Day 8 12/16/08



Today we had so much fun with our sweet lil' boy! The nurse we had today encouraged us to get Hank in and out of his bed by ourselves, we took his temperature, blood pressure, and changed diapers all day! We got to put him in clothes... we tried this last night but the nurse last night wanted him in only a t shirt and the one that was brought from our house hadn't been washed so we took a couple pics and pulled it off. But, today we had a nurse who saw the clothes I had in his drawer with feet and she said they were perfect. Derric told Hank he better get use to playing dress up because I was going to be doing it alot when we get home!


We also met with the nurses and anesthesiologist that will be working with him tomorrow, and child life to talk about Hanks Surgery that starts in the morning around 8:30. Please pray for him tomorrow all day! The surgery will last about 4-6 hours roughly. We are going to try to update the blog with every hourly update we get. We are going to love on him in the morning around 7:00 but he is sterile and we can't touch him much after 5am. He got 2 baths for the surgery. But they didn't smell like Johnson and Johnson they were sterile baths for surgery prep!

PLEASE PARY FOR HANK AND SEND THIS BLOG TO AS MANY PRAYER WARRIORS AS YOU KNOW SO THAT WE CAN SEE THE LORD WORK IN A MIRACULOUS WAY TOMORROW! HANK IS A CHAMP!

Sam, Please know MANY people are praying for baby Hank and your family. He is a precious little boy and I know he just can't wait to get home and be spoiled by his Mommy & Daddy! I'm praying for Hank and all of the doctors and nurses during his surgery and a speedy and successful recovery.
