More surgery

Landon has healed from his aortic repair but continues to have problems eating.  The doctors and his parents have decided that in order to stop the constant irritation of a feeding tube inserted into his nose, that he will have one surgically inserted into his side.  He is starting to gain a bit more weight now, but still needs to increase his intake, which cannot be achieved through oral feeding at this time. 
I just got the message the he will be going in for the procedure about 4 pm today, please send prayers for his continued progress so they can all come home. 

Here are some recent photo of Landon

Landon and Daddy

One of my favorite shots of Landon and my BIL, Nick.  He's a great dad. 
I have no clue why I don't have a picture of Emily and Landon here, I'll have to fix that.
ps~ I knew Em would be a wonderful mom,  I love it when I'm right, she is amazing.

Toodles for now from Landon's favorite Aunt.  (big grin)
pss~Landon has a lot of great Aunts.

    1. I wish I could take credit for his good looks....but sadly I had nothing to do with it.

  3. What a beautiful baby! I hope he's doing well after the surgery. The photos remind me of my youngest who had several surgeries as a baby. He's almost 24 now and doing just fine. I'll keep Landon in my prayers.

  4. What a cutie! I hope he can come home soon!


He who angers you, controls you.

And my favorite.......You can't control what others say or do, but you can control your reaction.
