Griffin's doing fantastic...

Wednesday, September 23, 2009

Those were the words that his Cardiologist said about Griffin last week FANTASTIC!!! It was such an answer to prayer. I mean don't get me wrong Griffin still does need a third surgery, but right now he is doing amazing. I guess kids with defects can have "leaky hearts" because of the surgeries, but nothing like that is going on for Griffin. We have heard differing opinions on when Griffin will need his next surgery so we are just thinking it could be as close as 18 months old or as far away as 3 years old. The great thing is that we know that God is completely in control and whenever it is it will be perfect timing. We are so thankful for the blessing Griffin has been to our family, can't tell you how proud we are to be his parents.

Now we are just focusing in on baby things. I can't believe he is already 8 months old already!! Griffin now has two teeth and is sitting up now. He still falls over occasionally, but for the most part he is loving sitting up and playing with toys. He is eating all kinds of food, still taking a bit with real people food. He can have a tendency to choke so that is never fun. I don't know if it is from having the ventilator in or if that is just how God made him. Not going to lie the choking has given me a bit of a heart attack, so we are trying to take it slow. Griffin is always just so happy and I can't even begin to tell you how thankful we are for that, especially with all that he has been through. We are also taking Griffin to a chiropractor (Mark Meyers) to help him with a bit of tightness in his neck. So we are excited to see what he can do for him and so thankful for the way he has blessed us with his serves!!

Things have been pretty crazy around here with Eli starting up school, Griffin getting older and wanting to do more, Eden becoming quite the little girl, and John now being the High School director at our church. Even though it might be crazy we are loving it and loving where God has us. There have been some rough times and we know that there are some rough times to come, but we are holding on to the promises that God never fails, never leaves us, and is always with us and going ahead of us!!

Sorry it has been so long, thank you to all of you who have taken an interest in our family and all the prayers.
Love you all.
