Please pray Luke goes in for surgery this morning at 8 am

I can't remember the last time I posted 2 blog postings in one day, but I didn't want to include this prayer request for Luke in the announcement of the birth of our precious new grand baby Abigail. Luke will go in for surgery tomorrow morning at 8 am to have a Baclafen pump put into him. 

We are hoping that this pump will help to limber him up so that we can finally get his knees bending again, along with bringing much needed relief to the constant severe muscle spacity that he deals with on a daily basis. It's a pretty major surgery that will require him to be cut open in the front to place the pump in his abdomen area, then stringing the catheter from the pump around to the back and then cutting open his back so that they can insert the catheter into the correct spot in spinal cord. I'm very happy to say that the surgeon that Luke has tomorrow has put in over 300 pumps and is very experienced with what he will need to do. 

Please pray:
  • that Luke will make it through the surgery with no major problems,
  • for the surgeon to do exactly what needs to be done correctly, 
  • that his body will not reject the pump,
  • that there will be no infections.
  • that he will stay healthy and not have any respiratory issues,
  • that it will be a short hospital stay,
  • that I will have the strength and courage that I need to get through another surgery
Thank you and God bless you,
Luke's Mommy Sue

Guess whose a uncle? Or should I saw guess whose a Grandma? Or perhaps I should say guess whose a Mommy? Introducing Abigail Grace Thomure born July 4, 2012

Here's Natalie and Baby Abigail. Natalie did an amazing job giving birth, I'm so proud of her.
Josh has loved every minute he's spent with Abigail, he loves singing to her and reading the Bible to her.

Luke loves having us put Abigail down next to him, he yells when we take her away, he's really enjoying being an Uncle.

I was so blessed to be a part of Natalie's birthing process, she let me catch baby Abigail. It was one of the most amazing moments of my life.
Grandpa Gordy loves holding Abigail and even offered to change her diaper the other day.

Can you tell she's the center of our family right now? Here's Great Grandma meeting her for the first time.
