One More Time Tubies!

Surgery is scheduled tomorrow at 10:30. It shouldn't take more than 30 minutes as they just have to take out those darn tubies! Matt is taking Brady for surgery and I'm am holding down the fort here with Eli, Cara, and Allie. Please pray for Brady as he can't eat or drink until after the surgery, for his safety under anesthesia, and for a smooth recovery.

Today was a busy, fun day. Brady and I went to PT this morning. I'm starting to kind of cringe as I watch Brady be somewhat defiant these days. When PT Linda asks him to do something, sometimes he does, sometimes he says "no!", and sometimes he just goes and does something else. I know this is typical 2, and don't get me wrong, I love seeing Brady assert some control in his life, but I also want him to be a sweet, compliant boy. Not so sure that is in the cards for our hero Brady.

Three fantastic gift baskets were devivered to our house today!

Our amazing gift baskets from the angels at the Michael Napoleone Memorial Foundation. Thank you!!!

The kids were totally distracted from eating lunch by all of the new things in the baskets! We had fun trying sunglasses on Allie as she ate lunch!
Sweet baby Allie (7 months tomorrow) enjoying some green beans and her new sunglasses

The three amigos trying out their new hats, sunglasses, and beach chairs.

Brady and I flushing his tubies for the last time tonight. I was a little sentimental honestly. Notice Brady in the picture below cleaning his tubie with the alcohol pad all by himself. I kind of let the rules of a steriel procedure slide tonight! By the end of it, I had Brady saying "See ya tubies!" Isn't he a cutie?

The Festival of Hope is tomorrow night. I think I finally finished my speech and practiced my song a few times. Please say a prayer for me as I'm nervous to step out from behind my computer and speak in front of a live audience. I just want to convey Brady's story in a way that glorifies God and honors my precious boy. Matt and I will be lighting a luminary at the ceremony tomorow night in honor of Brady Andrew Williams...


  1. Hoping all goes well today!

  2. Goodbye TUBIES!!! I am so happy for you all! I will continue to pray! Can't wait to see you!
