Great day with Wesley and friends

What a great day to spend with our boy. As soon as we got to his bedside this morning our nurse asked Lucy if she wanted to hold Wesley. So for the next 30 minutes he spent some great time in his mothers arms. Around Lunch time we had a great visit from Bill and Joann Goans and Kate Black. It was a great time to show off the man, the myth, the legend with some great friends from back home. We had a sweet time of prayer and laughter. Wesley also had his third round of neoprofen this afternoon which is a good sign that he has been able to handle the medicine.

Big prayer request:
Please pray for the echo cardiogram that Wesley will have tomorrow to follow up from his 72 hours worth of the medicine. We will be able to see from the echo how his PDA is progressing. Our big hope is that it will be closed and we will not have to deal with this for a while. If it is not closed they will consider another round of treatment with the medicine. If that will not work they will think about having the surgery. Please pray that we will not have to go down this road. We will keep you posted. Thanks again for all your thoughts and concerns. We are so encouraged by your comments and concerns.


  1. Glad you had some company today and that Lucy got to hold Wesley. I will be praying for good test results on Friday. My thoughts and prayers continue to be with you all. Love & blessings, Melinda Smith.

  2. I'm so glad for your surprise of getting to hold Wesley for so long yesterday! That is so awesome! There is nothing like holding a precious child in your arms. God is so good! I'll be praying for good results today on the echo.
    Love & prayers, Beth Dunkum

  3. We are praying and thinking of you and the long, healthy, happy life that the Lord has in store for Wesley. "All glory, laud and honor, to the Redeemer King! To whom the lips of children made sweet hosanas ring." Believing and praising... Heather and Eric Bland
