Merry Christmas to All... the best gift ever! Day 17 12/25/09

This was our precious Christmas card, my friend Dee Howell from Dee Howell Photography took a few pictures of Hank before surgery for his birth announcement/family Christmas Card.

We absolutely love it, I found this card on one of my favorite sites, and Aunt Trista went and printed them for me! Love Aunt Trista, she's a lifesaver!

Grandpa and Grandma Harughty came to see Hank last night and hold him for the first time
Grumps held Hank this morning for the first time!

We also got some SUPER news today! Dr. Douglas came by and took Hank's chest tube out, and his pace maker wires... and he told us we are going to be discharged tomorrow if he does well from the removal of those two things!

We are so blessed to be home soon.

Santa Claus even found Hank at the hosptial....

Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace,
goodwill toward men!

Merry Christmas Ya'll

Hey guys,
Thank you for being such an awesome testimony to Our Lord Jesus! Both of you have fought the fight against Satin and won. So many times people want to ask why God has allowed this to happen and they either don't know about the battle between God and Satin, or have forgotten. God has allowed this event in your life to prove "HIS" strength living inside both of your lives. I count it a blessing and reward to be involved in both of your lives. My christian life is stronger and deeper because of you two and the example you set for each of your family and friends. Praise God for our new grandson "HANK"! Glory to God in the Highest and on Earth Peace and Good Will Toward Men. Love, Mom(Donna)
