The patient is home and napping:)

Isaac not only did great before, during and after surgery today–but he was also a hit at the hospital. Hopefully, this will put an end to his repeat UTIs—and he will just be all smiles…not that he isn’t all smiles anyway. Here is our big man before going back…(daddy is spotting him here just before he and Frankie baby scooted away…)

One of the nurses looked at me and said, “I just want to put him on a piece of bread and gobble him right up!” Well, that’s not one I’ve heard before–but I’ll agree with her. He is just scrumptious! After surgery, I met Richard to exchange baby Frank who he was keeping at his office for me (I’m sure he got a lot of work done this morning with Frankie-baby’s help!). Frank got in the car, looked at Isaac and started whimpering like HE was hurt. He put one hand over toward Isaac and teared up. I assured Frank that his Isaac was okay and not to worry one bit. That kid is so funny because next I said, “Oh Frankie, don’t cry—can momma get Frankie baby something?” He gave me his serious look and shook his head and said, “DOUGH NAUGH!” The little rascal! Trying to take advantage of baby brother’s recovery by asking for a doughnut. Well, it worked. We had doughnuts on the way home…and then nap-time. Which this momma very much needed!

Thank you guys for praying for our little man! Now…off to address our Christmas cards—is it just me or is anyone else with lots of little ones having the hardest time making time to sit down and do that?! I’m so thankful to send this year’s card out—it just feels so complete this year!!! Love to you all and hope you all have a wonderful day. Stay warm!!!

What a great big brother Isaac has in Frank. A blessing they are so close in age and will have this bond that no one else will have with either one – seems like it will be that way. =) Happy nap time. Thankful for a good surgery.

So happy to hear he did so well! I was praying for him in the wee hours of the morning when I was up with a sick one. Hope you got to enjoy some quiet, down time.

So happy to hear that all went well! Don’t worry, Jeff and I don’t have children (yet!) and we are struggling to get our Christmas cards done too! Ha! Here’s to no more UTIs!
