Liam's Eye Surgery

"Peace I leave with you;
My peace I give to you."

Today marks the day of Liam's successful eye surgery! We praise God that everything went so well; thank you so much for praying. We felt a tremendous peace - so much so, that the nurse even commented on it! That is the Lord's doing, and we praise Him. He heard the prayers of our dear friends and family. Our sincere appreciation to each of you for your thoughtfulness, prayers, cards, and emails letting us know you were remembering Liam. You upheld us - thank you so much. We could feel the power of prayer at work.

A special thanks to my parents for caring for Elianna and Elijah while we were away, and to Ben's parents & family for the meals and amazing support. Much love to you all!

Here is little Liam, at the Children's Hospital waiting to see the doctor.
We arrived around 6:15 AM

He looks pretty proud of his stylish little hospital pjs!
All ready for surgery.

Out of surgery - a hungry and sleepy boy!
The last feeding Liam could have was at 2:30 AM. He didn't eat or drink again until after the surgery at 9:30 AM - what a trooper!

A very tired boy after all was said and done. The 4 hour ride home went smooth - Liam slept most of the way. We are amazed at the outcome and are thankful Liam is recovering here at home!

Love this boy.

"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort.."
II Cor. 1:3-4

I also have little boy is not much younger than your Liam, and the picture of him waking up hungry and woozy from surgery made my mama's heart palpitate a bit! Bravo to you both, strong and courageous parents that you are, for clinging to the Lord and claiming His peace. I'm so thankful that Liam did so well!
