James and I began this blog at the very beginning of our pregnancy with Wyatt to share and update our new adventures as we became pregnant and start the new season of parenthood. Sixteen weeks into pregnancy, I had to go into surgery to ensure our son would not come too early and shortly after, we found out Wyatt has Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH). This is our humble attempt at being transparent and hopefully sharing the joys and love of Christ through this roller coaster ride we're on. And now to share even more with the new miracle on the way.

Day 83

Day 83: Overall it was a good day. James, sadly, got stuck at work until 6:30 and by the time he would have gotten through traffic, and hung out with Wyatt and us driving home it would have been too late so he just headed on home. :(. Wyatt's surgeon from Children's came over early this morning and checked on Wyatt and then I got a call from the scheduler and was told he is scheduled for his G-tube surgery on the 11th. We are nervous about this but trust the Lord in trusting the doctors. From the way it's been explained by docs, NPs, nurses & a mom that has a G-tube baby, we feel this is best. It seems to be the safest and easiest to work with at home. It's scary to send Wyatt into surgery again but again this is where we have to trust God in that He is in charge of Wyatt. On a side note, for the longest time, I could not remember Wyatt's surgeons name, we barely met him and with all the rotating nurses, NPs and doctors it's too much. But I can describe him to anybody that ask and if they know the surgeons, they know who I'm talking about. So here is my description of Dr. Schindel: he's about 50, strawberry blonde-more strawberry hair and just looking at him you think he should be in Ireland, sitting at a bar, sloshing around a pint or two of beer. And when he speaks you're kind of disappointed he doesn't have an Irish accent. Wyatt had some reflux today, sad but the he fell asleep sitting up, leaning forward with his head in my hand. So cute. No other changes were made. :)

Wyatt should be coming home soon!
