Here We Go.....

It's finally here- tomorrow we check in at UAB for Frances' surgery, which is scheduled for Wednesday morning.  For so long, this date seemed so far away and now we are ready to roll.  Last night we had an extra special Frances celebration at family dinner.

A cake for me????????

I don't really even know how to put in words the way I feel right now.  For one, I'm terrified....add in anxious, worried, etc, etc...But, at the same time, I'm excited for Frances because this surgery is going to make such a huge difference in her life.  It will allow her to breathe easier and grow!  We are thankful to live in a city with an incredible medical community; I have no doubt that she is in the best hands.  
Hanging with the cousins- I LOVE this picture!
Please say extra prayers over the next week for Frances and our family, and of course all the doctors and nurses who will be taking care of her.  God is in the driver's seat now, and yes I'm guilty of being a backseat driver, but I'm really trying to sit back and let Him drive.
Psalm 139:14 I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made

Oh yeah, one more thing.....
We have known we were going to be moving in the next year or so, but this happened suddenly last week.  Yep, it might be a little crazy to take this on right now, but apparently God thinks I'm good at being crazy because we are following His lead on this one.

All of your prayers, love, encouragement, and support means the world to us.  We will continue to update this week whenever we are able to!


  1. Sending many many prayers your way! Good luck baby Frances!

  2. Francis is THE MOST PRECIOUS BABY and God will take of her and all of you!!!! The story of all this makes me cry (happy tears) every time I read all this and all of you are in my thoughts and prayers. Sage and the triplets also brought happy tears and prayers for all of them. Ya'll are a very strong, Christian family and everything will be alright!!!! Love to all of you and many prayers coming from California!!

  3. I will be praying for y'all, Anna Ruth!

  4. Will,
    You all will be in my prayers. I think you have a lot of prayers coming also from your reunion group! Keep us posted and let us know if you all need anything.
    May you know God's peace with you during this time.

  5. "May the Lord bless you and keep you.
    May the Lord show you his kindness
    and have mercy on you.
    May the Lord watch over you
    and give you peace." '

    Had to share this favorite verse of mine for this day!!!
