'With God, All Things Are Possible'!

Hello everyone!  I have been a little busy getting “poked” so I haven’t had a chance to write to you for updates, but here goes:  Surgery……CHECK!  Back closed up and healing….CHECK!  Swelling in head……….CHECK!!  I had my surgery this past Wednesday morning and they went in and closed up the defect in my back.  I have a scar about 6 – 8 inches long, but it’s nothing that Hollywood can’t cover up.  They also put a ventricular access device in my head to draw fluid out daily.  They will continue to draw the fluid out daily until the early part of next week.  If it reduces the swelling on the brain, then I’m going home!  If the swelling gets worse, then they have to go in and put a permanent shunt to drain the fluid into my belly.  I know everything will be fine.  I’m strong!  I am eating full bottles every 3 hours and they took me off of IVs.  I have maintained the same weight since my delivery.  I am now in a regular crib and I can lay on my back (Thank God!).  I’m getting some good sleep, so I’m stronger any day.  Enjoy the long awaited pics!

We continue to have all of you in our prayers and we are certain that each day Oliver will only get healthier and stronger, as God never abandons us.
