All Glory & Praise

Thank you, thank you for all the prayers surrounding Baylor and his surgery earlier this week! We were overwhelmed with the outpouring of support via text messages, phone calls, emails, etc. His almost instantaneous recovery has seemed nothing short of miraculous. All glory and praise to the Great Physician!

I can not say enough about our doctor, the nurses, and the staff at LeBonheur's surgery center. Wow - they impressed me! What a blessing to have a doctor who knelt down next to Baylor and prayed with him before surgery!! 

Baylor happily walked through the "bunny tunnel", picked out his toy, and proceeded back to surgery with his nurse - never looking back. And I was completely at peace (thanks to being covered in prayer). 

During surgery, we were updated on Baylor's progress by this pager. How cool & comforting is that? 

Here is my sweet boy just after his surgery and coming off his anesthesia. He requested a green popsicle, and that is exactly what he got :)

Killing time in recovery. Post green popsicle. Being silly and looking at his green tongue.

And, here he is about an 1.5 hours post surgery and back at home. Happy as can be! No fever and no complaints of pain. As I said earlier, ALL glory and praise to God for His quick healing of Baylor's little body!

Baylor -
Mommy is so proud of how brave you were today! God provided you with His protection and His healing like we (and so many others) had prayed. 

Before even leaving the surgery center, you were requesting the mango smoothie I had promised you. You never forget! And it wasn't more than 30 minutes after we got home that you and sissy already had your first fight of the day. I knew you were back to your normal self then :)

One day, I want you to look back on this day and recognize it as just one of the many times when God showed His provision in your life. Mommy loves you more than words can describe and wants the absolute best for you, but my love for you doesn't compare to how much God loves you! Never, ever forget that! 

I love you!
