Synagis shot & Surgery scheduled

Yesterday, we took Josiah to the pediatrician for his first Synagis shot.  He tolerated the shot well & had no adverse affects. 

This morning, we received the anticipated call from Children's.  Josiah will undergo open heart surgery next Wednesday, Jan 25th.  Pre-op is scheduled for Tues.

Despite being anxious about the surgery, we are so pleased that the wait has lessened.  5 days....the countdown begins.

We've arranged for the boys to go to my parents house for the better part of next week.  We are so thankful to them for all of their support.  We are also thankful to the boys aunts/uncles who are always a constant support.  And, as always, we're thankful for friends who are always willing to lend a listening ear, or words of encouragement.  It truly does take a village.....


  1. Nothing communicates love or the worth of this boy than risking the shattering of your own heart to stop his...fix his...and provide him the long, healthy, productive life that he will mesmerize those around him with.

    Pudge and Biggs will be rooting for him and we'll be praying for your heart during those emotional days ahead. xoxoxo
