Thank You

Our sweet little Caleb had some very unexpected surgery yesterday...but he's doing just fine.  Thank you so much for all the prayers lifted up for this dear little boy.  I think his mommy will be sharing the details on her blog at some point, so for now I'll just say he has three tiny holes in his abdomen and a stomach that is working the way God intended it to. 
We are so very blessed!
 
Here he is in the Emergency Room with his mommy. 
They're waiting to be admitted and for the surgery to be scheduled. Caleb is all hooked up to the IV. Sweet boy!

Here he is sleeping peacefully in his daddy's arms.  This was last night ~ Caleb was being kept lightly sedated until midnight...the scheduled time for his first bottle since early Wednesday morning. If the bottle feedings go well he'll be able to come home today! This gramma will be visiting him ASAP!

Updated at 2:15 PM:  Caleb is home!!

"And Jesus put forth His hand and touched him." 
Matthew 8:3

Thank you Lord, for watching over him.
