Landon's turn - UPDATE

Landon pulled through just fine - he's our little trooper! Been through so much! Apparently this surgery is a quick and somewhat routine by the sounds of it. It doesn't take the doctors very long to do it, or decide to do it. After we were checking on him and the nurse opened the side of the isolette and let me hold him with both my hands. I just love to touch them and it's so special because we can't do it very often. Saturday we got to kiss Brooklyn & Brennan - that was great too! We were grinning from ear to ear on our way out! :) Thanks for all your prayers and encouragement. I really get encouraged reading your emails, comments and cards. Each one of you are so important and helping us get through this tough time. Praises for these miracles!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Just a quick update - Landon is having the same surgery as Brennan did on Friday. He threw up buile a little bit ago and the docs acted really quickly. They are doing the surgery in the NICU in a couple minutes. Brooklyn has a yeast infection as well as her bacteria infection in her blood. They determined it's not pneumonia, but a blood infection. Please pray for us too, personally I'm feeling really overwhelmed and ready for a quiet day. Lord, go before my baby! He is still recovering from his last surgery, but our faith is in You.

It just breaks my heart to know what you all are going thru, yet I can hear in your words that The Lord is with you. What a testimony your family is to His Words.
Thank you for being able/willing to share. I know I'm not the only one being brought closer to my Faith with each word.
God Bless!

Oh the Lord is good. I am praying for you to get some rest and for things to settle down a little bit so the babies can grow. Thinking of you every second and sending best wishes.

Go Landon!!!! He's pretty awesome!
So are you - you are amazing the world! You're strength is speaking to people - but you deserve to take a break!

I totally just realized that Hailey is exactly 3 years and 3 months older than the babies!

I haven't checked your blog in a few days but now I do I am so surprised at all the changes those little babies can go through from day to day. I am sorry you're feeling overwhelmed, hopefully, Landon's surgery success is making things easier. You're in my prayers!
