His head without the bandage....

Goodmorning. I wanted to post a few pictures of his head without the bandage so you could see what it looks like. I cried so hard when they took it off (for many reasons) not just because of how it looks. It was a happy and sad cry all at once I think. SO glad it is over, but can't believe what he endured. It puts it all into a different kind of perspective when you really see the incission. Every nurse and doctor has said that his incission is FABULOUS (what a relif) and that his head shape is great but still has some smoothing out to do ect....and is just where it should be. I can't not believe how talent these men are. They do things much greater than I can even expect. These surgeons are so smart it is visible before they even open their mouths and through all the smartness one has a dry sense of humor and breezes in and out and the other has the kindest eyes and is compassionate and stays a while. God has called them to do great things and I will be forever greatful.

So I must warn's sad to see but honastly this is good and just as it should be(thanks be to God!) Luke's incission...........

His sweet head and swollen eyes with out the bandages....breaks my heart to see him like this...

And here is good ole' "Ammy" getting to hold him for the first time

Here he is this morning...eyes are going down and hopefully will open later today or tomorrow....

And here is eating....not really that special of a pic but I just wanted to say they weighed him this morning and our son actually GAINED 3 ounces during his stay (when they prepared us that he would lose weight) LOL! I am NOT surprised:) hee hee


  1. He looks even better than yesterday! I am so glad we were able to come visit...we can't wait to see his baby blues again :) Keeping the prayers and good thoughts coming for all of you. Give Sugar Butt kisses for us! Aunt Jessie and Uncle J...PS Please give Lane lots of love for us, we didn't get to see him enough yesterday!

  2. Wow... that is amazing! I would not be surprised if he wants a buzz cut one day to show that off. Seems to be something a boy would be proud of! :) And you can always tell him that the doctors had to make room for that big, smart brain of his! Thanks for all of the posts... it's so great to know what's going on.

  3. I am so happy for you and the whole family. Thank you for posting these pictures. Tom was just asking me about you all. He looks absolutely perfect. I am so happy that the worst is over. We are still thinking of you and praying for everyone! :)
