He'll Be Home for Christmas!

Well, I've been crying buckets this evening as I praise God for His goodness in the progress we have seen in Devon,becuase i got the word today that

Devon is going home tomorrow!!

His surgery was such a success and he is up to full feeds in his little tummy and they are releasing him tomorrow morning at 9am. Ashley and Ron are of course exstatic and keep singing, "Tomorrow, Tomorrow!" from Annie and say they would leave right now if they could.

This has been a long road our little man has been on, and the journey continues. But the fact that,5 months and two days after he was born, Devon can finally go home with his Mommy and Daddy is such an exciting milestone that I don't know what else to say but Praise God and THANK YOU to our heavenly Father and all of you who prayed for Devon, Ashey, Ron, and all of our family. It was all I could do not to get in the car and drive down today, but I can't for various reasons and I know the Lord will work out just the right time for me to go down. He hasn't shown us anything but goodness so far, and I turst that will continue.

Ashley and Ron are heading home tomorrow in some pretty ugly weather, so we would appreciate prayers for safety. I can't believe my nephew will be home for Christmas; what an incredible blessing. I found this really cute slideshow and while it's a bit slow, it's neat to see the pictures this way, so i hope you enjoy the photos from our Thanksgiving Weekend.

Give Thanks to the Lord, for He is good! His love endures forever! -Psalm 118:1

I am so delighted that your sweet nephew will be coming home! Those pictures are great.

My almost 14 y/o son was a 2 pound preemie and it was so hard to have him in the hospital 3 hours away for 10 weeks. Having him home was just an over the top pleasure--I can't imagine your sister doing that for 5 months, plus all the medical difficulties, etc.

God is so good! Thank you for allowing us the glimpse into his life.

Thank you all, ladies, so much! They got home safely and happily. Now it's just hard not to get in the car and go see them.. but I know I need to be disciplined right now and stay home. But in the Lord's timing, I;ll get to see them.
