Doing well!

Today we went from this....

To this!


He's even being naughty! But how can you get mad at a smile like that. At this moment he's doing laps in his crib :-)

We still have a couple more tests to do and we don't know what type of sickle cell he has yet, but we are praying he can go home tomorrow. It looks pretty good if he stays fever free. He hasn't had a fever since last night. And the pain and swelling in his arm has subsided...Thank you all for your faithful prayers and all the uplifting comments. It wonderful to know we have brothers and sister lifting us up in prayer. And The Lord has held us up! Praising God for his grace and mercy and bringing our little one here in time...

Here's some picture of tonight and yesterday...please pray for Brad, he's home with a stomach bug.
