Surgery on Tuesday! (+ Urgent Prayer Request)

Thank you so much for praying for Hunter over the past couple of days.... your encouragement means so much to us and has helped these few days go by a little bit faster ;-)
Hunter's pulmonologist said that his lungs sound great (YAY!) but his upper airways are pretty congested. She started him on Prednisone so we can be sure over the next few days that his airways stay open. If they do, and if his cold doesn't get any worse, he should be ok for surgery on Tuesday morning....

And that's our biggest prayer!

This surgery will open up a whole new world for him... whether the fluid clears up and his hearing is restored or if he needs a hearing aid; either way, it will be a big step forward for him... and for us :-)

As always, we'll keep you posted!

** Urgent prayer request;  I had never heard of Hydrops before Hunter (here and here) but we now know how dangerous and terrifying it is. I 'met' this Mama as I read through random comments on another blog and learned that the sweet baby girl she is carrying is surrounded by the same fluid.. and my heart breaks for her. She needs to carry this baby for 4 more weeks and could use the support and prayer I know you're all so faithful about! I thought it would be selfish to keep you all to myself ;-) We know better than anyone that our God performs miracles.... HUGE miracles! I believe He will do no less for Baby Brynlee, too!

We didn't have the chance to pray for Hunter on this side of his life.... before he was born. I know it wasn't by coincidence that the ONLY comment I read on that blog was Kim's comment about her baby girl. I can't get them off my mind and consider it an honor to be able to pray for Baby Brynlee on this side. Please pray for them.... for peace and comfort for Kim and her husband, that God will protect their sweet Lilianna's heart and allow her to be a big sister, that He will hold Baby Brynlee just like He has held Hunter... and specifically, that He will take this fluid away; that it won't be allowed the chance to hurt her. Pray for a miracle, friends.

I know that once you read their story, you'll become their prayer warriors, too but I will keep you posted as Kim and her husband learn more over the next few weeks. Every week that Baby Girl is allowed to grow in her Mama' belly is an answer to prayer and one more chance for her to grow stronger.... each day counts! **

And I can't end a post without a picture of our sweet babies.... our precious Valentine's ;-)

Aren't they just the cutest?!?!? I can't get enough :-)


  1. Already praying...praying without ceasing.

  2. I can't begin to tell you how blessed I am by your sweet words. Thank you for being a blessing to us during this time. You have an amazing group of people who have been praying for you, and I pray God blesses all of you greatly. I'll be praying for Hunter's surgery on Tuesday. Also, would you mind if I posted a link to your blog on my Facebook page? I want to share my prayer people too.

    Again, you have been a huge blessing to me! I greatly appreciate you!


  3. It's an honor to pray for you and Bean! I'm just so thankful that we crossed paths :-)

    Post away! Would love to share prayer warriors with you!


  4. Awww, they really are the cutest! I had never heard of Hydrops until your story either, and I will definitely be praying for Kim and her little one. I am sure your story is so uplifting for her. I'll also be praying for that sweet little man that his little ears can be straightened out so he can hear all the beautiful sounds he is missing (especially the voices of his family who love him).

  5. Lindsay,
    George, Sam and I will be praying for little Hunter. That little guy is so precious….. we will also keep Brynlee in our prayers. We pray that God will also calm and comfort Joey, you and Brynlee's parents as you face these trials.
    Love, George and Ellen


We love to hear your thoughts, but if you leave one please own it and leave a name with your comment :-)
