Way too long between posts!

It's been well over a year since our last post. Most (if not all) of you follow Jamie and/or me on Facebook, so it was easy to fall in the habit of letting "status updates" suffice. It's a lot harder to share all of your thoughts and feelings that way. We need to get back to blogging to provide the kind of detail that the important moments in life deserve.

As many of you know, our youngest son Tyler just went through heart surgery once again. This was the third of three surgeries to provide a palliative "fix" to his heart defect Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome. This surgery was the Fontan procedure. I don't have all the medical and anatomical terminology down pat to explain it. Essentially, they built a wall to keep the red and blue blood from mixing, and they put in a larger shunt to allow better blood flow as he grows. Hopefully, this allow his heart to last into adulthood.

Tyler is recovering well and is even a little ahead of schedule, We are so grateful for all your prayers on his behalf. We know our Father in Heaven is looking out for this special boy. We have truly seen miracles from above.

I hope to update more frequently. I apologize for not having any pictures, but the wi-fi spot isn't great where we're at now.
