Update...

Well I am still in FL - my friend's son ended up having Neuro surgery on Sunday afternoon - about 4 PM. It seems he had a shunt put in when he was 5 months old. He is now 11 and there have never been any reconstruction to it. It seems it had a failing valve.

They were worried that the brain matter may have grown around the shunt in his head and they were positive that the lines down had calcium build up.....

Anyway - the good news is that they were able to remove all of the pieces from his head - and then they were able to get most of the lines out - but not all. Everything went well and they moved him out of ICU today and up to the Ped's ward....

The concern now is that he started running a fever this afternoon. So please keep Nick and his family in your prayers.

Meanwhile - I am getting a crash course in baby care.... yeah, well - let's just say that I informed my hubby that when he gets back from Iraq - well will be using every kind of protection that we can!!! LOL

Don't get my wrong - she is so cute and a lot of fun most of the time - but this is WORK!!! And I just don't think it is my calling!!!!

Not sure when I will be heading home... will try to keep you posted as I can! Thanks for all your prayer to this point.....

God Bless~
