Surgery Date Set

Well, the Call came in today... I was awaiting a call back from the cardiologist's office about a question I had reguarding something that concerned me about Hunter's skin color ( a little purple, but has gone away with a warm blanket swaddling him) and when I saw the number I knew that it was the Cardiologist's office, however they were not calling me back with an answer to that specific question. The sweet woman on the other side of the phone informed me that the surgeons had set a date for his surgery, with a lump in my throat and holding my sweet baby so tightly, I asked her the date and she said Wednesday December 9th! I thought, that is only 9 days away! I was shocked with a date so soon. She then informed me of all that would be going on the few days before the surgery and where and when we would need to be.

This is very bitter sweet for me! I am SO incredibly thankful that Hunter will have those 2 holes in his heart fixed and that the Lord gave those 2 doctors the knowledge to perform the surgery, but in the same breath I am SCARED to death, I think i have been trembling since i got off the phone! Its such a weird feeling. I am calm but shaky at the same time. I know the Lord is so faithful and that he is holding my sweet boy in the palm of his hands! Christ has been faithful yesterday and today and I KNOW he will continue to be faithful to our sweet family, we just have to lean on him and let him ALONE be our strength!

"...And I will fear no evil
For my God is with me
and If my God is with me
then whom shall I fear.
Oh no, YOU never let go
through the calm and through the storm
Oh no, you never let go
In every High and EVERY low
Oh no, you never let go
Lord, you never let go of me..."

I am praising the Lord for my sweet baby getting his heart "fixed" and Jarrod and I are Praying for Strength and realiance on the Lord for this upcoming event!
Thank you sweet savior for all you provide!! You are far more gracious than I deserve!

Surgery Updates

Today was Hunter's cardiologist appt and we got to discuss and see how our precious boy was doing. He now weighs 9lbs 12 oz, He hasn't gained that much weight since his last visit but he's still gaining! Yaay! He is still doing really well and eating good. However Dr. Ettedgui feels that it is time to get our surgery plans started! I was upset to hear that its almost time, But I gotta trust that the Lord is going to take care of my precious boy no matter what and that he will give these Dr's the knowledge and skill to preform this surgery well! Its still so nerve wrecking, I wish that I could take it all away... "Be anxious for nothing, but in all things by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God"

Dr. Ettedgui will be meeting with his staff of cardiologist's this evening and will discuss Hunter's case and then next thursday they will meet with the board of surgeons to pick a date to perform the surgery. We are thinking that it will be within the next 3 weeks!

Please Continue to pray for My Sweet Baby Boy as well as Jarrod and I as we start our journey down this road.

So Excited!

Hunter's Christmas Picture!


Playing on his playtime mat!

Sweet Yawn

I can't believe that he is 2.5 months old!!

Sorry its been so long since my last update. Things around the Greene home have been super busy!
Hunter is now 10.5 weeks old! I can't believe that in just a few weeks he will be 3 MONTHS! he is growing like a little weed! He is now fitting into some of his 3 months clothes && there is one 6 month shirt (fits smaller) that he can wear! Where is the pause button when you need it! =D Man, were does the time go?! We have been taking boo-coo's of pictures and just enjoying all the new things that he does every day! Every day I grow more and more in love with him!

He has been smiling up a storm! When Jarrod will look at him and talk to him from time to time (more times than less) he will smile and let out this sweet giggle! Oh how it melts my heart! I know its not a "responsive/knowing" giggle yet, but sweet none the less!! We are approaching our first family Thanksgiving. I am so excited to have an amazing husband and sweet little boy to share it with! My mom bought him the sweetest little thanksgiving outfit and sleeper! I can't wait to try it on him and take some pictures!

&& of course I have already started pulling out my christmas decor! I know what your thinking, "it's not even thanksgiving yet". I just can't wait! It looks so cute all over the house. Next week we will put up our christmas tree! I'm so stinking excited!
