A Prayer for Mary Elizabeth

Dear friends and family:

Sorry it has been so long.  You know how it goes with kids busy schedules and new borns.  And on top of that starting a new business…. We have fallen way behind and we are sorry.  

The girls are doing really good.  They both could stand to gain a few pounds, but all things considered, we are happy with their progress.  

Please be thinking of Elizabeth this Thursday as she will have the surgery to repair her left nare.  Elizabeth was born with Choanal Atresia which is a defect where the back of the nasal passage is blocked by tissue.  It is something that developed very early and was diagnosed once we got back to KC.  They usually wait until the child is older to perform this surgery.  Since Elizabeth already has breathing issues which impact her ability to eat and grow, they think it is necessary to do it now.  We are hoping this will help get her off oxygen and on to regular feedings.  We are quite sure the surgery will be a success.  There is always anxiety involved when you put an infant under.  She will also need to go back on the breathing machine and stay overnight.

We continue to be blessed by you all.  We really appreciate EVERYTHING!  Meals, time holding babies, car pool rides, etc.  Most of all your prayers.

God Bless!

We hope that the operation is a success and that she will be able to get off the oxygen like her sister. We will also pray for you and Bo. It breaks your heart watching your sweet angel being put under. May God watch over you all on Thursday!
