Is it a baby or a Pterodactyl?!?!

Yesterday Molly and Macy came to visit - WHAT A TREAT! Macy is such a doll and loves to laugh and squeal with delight (Molly says she sounds like a pterodactyl and I had to look up how to spell that one!!) - Nathan took advantage of this. Molly laid Macy on Nathan's bed and he had her squealing non-stop. I don't think that baby girl could open her mouth any wider - it's SO ADORABLE!!

We could have a visit from them everyday!! Nathan has always loved babies and children and it so fun to see him back to being "normal" Nathan in a sense.

Wednesday is our only day without any appointments, so I decided to start wading through the ocean of paperwork I've been avoiding. Then, yesterday our friends Judy, Spencer and Hailey arrived. They came for a nephew's graduation and are going to stay here for a couple days - YIPEE for me!

Hoping to get Nathan back outside for walks once the weather straightens out - we haven't gone for a walk in forever (can you believe we don't want to walk in the rain!??!).

In less than a week we head back down to Harborview for the next step - literally - we hope! Keep praying! There is a hard lump on his leg where the femur is and Nathan is concerned about it - I choose to believe that it is bone growing/scar tissue and since he is so thin and laying down there is no fat around it. The pinky finger is still a concern too.

So Pray for -
* Continued healing of his femur
* His right pinky finger
* Weight gain
* He's doing awesome at cutting down on his meds, pray for continued low pain
* Continued peace and patience/God has sustained him, and he hasn't gone stir crazy yet - pray that this will continue!

Isaiah 26:3
You will keep in perfect peace
him whose mind is steadfast,
because he trusts in you.

Janice, I still have a bump on my leg at the spot where it healed (almost 20 years ago...yikes!) For some reason I think they said it was a calcium deposit?!? Praying everything continues healing as it should and that the sun will come out (tomorrow...tomorrow!)
