Heart Surgery #2=Success

Seems this past 12 days has been one that has been a total whirlwind for us. First just getting through all the prep and work for graduation party, which we did with great success!!  Then after the party we had one day to clean up, pack and hit the road to be heading down the road on a long trip to get my son the best care for yet another heart surgery.  We knew this time we were taking him to a better place, one of the very best. The day leading up to was a little nerve racking. Always hearing risks with any surgery can freak a person out a little, But we just had to give it to God and trust in his safety and careful watch over our son. The first time he had catheter ablation it was 7 hours in the O.R. Now that puts a mom on the edge of her seat.  But then to hear it did not go as the Dr hoped was a big disappointment.  This time at the Mayo in Rochester Mn. the Dr took a little over 2 hours and it was a huge SUCCESS!! They had Bailey asleep the entire time unlike here locally, they had him in and out for the process which was grooling especially when putting catheters through the neck and groin.  All around this time was an absolute better experience for him.  He woke up and it was all done, and done correctly!!  Today a week out Bailey is doing great. Feeling pretty good and I knew for him to hear good news afterwards that it would greatly impact how well and fast he would recover.  If in doubt with anything always always seek another doctors advice. We are so glad we did.

Thank you every one that took time out of your day to pray for our son. We are so thankful at how things turned out for him!!

Graduation Day

Unreal to me that my little boy has now graduated from High School. My heart is heavy and I feel like time has gone way to fast! At the same time my heart is heavy, I am overwhelmed with a feeling of pure happiness for him and I am incredibly proud. He has become such a great young man, and truly has a great head on his shoulders.  He loves the Lord with all his heart, and I just know he has a great future ahead of him. Bailey has received a full ride scholarship to collage.  We are so very excited for him and this great opportunity.   Thank you to all of you for traveling to join us in this special day. Here are a few fun photos from this special day.

 The proud moment when you walk down the row of people and class mates to grab that diploma, that piece of paper you work towards getting for so many years is now here. Now you cross over into adult hood.  Such a proud moment and such a great accomplishment!

 Buddies and Best friends forever !!
