These two hearts represent Mama's & Daddy's hearts.
Since we cannot go into the operating room with Connor
we send our "hearts" underneath his little matress so he
knows we are there.
Mama and Grandma share today as their birthday.
Here they are blowing out their candles and wishing
for the same thing.......Connor's healing!!

As you can see by all these wonderful pictures, today was a full day for all of us. First of all Connor did very well in his surgery. The surgeons were quite pleased that when they went in to do the laser procedure, they decided that just a couple snips of his epiglodus (sp??) would do just fine so that lasers were not neccessary!! He came back to the ICU within an hour and a half and he was wide awake. They will keep the c-pap machine on him for at least 24 hours so that the swelling will go down in his throat and then over the next few days we should see a dramatic improvement in Connor's breathing. Praise the Lord for answered prayer!!
Today was also my birthday, along with Grandma Ruberta. Daddy did a great job at preparing Connor's room for my arrival this morning. There were birthday banners, birthday hats, presents, cards, and even a cinnamon roll with a candle in it for cake!!! Wow honey, you guys made me feel so special. Thanks for going the extra mile to find a card from Connor with little bugs on it and even little bugs on my birthday sack that was filled with Starbursts (my favorite!!)!! I'm looking forward to our night out tomorrow night!!!
My mom, Grandma RaeAnn, along with the help of Auntie Marsha coordinated a fun little luncheon and tea party for us. What fun to be together. Thank you everyone for preparing a superb celebration. Hey, whoever says you can't party at the hospital isn't part of our family!!! Everyone had a hand in helping prepare food and yummies...Thanks so much, Mom RaeAnn, Mom Ruberta, Marsha, Kathy, Maureen, Teresa, Lynette, Heather, and Aunt Sandy. Thanks also to all my special friends who sent comments, emails and phone calls today. I feel your love wrapped around me even when your arms are not present at the moment. Thanks from the bottom of my heart.
Connor is sleeping peacefully at the moment. He just got done with an X-ray to see how his tummy is tolerating the extra air from the c-pap. We'll have results later on tonight, but they expect everything to look really good. We continue to pray for increased strength and healing for our little bug and we also pray that Connor's breathing will be better in no time. We look forward to giving a good report on that really soon!!
Goodnight & Loveug Hugs,
