks "beautiful" Judah tested positive for egg allergy. I am still going to continue to cut dairy out and gradually introduce it back to make sure he is ok.
I know..I am slacking. I don't have any pictures to post, but today has been totally insane. I did post some last night! So scroll down and enjoy! :)
