Thankful for the gift of time - Surgery rescheduled

As I mentioned in my last post, Liam has been under the weather for over a week, coughing and then running a fever this past weekend, so I made the call into the surgeons office per protocol this morning...Because of his respiratory issues, they do not want to risk anything, so surgery is postponed until the 16th.  Liam and I went downtown to the hospital to get a virus panel done on him, so they could know for sure how long to postpone.  Thankfully, all the results came back negative, so that's good news! Praise God!  Now we just have to be hermits another 2 weeks (which is fine by me!) and keep him healthy until then. Today wasn't exactly the plan we were hoping, but we trust God's timing...And honestly, I am a little relieved and thankful for the gift of more time.

Liam has been such a trooper!  He really has an amazing attitude, taking everything in stride.  Here is a picture of him before his nose swab, and during lol.  In case you need to explain to your child how this is done....dealing with an older child now, I know it's super helpful for me if I can find pictures or videos that show him what a certain procedure is. 

We enjoyed watching the "Trainscape" at the hospital, it really is quite the display of electric trains!  We didn't get a chance to stop by during his cath, so we visited today.  It was actually nice to get out of the house for a bit, even if just to go for a test. 

We hope everyone has a safe and happy New Year's Eve tonight!  You all bless us so much, and we thank you for all the prayers, texts and messages - really means a lot to us and Liam.
