Pictures Galore

There's been a lot of text on my blog lately, so I thought I'd give y'all a break and post a bunch of pictures today.  Enjoy...

We are in the surgery waiting room, it's almost time for his endoscopy...
He was just chillin', listening to his MP3 player.
There he goes, off to the OR.  The anesthesiologists are taking him away....
Then I had a good cry on Lon's shoulder.  He called me his "emotional rock".  LOL!

Some pictures of the beautiful orca whale hanging in the Melinda French Gates outpatient clinics section of Seattle Children's Hospital.

The big giraffe statue by the elevators in the giraffe wing where Eli stayed.
The hospital is decorated so well.  There are different sections to help you find your way around.  (Giraffe, Balloon, Train, Rocket, Whale, etc)
Then each floor of the wing is decorated.  Floor 2 is a beach theme.

Eli hanging out at home yesterday afternoon.  He layed like this for a couple hours...even when awake.
He slept for almost 13 hours last night!  :)
Here he is this morning...getting ready for breakfast.
He took a nice nap in my lap while he ate...and then woke up and started spitting up.
He sounds better as far as his airflow, today, but he's not tolerating his food, and the spit up makes him really cruddy and congested.  It's going to take time to build him back up to his normal feeds.....as usual!

And finally I leave you with a closeup of Eli's medical records file folder at Seattle Children's Hospital.
It's over 2 inches thick...

Is Eli tall? He looks tall for a 3 year old. He sure is a cutie. I have prayed for him and will continue to do so.

I'm so glad I found your blog through Shi and I feel honored to be able to pray for all of you.

Love,
Lynnette
PS And I absolutely love what you say in your header - even when life is full of challenges, we can still be immensely joyful! Eli is a blessing. :)
