Ford's One Tough Twinkie!



Our little Ford, never ceases to amaze us. He was in and out of his procedure today in under an hour and much to our delight he didn't have to be intubated. They used the mask and a different anesthetic... and Dr. Pugach was in and out with the stint.


Trey's mom joined us on the trip to Cook's in Fort Worth to help us keep Hayden busy while we tended to sweet Ford. You know, it really is hard on them... Ford wasn't allowed to eat for 8 hours and a number of nurses and doctors are messing with him trying to see if he was ready for surgery, but our little fella was an absolute trooper.

I have to tell you the nurses were enamored with him and his brother! They are such a cuties as you can see and those nurses today know how amazing it is to see how well Ford and Hayden are doing for being 25 weekers. They have a co-worker in pre-op whose baby just went home two weeks ago and was in the NICU with us, but this baby spent a year in the NICU. We are so blown away by our miracles and the power of prayer.






It was a long day and it pooped out my boys... ALL of them, even Daddy! We were out of the house by 6:15 AM and back home at 3 PM. We are just hoping and praying that is the last of that waiting room for a good long while. We have routine pulmonologist, urologist and nephrologist appointments, but it's more routine stuff... if all goes well and I BELIEVE it will!


Ford also got to see one of his favorite nurses today before surgery and well we were just as thrilled to see Wendy, she is certainly like family now. It made me feel better to see her right before the procedure... she just eased my fears a little. She was one of the many who helped get me through those 5 months in the NICU.

It was great to hold and love on Ford and Hayden tonight. They are such cuddle boys and I can't wait to get back into the living room with them.
We appreciate you thinking about us--
Dana, Trey, Ford and Hayden

PS-- IF you have not gotten a chance to see last night's post... you have to get a look at all of the pics... the boys are growing like crazy and handsome... whoooo wheee! I'm a proud Mommy!
