Well Christy and Braelyn are spending the night together...She called and it was obvious she was having many emotions...all of which were coming from a really good place. She said it was as if Braelyn can sense something is about to happen because he was "cheesin" all day!! She said he was soooo happy today and they even sat and watched their very first episode of Sesame Street together...Awwwww my heart is melting...I am just so absolutely amazed at what a happy baby he is...LORD WILL FRIDAY EVER GET HERE!!


We are feeling soo excited...but deep down really scared..Christy is soo nervous. It's really happening, Braelyn will be coming home on oxygen. He does not need it so much for his lungs but does have some residual RVH (right ventricular hypertrophy) going on with his heart. This should take care of itself as he gets bigger and his lungs get even stronger!


Yep that's right...The doctors have planned a discharge date for Braelyn...THANK YOU GOD!!!! And I must say that God always has a master plan..It seems the perfect day for Braelyn to come home is: FRIDAY, MAY 9th, 2008...MOTHER'S DAY WEEKEND!!!!!!

Missy and I are definitely participating again next year and have been asked to be on the organizing committee :) to which we both have agreed to do!

Thanks to everyone and thanks for supporting the March of Dimes!

Braelyn's Surgery

It's 12:10 pm and Braelyn is in surgery.....It is going to take about an hour to an hour and a half...Christy is with him and being very brave..She's such a good Mommy...They have called to say that he did well being intubated and is now asleep...Lord watch over our miracle and keep him safe. In your glory I know all things are possible..I know my beautiful grandbaby is going to be just fine...I will continue to add to this post as things progress...This is going to be the longest hours of my life!!!!!

Saturday with Braelyn

Well Cayla, Papa, and I went to see Braelyn today and spend some quality time before surgery on Monday! When we got there Braelyn was in the tub taking a bath...He was sooo cute, he actually likes the water to be put over his face...

Braelyn weighed in today at 7 pounds 1 ounce and he is about 16 to 17 inches long. We didn't get an exact length on him..

He is sooooo cute...He really loves to be talked to and he absolutely loves his mobile...he stares at it and talks to it...His Papa finally got to hold him today for the first time....Believe me he was all grins.

Prayers for Braelyn!!

Well it has been a minute since I posted anything on Braelyn, but a few things have changed.. As you can tell by the ear to ear grin picture that we took of Braelyn, he is really a happy baby and LOVES to be talked to....He gets soooo excited and even considers himself talking back. He really likes attention!!!

Surgeries On!!

Well today was a little bit frustrating. Christy was told to bring Braelyn's carseat to the hospital, which in our observed opinion, means Braelyn IS getting ready to come home. She put the carseat in the car and before she could leave our city, she got a call saying the carseat would not be necessary...TEARS-FRUSTATION-GUTWRENCHING EMOTIONS...Christy called me to meet her, she was clearly upset and wanted me to come get the carseat..She did not want to take it with her if he wasn't going to be able to get in it. She didn't want it in her car. It's so hard ya'll.

They will, They Won't, They Will, They won't

Yep, now the doctors are saying that they ARE thinking about repairing Braelyn's bilateral hernias.........not sure what their thoughts are for this!!!! I may sound frustrated and in someways I maybe..I do know that they are taking really good care of Braelyn and Lord knows we appreciate everything Children's hospital is doing for Braelyn, but we sooo much are ready for him to come won't be long and he'll be SIX MONTHS!!!

Braelyn has found his voice!!!!!

Christy just called me today with an update on Braelyn.......First, our Miracle baby has reached the 6 pound mark. He weighed in last night at 6 pounds 2 1/2 ounces......YEAAAA GO BRAELYN!!!
