We're all still here



















Update: Last night went fairly well. He's eating a bit better, too. Mim must have bossed Grandma's socks off this weekend, because we came back to a "Queen of the Castle." I hope that wears off as soon as Zaya's pain does.

Zaya's surgery went well yesterday. It was quick, if not painless. He's fine as long as he's on his pain medicine, but I can definitely tell when it starts to wear off. Most of yesterday, and all this morning, he played video games with Daddy. We figured it kept him happy and still, so it was worth it. He's eating a bit, and drinking a bit. Not as much as we'd like, but enough, probably. He slept fairly well, even if Mommy didn't. I think the stress and the early mornings caught up with me. I'm better now, though. Mim was great with Grandma, too. She slept well, and wasn't even very fussy. Yeah!! Thank you God!

Also thanks to all of you who were praying for us. Your kind words and encouragements have meant so much to us.

The picture is from last night. Zaya was hurting, but it wasn't time for his medicine yet, so my uncle started playing his cello for Zaya, and it just calmed him right down. He played one of Vivaldi's Four Seasons, which is a favorite of Zaya's. It was a nice, peaceful moment, and allowed the rest of us to eat while Daddy held a napping toddler.

Hey Sweetie.

I'm so glad he made it through okay. That *is* so tough...to know something is going to hurt your baby and they can't understand it!

My 4 year old has to have this surgery at the end of this month. I'm not excited about it...(sigh) but he has breathing troubles and snores and has chronic sinus infections and trouble speaking...so, I am hoping that this will help things.

Praying that your little man finds great improvement for his troubles, too.

He is SO cute! :)

and YOU made it!

Hello, Babystepper! Surgery is bad enough for us big folk, let alone for a little one. Poor baby! Glad to know all went well and that your uncle's cello music calmed the little one for a bit.

It's so beautiful to see your uncle playing the cello for Zaya.

My prayer for your little Zaya.

*hugs*
