Baby Vance-A 24 hour portfolio
He pretty much has been sedated since the surgery yesterday. When I spoke with my husband this evening he said the baby was in quite a bit of pain. So the doctors ended up giving him morphine. He said it was so terribly sad as the baby's face kept wincing up in pain but he couldn't really cry because of the tape around his mouth and the tubes in his throat. My heart goes out to him. If you all would please continue to pray for his well being and also that his pain can be relieved we would be so appreciative. On a lighter note, the doctor is well pleased with the surgery and believes that he won't have to have more surgeries later on. We are elated with this news because before this most recent surgery he thought he would have to have more. What a wonderful blessing this is and we are extremely thankful for it.

Baby Vance, Heather, son Vance and daddy Vance. I just love all these Vance's!

I wonder who's head dropped first!
The apple doesn't fall far from the tree!
It looks like little Gemma couldn't hold out any longer either!

And my favorite....grandpa and Gemma snuggling!

AH, it doesn't get better than this!
There can't be anything better than to have two grandpa's in the same place and the same time. I'm sure Gemma is loving it. Here is Heather's father holding Gemma and the other guy belongs to me!! Heather's mom and dad came over from Utah for the week too. I'm so thankful Vance and Heather didn't have to weather this week alone. I love family! I only wish I could have been there too. But at least I have almost instant photos of all that is happening. Internet is a wonderful thing!
