Prayers Please

It is late and I am tired as I write this so it will be short and sweet until tomorrow. I just made the two hour drive back here to St. Pete after spending a night at home.  I had a wonderful day with my boys, which I will blog more about tomorrow. As soon as I returned here, I went straight to the hospital to snuggle with my little fighter. When I walked in he was awake looking all around him. I scrubbed in and immediately picked him up and within five minutes he was fast asleep on Mommy's chest. We sat there together for an hour and a half. I smelled his hair, stroked his back and gave a hundred I missed you kisses.  I just wanted to quickly jump on here in case anyone may stop by tonight or early morning tomorrow to let you know that Paxton will be going into surgery tomorrow to get his feeding tube placed. While the surgery itself is relatively quick, about an hour, easy peasy compared to 5 hours of open heart surgery actually, it is still always a risk with these little heart babies.  So, I come to you late tonight asking for anyone who stops by to please take a moment and pray not only for the surgery to go well, but for his recovery to go smoothly also.  If he handles surgery and recovers well, we may be able to go home in about 2 weeks. I am ready to get my  boy out of the hospital. His brothers are SO ready to meet him and Mommy and Daddy can't wait to snuggle with him in bed.  I will be updating tomorrow on facebook and since we have quite a few new visitors praying for Paxton via our blog I will be updating on his progress through twitter again until I can get to updating a post! It is located on the left side bar under the Blogher ad. As you can see, it has been a long time since I posted on twitter, sorta weird to see what the last "tweet" about feeling the baby kick before we knew he was sick and that we would be where we are right now. I remember exactly where I was when I "tweeted" that. It's weird how life does that to ya... Paxton is doing fantastic as of tonight, may God allow him to continue on this path towards home!  Wouldn't that be something to be so very, very thankful for! Until next time, cherish the little things my friends!

I'll be praying for your little fighter today!
And i may just have to jump on the twitter wagon to hear the updates! I don't do twitter but this sounds like a good reason to start! =)

We're saying an extra little pray for him today! I know God is watching over him and will take very good care of your little boy. We hope for a speedy recovery as well. Take Care.

I'm glad to hear the surgery went smoothly! But sorry to hear he's having trouble in recovery! That photo you posted was so precious and heart breaking at the same time! To see the little guy all hooked up with all the wires just makes my heart hurt. But thank God that we have doctors who know how to help these days!!
I'm heading to bed now but i'll be back first thing in the morning to see if there's an update on your little man. I'll keep praying for you all! That you'll be able to get some rest tonight as well and for peace during this time.
