Here is how this will work

I cant believe that I am sitting down and writing this. For years I knew this time would come however it was something that was just in the back of my mind… In a weird way I felt like it would never actually come.

But in less than 12 hours; Mason will go in for his 3rd open heart surgery.

I cant tell you how terrifying this is for us – because no words to describe how we are feeling would do it justice. It sucks and we are looking forward to this being behind us…

Today Mason had all of his pre-op appointments and he has been cleared for surgery in the morning. The plan is as follows:
- Arrive to Children's 6:15
- Surgery is scheduled at 7:30am
- Total "Surgery" time is 5-6 hours
- We sit and wait, wait, and wait some more....

We know there are a lot of people who will be thinking about us, praying for Mason and wanting updates. The main purpose of this entry is to let you know that this will be the main way we will communicate. We will try not to overload facebook so if you havent seen a post, or a text- come here - We will be writing. (During his surgery you could expect 2-4 updates - This way you can follow his complete journey).

If you are wondering what you can do for us... We would only ask one thing. Please keep Mason and his medical team in your prayers daily.

This is a big surgery but our God is bigger and we trust in him.

Today's post title comes to you from the one and only Greg Garka... Thanks for the idea babe!

As far as Mason is concernced today was another good day for our little man!
We made our goal and got up and went on a total of three walks. The last walk of the night he spotted the “playroom” and was interested so we stopped and visited with our neighbors while he played. It was the highlight of the day.

His appetite decreased today but that is to be expected since he hadn’t yet had a bowel movement (in 6 days)– however about 60 minutes ago things changed in that department and I am happy to report his bowels are working and back in action…


During his echo he was again a crowd pleaser and was on his best behavior. The technician said that he was the best 3 year old she has done. It is so funny; he gets upset when something is about to happen and he doesn’t understand what. He tells us he is scared and then after we explain to him what they are going to do and that it won’t hurt – he is…
