Splish Splash I was taking a Bath! Day 16 12/24/09


Wearing Christmas PJ's for Santa!

Getting ready for bed
The Harughty Clan

Mommy Daddy and Hank

Prayer Chain for Hank (we made it by all the visitors the day of surgery)

Surrounding that baby boy with scripture!

So we got a call last night at 11:30 and it was Hank's Nurse Jaqauna. I always have my stomach drop when the hospital calls. But it was actually great news! Since Hank is doing so well.... they had a room available in the Blue Moon Pod which is the Intermediate ICU Unit for heart patients. We are now breastfeeding so I am staying with Hank through the night and we are actually now doing Care By Parent with Hank. We feed, change his diapers, check his vital signs, etc. He also got his oxygen tube removed because he is breathing so well on his own!
We also got to give him his first bath. He screamed his head off, haha! Poor baby, we will give you a great bath later baby boy!

We had lots of first holdings today!

This picture was from the night before last but I love the way he holds
his lovey I couldn't help but post it!

Lord, thank you so much for the strength that you have given Baby Hank. Thank you for the grace and mercy that you have poured out on Samantha and Derric. We thank you so much for our little miracles this year. Tomorrow we will celebrate you with a new freshness. We know that without you, our babies wouldn't be here. Thank you Lord for the blessings that you have given us. Amen.

Thinking of you and your family. Maybe, just maybe, you will get an extra special gift tomorrow and get to take that precious baby home.

A friend emailed me the link to your page. I have enjoyed praying for and following sweet little Hank's wonderful progress and rejoicing in the answers to prayer!

Merry Christmas you beautiful family! May God bless you greatly and abundantly in the years to come!

Love in Christ,
