Thank you, ladies, for prayers for Devon. His surgery went very quickly today and was a success. They were not able to tighten the opening into the stomach as much as they had planned, as little devon's stomach is still so small from not being used, but they were still happy with the amount they were able to tighten the opening. he is recovering in the ICU but they were able to take his brething tube out and he's breathing fine on his own. The surgeon said she couldn't see why Devon wouldn't be able to be home for Christmas, and for a mom that's been living with her baby at a hospital since July, that was the best thing Ashley could have ever heard. Of course, there's no way to put a timeline on these things, but the Christmas miracle i am praying for this year is devon's quick recovery and that he can celebrate his first Christmas at home with his parents.
I won't be blogging more today becuase I am in the process of moving every single belonging from one place to another in my living room about five times each. We were gifted a lovely upright piano from Caleb's parents (they spoil us rotten) and in finding a place for it, I have had to move and remove everything a million times (including the stacks of books and dvds) to figure it out. Caleb finally finished nailing the shelves in place a few minutes ago, and i am stopping just long enough to finish this post and order a pizza, and then I'm right back in there to put my tornado-struck livingroom back in order. You know I'm in a hurry when I don't even take the time to post a picture. Yikes.
See you soon, though, with lots of fun stuff to blog about. I promise!
