Waiting it out in the hospital...

While we have been here at the hospital for what feels like months...in reality has only been a few days. The days for the most part have been filled with lots of sleeping...at least for G-baby...sometimes :) We are trying to stay positive and have a little fun...even if it is just a little.

Here's a good picture of Jayne trying to cheer G-baby up. The bandage on his neck is from where they had to do a procedure. During this procedure they had to make a small incision in his neck and with tiny cameras they put a stent in his artery near his heart so that if any of the blood clots break lose the stent has a little "umbrella" that will catch it before it damages his heart. The doctors are just trying to make sure nothing happens to our good man's heart...he's gonna need it really soon for some baseball! (PS- notice his cell phone in his lap...I don't think he would have survived the first night without it glued to his hands :))
Of course, being his big sisters we had to have a little fun teasing. The first 3 days Garrett was not allowed to leave his bed except for the few minutes required to go to the bathroom. We had to take advantage of this. The hospital had this poster on the wall so we filled it out...of course not much of it has to do with G-baby. He thought it was "hilarious" that we put his favorite book as Twilight...since he thinks his sisters are crazy obsessive with it. :) Our favorite part was his photograph...it took all day to draw those muscles.

I hope that you are hanging in there Garrett!!! I know you are strong and that the Lord is watching out for you. We all love you so much and you are always in our prayers. Issac was so sad when we left the other day and last night he looked at me and said "Mom, I really hope he gets better soon, I really love him!!" You are so loved and we know that you can get through anything. Love you so much and many hugs and kisses!!!!!
