Micah's surgery

Micah had his surgery today! It went super well! It was just for his little man part... fixed a few things:) He couldn't eat four hours before and that was actually what I was most worried for... he doesn't understand why mommy isn't feeding him! BUT the night before he ate an entire jar of chicken and sweet potato (that was a first) and ate alot through the night (only time I was ever glad for this!) so i think it all tied him over and he only fussed for 5minutes before he went in! The doctors and nurses were amazing and thanks to my friend Ashley who babysat Jake...she ended up having five kids under four! yikes!
When he came out of surgery and woke up he was screaming histerically!! I could hear him all the way down the hall! He was shaking and redder than a tomato, but as soon as I fed him he was good... he's doped up and sleeping now!
Thanks so much for praying, I felt a tremendous peace the entire time! I held onto this verse:

"Hear my cry, O God;
Attend to my prayer.
From the end of the earth I will cry to You,
When my heart is overwhelmed;
Lead me to the rock that is higher than I." psalm 61:1-2

Oh my goodness that is a cute baby boy. So thankful his surgery went well and you felt God's unexplainable peace. I found your blog through Bonnie Culp's as she is a friend of my daughter's. I pray for both of you girls as you deal with this unimaginable crisis in your lives. God is faithful and will see you through.

I'm so glad to hear that everything went well and that it is all behind you how. My little boy had some surgery on his little man part too. So sad, but happy the doctors can fix things.

The pictures of little Micah are so cute. Love his big beautiful eyes.
