Visiting New York and Staying Home

Kimmy, Lulu, Mark and baby Nathan
flew to New York for a Dr.'s consultation.
(click here for the reason for this trip)
They came back with all the answers to their questions and
scheduled a date for Lulu's surgery,
April 1st.

They arrived in NY,  Monday night.

The doors of the subway opened up and
this is what they saw.
The Empire State Building!
What a beautiful surprise!

Yes, Lulu you are NOT in little, old Nampa Idaho, anymore.

Back at home, we were busy, too!

We showed off new tricks..


Drew lots of pictures...

Were silly...


Did school work...


Played in the snow.

Then we got up real late at night
  (10:30 pm),
 to go to the airport.

We waited...

The fashion statement  for this night was,
PJ's and Coats.

Then the moment came!
After 4 days of being away,
they were back!

Hugs! Hugs and more hugs!

Next time will be longer.
But it will be over!
Praise God!


"It will be healing to your flesh and refreshment to your bones."
Proverbs 3:8

Prayers Please

In the next few months our family will be experiencing 
two, very, important surgeries.

Kimmy and Mark have 6 children.
Two of them will be having surgery, shortly.

Lulu is 11, soon to be 12 years old, will be having ASC,
which is a non fusion spine surgery to correct her scoliosis.
It is a new type of surgery, only been around for a couple of years.

Lulu's surgery is on April 1 and taking place in New Jersey.
Kimmy and Mark are flying back with Lulu
(and Nathan because he is still being breast feeding), for 10 days.
Tom and I will be staying in Idaho to take care of the other children.

Nathan and Lulu

Nathan ( 6 months) was born with a closed skull or Craniosynostoisis.
His specific type is called, Sagittal. 
He will be having surgery to open his scalp and repair his skull.  
Giving his brain room to grow, normally.

Nathan's surgery will be in Salt Lake City,
on June 14th.
Tom and I will be traveling to Salt Lake City,
with the family.

Prayer requests:

Lulu's surgery
is a complete success.
Recovery is quick and comfortable.
Kimmy and Mark will be comforted before, during and after surgery.
Traveling to and from, will be easy.
Tom and I will be able to care and comfort the other children to their needs,
They will come home safely.

Nathan's surgery is a complete success.
Recovery is quick, that he will sleep well and be comfortable.
Kimmy and Mark will be comforted before, during and after surgery.
And that God's hand will be on all of us before, during and after wards.
