Justus

Just a quick update. (I am better about posting updates via Facebook - just easier and quicker)
Justus is scheduled for open heart surgery September 17th at Seattle Children's Hospital. He has a full day of pre-ops the day prior. Very mixed feelings here. Hopeful and excited to have this behind us and no longer over our heads - BUT .... this is my sweet little baby facing such a BIG surgery and that makes me weep. Being very honest here. Then my Lord reminds me through scripture (esp. Psalms) that Justus is in His hands. That is a comfort. I love my son - fervently. I am so thankful for his little life being entrusted to Phillip and I, as I am all of my children.
Updates may be spotty - but I will try. Thank you in advance for your prayer - and support.

I just have to say that Justus is such a sweetie, even though he is sleeping every time I see him!! What a good baby! = ) His sweet little face and cute little grins are just one more reminder of God's love.

I will be praying for Justus and for you and Phillip. Even as we know we ultimately must lean on Jesus it is in our human nature to worry a little - I hope you find comfort in knowing you have friends praying for you.

We will be praying for your family. I understand how very scary this experience is for you. We feel such a huge responsibility to protect our children. May God give you his peace and guide the surgeons' hands as they take care of your little baby.
