Good news on all fronts

Bodie had his abdominal ultrasound today, and other than giving the tech an earful about how he didn't want to be touched and he was starving, he did great! The really good news is that it came back completely normal! Apparently he has a little "sludge" in his gall bladder, which may have been what the ER docs were feeling, but no masses of any kind! Praise God!!!! Thank you so much for all of your prayers! Please just keep praying for Bodie's health in general - and for mommy's nerves, which are kind of frazzled at the moment (the constant worrying for 8 weeks now is starting to take its toll - and I need to daily remind myself to just give it to God and remember that since He's in control, we don't have to be).

On other fronts, Bodie's old roomie Isaac is going home Monday!!! What a long haul the little guy has had, and he's really going home in just a couple of days now! Talk about a HUGE answer to prayer. Please keep him in your prayers over the next few days, that his feeds increase so that he doesn't need his NG tube for very long - and that his lungs mature more so that he doesn't need the supplemental oxygen anymore.

A lot of you have asked how you can help, and so many of you have responded by providing meals to us over the last 2 months - thank you, thank you, thank you! Because we're still pretty overwhelmed at transitioning from 1 kids to 2, particularly with a #2 who not only has special medical needs and can't be allowed to get too worked up, but also appears to be a crankypants in general, we've extended our meal rotation for 2 more weeks for anyone else who would like to help. Please check out our meal calendar at


  1. We are so happy to hear how well Bodie is doing. We will continue to keep you, Amy (and of course the whole the fam), in our prayers -that the peace of God will guard your hearts and minds over powering any worry. Love, Bonnie & the Kerrs

  2. So happy to hear your good news, another answer to prayer! Wonderful Isaac will soon be enjoying the comforts of home too! Thanks for making my day! Erin
