Surgery update

Just thought I would update a little on what is going on with Abbey. We are scheduled to go into Primary Childrens Hospital tomorrow where they while remove our little nemisis the dreaded "TOKEN". We have not heard what time but we should know by 4:00 today. Just asking you all to keep us in your thoughts and prayers for all to go well! They are going to have to make 2 small incisions in her stomach to be able to remove the token. It is a bigger deal than we had hoped for so we are asking for Abbey to feel brave and safe. She seems to be doing okay but she was listening very intently when the surgeon explained the procedure and is now trying to process that as well as a three year old mind can. Mostly it is the "they are cutting me open" part that she is having the hardest time with. We walked into the post office yesterday and I think it was just a new and different place and she looked up at me and said "are they cutting me open now?" So she is trying to prepare herself the best she can. It is hard on the momma too just knowing there is no good way to prepare her for this. Thank you all for loving and supporting us and we just ask for your support as we go through this next chapter. Hopefully if all goes well we will get to bring her home Thursday..... here's keeping our fingers crossed for that!

Little update.............

Things are going pretty good around here. We are having a wonderful fall full of warm fun days. Jon is trying to keep busy at work and finishing up his semester at school. The kids got their report cards last week and they were very good! Shaina is pulling straight A's which she works very hard for and we are really proud. Isaiah is doing really well exceling in Math and learning to read more and more. He is even starting to engross his self like someone else we know (Shaina) and sit and read until I have to tell him to go play outside for awhile. Although if given the chance I am sure he would sit in front of the TV the rest of his life and become a zombie!!!! I enjoy them so much and realize I could never tend to all of them without some good help from friends and my Shaina girl she is such a blessing to me!
Abbey update is the token is still there they think it is not passing and after another x-ray looks like we are off to the Children's Hospital for a surgery consult on Tuesday we will keep everyone updated on what we find out. Just keep her in your prayers. And if you know of anyone that could spare a guardian angel this one may just be wearing hers out!!!!
I am just keeping busy and trying to start doing my photography a little more on the side I have student loans I have to pay back someday!!!! If you want to check out more of my work I have another blog dedicated to that hobby!

We love you all and hope all is well with everyone!

Keeping in the Halloween spirit!

Just thought I'd share a spooky skeleton........................

well actually it our little Abs...and actually its a golf token for a bucket of balls and if Jon tries to get his bucket from this one we will know he has a "golf problem" Anyways Abbey so heroically picked this up off the floor so her little brother would not get it. Unfortunately before she could put it up out of the way the little voices in her head told her......."quick put it in your mouth!!!!!!" So now we are waiting it out to see if this will pass on its own. Yes this is one of the adventures of motherhood not soon to be forgotten! Hopefully it will be nothing more than a funny story to tell her children...... It does look a little like the bottom of a cello. The kids find this a little too funny!

Halloween fun!

Here are our little ones for Halloween..... Isaiah was a super spiderman...

The whole gang.....

And here is our little mouse.....
