Home from surgery

We made it home today around 6:30 and it feels sooo good to have the surgery behind us. What a relief to know that all is well ,this minute, and Jameson is doing great. He is eating, pooping, and sleeping, all those things we take for granted, he is doing. I was very surprised to see the incisions. They are both about 1 1/2 inches long. Dr. Miller said the hernias were pretty large and that everything looks great!!

I never imagined I could be so tired from sitting and just holding a baby. Our whole family is exhausted. Well...Nicholas and Zachary aren't tired ...just me and Todd and his mom. The boys are doing really good. Thank you for praying for them.

When I look back, all of 2 days ago, and see how everything has unfolded, I am amazed. We were doing dressing changes a while ago(a month) and some nurses and wound care were there. I made the statement that Jameson looked so good and I could not say it enough. I kept on saying he looks sooooo good ..... One of the nurses said to me I thought you were praying and asking God to take away the blisters and help him to get better. I said yes that is what I am praying, and she said," then why are you so surprised". I was embarrassed and also convicted. I should not be so surprised when God answers my prayers. God has done great and mighty things in our family for the last 6 weeks. We are amazed and thankful for ALL that He has done. So, don't be surprised when God answers your prayers. He is able to do immeasurably more than we can ask or imagine. Just look at what He has done and continues to do in our life.

Love, Melisa
