His BIG Day.

I woke up early this morning
grabbed a cuppa coffee
and sat and prayed over this sweet boy while he slept.

SUCH a conflict of emotion.
Part terrified
part thankful that he has the opportunity for today.

They just called with the first update.
He is on bypass now,
so far
so good.

I seriously cannot wrap my brain around all that is to come.
No matter how many times they come in here and ask if I am prepared for what he will look like
I cannot fathom it.
The swelling.
The bleeding.
The tubes.
The wires.

I have tremendous peace at the moment and I know he is being bathed in prayer from across the nation.

(And so is Captain America)


  1. thinking of you guys here in VA.
    just think, regardless of all the tubes and swelling, his color may look so good after surgery. can't wait to see him later.

  2. Continuously praying!! You ALL—JJ, Mom, Dad, brothers, family, doctors, nurses, surgeons, technicians, everyone--will be in our thoughts and prayers throughout the day!

  3. Praying for all of you. Praying this verse for you today.

    "Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us" Ephesians 3:20


  4. Lots of prayers from Nebraska! I talked to my dad about Joshua's surgery cause he also works with the heart team, he couldn't tell me much though because i had a hard time explaining his condition, but i do understand why bypass is.
    Many prayers toward for the lil man <333
    God Bless~

  9. I am a blubbering mess over in Korea! Tears dripping in my coffee thank you very much! Sonia you are such a blessing and example of Christianity! I pray that while I sip my morning coffee (a little salty due to the tears) that you are tucking that sweet precious boy into a nice long slumber so that he can wake up stronger tomorrow! We love you and continue to drown you in prayer! xoxo JoRie

  10. Thinking of you today!! Love Captian America!!
