Oma Gushing and updates and such....

Here is our little man... It has been a long time since I've gotten to put an update on here.  I apologize  for the delay--- I know a lot of you are out there praying for our family and checking for updates.  Thank you all so much. 

Easton came home on the 30th of July and has been doing pretty well. 
He had a 3 -1/2 day stay at in the hospital last week his blood count was high-- it turned out to be a urinary tract infection.  Other wise he is doing pretty well. He did have some weight loss during that period of time-- we hope that it does NOT delay his last and final surgery. 

He's had two surgeries so far.  The first was a LOOP - Ostomy 
The second-- was Bishop-Koop  

We see the surgeon today (August 19)  and hope to set a date for the final surgery to close him up and give him a belly button.

My daughter and son in-law are doing well with both boys at home despite weekly trips to the DR. for some reason or another. Big Brother is especially happy these days -- not being apart from Mom and Dad so much-- and finally understanding what the fuss was about... (not really) but now he really does KNOW that he has a brother (as much as a 2 1/2  year old can understand)

I hope to let you all know really soon about his final surgery and that he is recovering well.
Again thanks for the prayers. 

On to other news!!!! 
Our littlest girl Emily is finally here.

This is her going home from the hospital picture -- 2 days old.
Isn't she a cutie?  So serious and alert!

I had told you before that the Dr. had put Momma on bed rest
to prolong the pregnancy as much as possible. 
She made it to 38 weeks!  Yay! 
Emily weighed a whopping  7 lbs. and 4 oz.
and was 20 inches long... and she has a head full of dark hair. 
(Hard to tell with that chocolate colored head rest.)  

And she was born on the 10th--- exactly 2 months after her cousin Easton. 

Just want to remind you to read the Word of God-- 

Blessed are they that keep thy testimonies; and that seek Him with the whole heart.
Psalm 119:2 

Thank you for letting this Oma  gush a little over her newest grandkids!

God Bless you 
Thanks for reading!

You have such gorgeous grandbabies. I'm glad Easton is doing well. I'm continuing to keep that little one in my prayers. Thanks for the update.

Wonderful! Rejoicing with you here. Such beautiful babes, and now onto the road of recovery for little Easton. I'll bet he bounces back from the final one because he'll be bigger and stronger than before. God Bless their little hearts! And... I can hardly wait to see the pink baby shower decorations you're sure to come up with : )

I am so happy to hear of Emily's birth (I bow down to her mom - what she did was not easy). And of course, Easton's progress and homecoming to be with his big brother. Soon they will be paling around together collecting rocks. Happy days are ahead for you, proud grandma!
