Celebrate Brandon Day!!

And – this is very important – though you and I may wish a longer life for our loved ones, they don't. Ironically, the first to accept God's decision of death is the one who dies.

While we are shaking heads in disbelief, they are lifting hands to worship.
While we are mourning at a grave, they are marveling at heaven.
While we are questioning God, they are praising God."
~Max Lucado

Please go and visit Brandon's Caringbridge site to read about him and about his family who have so beautifully been grieving his death. The above passage was taken from his site and , in all honesty, it makes me weep....but only because it is completely true. Praise God that our children are now healed!!

Brandon's beautiful light still shines one...just much brighter in Heaven. I can't wait to meet him!!

No Rejection For Noah!

It looks like Noah is NOT going through rejection and that is great news!! Praise God for that...but do continue to pray for Noah because he is still so very sick. The docs are just not completely certain what is going on with the little fellow. Let's pray that they figure some things out and that Noah's edema (swelling) goes down. He's so puffy that his little eyes are swollen shut...folks, that is so hard for a mommy to have to see so let's pray for Crystal too. Be sure to go read Crystal's complete update...

Also, don't forget Noah's big sister and his Dad.

Chest Tube For Noah

UPDATE: Noah is on his way back to the cath lab so let's be praying about that need to go check out his fluffy after-bath cute!!

The docs had to place a chest tube today. Hopefully, this will help Noah's lung. There will be a TRALI specialist stopping by to see Noah today...let's be praying for Noah's lungs and for the specialist to be able to figure out a great course of action!

Stable But Bleeding

This little cutie is back in the hospital looking all cute...just hanging out and bleeding....being "stable"! These tough kids can go through the toughest of situations (I mean really, how would you do if you had bleeds often?!) and look up at you and just grin!

Let's all pray for Logan today...pray that his bleeding will subside and that his life-saving transplant will happen soon!

Cool Kidney!

Kayden's mom has posted a great photo for Wordless Wednesday! It's a photo of Kayden's new kidney before it was transplanted!! Neat!

Are you an Organ Donor???

Let's Cheer Up Sammi!

Sammi is not feeling well right now...let's all go over to her Caringbridge site(click on the link from the COTA page) and cheer her on! Comments can be so encouraging when things are tough....

BlogLand...We Have Eyes!!

Look at those little sweet Noah eyes! They make me want to scoop him up and give him a big ol' squeeze...I think that would probably be frowned upon though since he is still on the vent and healing! lol!! Really, folks, that is one of the hardest things when your baby is sick...not being able to hold him all the time...

Be sure to head on over to the family blog and read Crystal's wonderful testimony. She is an amazing woman and so very strong. Noah is blessed to have her as him mommy!
