Happy Wednesday

Hey everyone!  We have had a great couple of days filled with family and friends.  As I type this, Lily is on her way to Allie’s house for a play date.  She was so excited she couldn’t stand it!  Riley is going to have a boys day with Justin and Tyler at home.  However, he won’t be playing superheroes with them today. 

As if we haven’t had enough medical emergencies lately, Riley hit the left corner of his eye yesterday.  He was playing superheroes with a “cape” blanket over his head and ran into a corner.  He probably could have used a stitch a two, but we couldn’t put him through any more stitches.  It stopped bleeding and we just put some neosporin and a band aid on it.  So, he will have another scar to impress his girlfriend with later in life.  Like, when he’s 21!  HA HA

We will be shaving Daddy’s head tonight.  He has his MRI at 3:00 tomorrow, and he will be coming home with little adhesive circles on his head for the image guidance used during the surgery.  After we shave his head tonight, we are going to sticker up our own heads so the kids know what to expect tomorrow.  We are trying to prepare them as much as possible without going into too much detail.  They do know that the he has surgery on Friday to remove his boo boo in his head.  They also know that he will come home with staples and will keep them for 2 weeks.  You can see the sweet concern on precious Lily’s face.  She is so in love with her daddy and is just trying to understand the whole situation.  I just know that God will grant her the peace and calm in her heart during this time.  Riley has been taking the situation so very well.  He just keeps running into walls and being a boy.  =) He did ask Daddy why he is taking medicine.  Ricky explained that he has a boo boo in his head.  Riley liked that answer and ran off to play ball. 

Once again, we cannot thank everyone enough for the love and support we have been shown.  God is shining so brightly in every one of you!  We are so grateful to have each and every one of you in our lives.

    Maybe I’m just demented, but I think the head shaving and sticker party will be such fun! What a great memory for you all!
    Keep your head up and your heart open. As Lily has said, “G-d is so big he’s got his arms around this one”. We love you!
    Alisa, Nelson and Renee
