You know what the best thing ever is??

Sleeping in a real comfortable bed and snuggling with my lil man watching Dora/Diego/Mickey etc. for the 1000th time.

Looking out this window overlooking the harbor and the bridge and Lil man in my arms..

Seeing his face light up at the boats and the airplanes flying over once in a while

Watching Sonny and Zeb laughing and playing dinosaurs ...

Eating Zaxbys my husband ventured out to get ...yummo with my husband and sweet lil man and watching him dip dip his chicken into ranch and making a horrible mess he is on the bed....but whoo cares??

Doing all kind of crazy stuff to get Zbug to take his meds...You would laugh if you only knew, but we are just thankful he is here with us and has the strength to be stubborn... If I stand on my head and dance like a monkey will you please please take your Medicine Lil Z??? Please???

Holding my sweet lil boy completely strings attached...

Knowing that tommorow, I will be going home to see my two beautiful daughters and that we will be bringing home their brother and our family will be complete again.

Knowing that we prayed for a Miracle and God heard our prayers...I am so Thankful~

*** We were officially discharged from the unit about 5ish and we are at a beautiful hotel with a room overlooking the Charleston Harbor and the beautiful Bridge. The hospital helped us get it all set up. MUSC is awesome, but I don't want to go there ever again, seriously. The doctors recommended us staying in town tonight since it is late and we live so far, about 4 + hours with the detour and the unit is on call to us at anytime and the cardio doctors and we are 2 min from the hospital. We can actually see the hospital also from our view..that makes mommy more peaceful. Today has been a very overwhelming scary day, hearing all the what to dos when you get home and the look for this and if this happens and the what could happens etc. etc. I was in tears all day. However Zbug has some awesome people caring for him and they were just great. I keep reminding myself they are only a phone call away, but now that we are here at the hotel, I am feeling better. Z is a trooper.. alot stronger than I would ever be. He absolutely amazes me. I am looking at God's handiwork and once again I am crying. Overwhelmed by his Mercy and Grace.

Many Blessings~



  1. I found your blog through a comment you left on Jen Brown's caringbridge site. She is a dear friend and had mentioned the oddity of having both your boys be told they needed Ross procedures during the same day doctor visits. I am so happy to read that your son did not need the full blown procedure and is doing well. May God bless you and your family and keep you close during Zeb's recovery.

  2. Awesome Rhonda! We have been praying for you guys! Thank you Father for answering our prayers!
    Have a wonderful night's sleep and a safe trip home tomorrow!

  3. Bless you all - hope you have a safe journey home and can relax back into family life soon.
