(Worth the) Waiting rooms.

We just got done at Benjamin’s followup appointment, and are excited by a good report! We thought things were going well, but as always it is good when the professionals agree with my amateur diagnosis. The best point in the appointment (well second best to the moment the doc showed up after making us wait for an hour and a half) was when she said we can let Benjamin sleep on his back, as long as he is wearing his helmet. That is spectacular news, meaning we can reimplement the swaddle and hope that he sleeps for a few more hours at a time! Our next appointment is November 11th! We’ll keep you posted as things progress. Thank Jesus the next time you talk to Him for a resilient little boy. We have already thanked Him for all of you and your love and prayers through all of this!

A year ago.

One year ago yesterday we handed our 4-month-old to an anesthesiologist and said a prayer.

One year ago yesterday we had more individual viewers on our blog in a single day (by over 300) than any other day before or since.

One year ago yesterday we experienced something that, even today, we don’t like to look at the pictures of.

But God is so good.  Though we deserve none of it, he brought our son through surgery to repair craniosynostosis and now, a year later, he’s doing extremely well.  We are so thankful for how God works.  He doesn’t treat us as our sins deserve.
