Hopefully Ford's Last Procedure For a While!

Tonight (Sept. 2nd) we are once again turning our prayer time towards our little Ford. Tomorrow he is going in to get his stint taken out that is in his ureter. Of course, I am always worried when he has to be put under and given anesthesia, not to mention being put on a ventilator.

I know he is so tough and has the Lord on his side, but I am a mother who worries. We are hoping it is just a day surgery and we are home tomorrow night. Hayden is coming with us and that's what we are planning for at this point.



So thankful right now that Gustav wasn't a Katrina or Rita, Lord knows that's an answered prayer for many of you who might have loved ones in its path.


I am sure many of you are wanting an update on our little miracles. They are AMAZING! They are closing in on 8 months come the 8th of this month... Can you believe it? They are just the two best people I have ever known. To know what they have been through and to see how resilient and wonderful they are... well, it just makes me want to be a stronger person and definitely stronger in my faith.

Let's see, Hayden is the "entertainer" as his Big Honey calls him. He is usually laughing about something, which sounds like static on a radio. He is also gabbing up a storm. He likes to stand non-stop, of course while we are holding him up and he just crawls all over you. My arms are getting tired.


That's because his brother Ford is now doing the same. He likes to stand now too! Ford is chatting more baby talk with is now too and of course, letting us know when he is NOT happy with a situation. That is a boy who knows what he wants, when he wants it.

Both boys like to be a part of all of the action. Both are rolling over pretty regularly now, but again... it is when THEY want to... not when you want them to.



Trey is a wonderful Daddy... he does every bit as much as I do and makes it look effortless. Ford and Hayden both give us a run for our money, and it is worth every last second of running around to keep them happy.

Mostly, we are just very happy they we are a family with Ford and Hayden... and we can't wait for all of the FIRSTS we get to spend with them.


Thanks for keeping our sweeties on your prayer list and keeping us in your thoughts too. I meet people around town who tell me they've been praying for the boys and it just warms my heart. There are also some wonderful people out there who have sent the boys sweet gifts and somehow in the trip back from Fort Worth I have misplaced your addresses, but I just want to thank you for your sweet gifts for the boys.


Keep Ford in your prayers tomorrow morning... I can't wait to tell him about all of the people who prayed for him, each and every time he had a procedure or went into surgery or during the really tough times in the NICU!

Love from the Hugheys,

Dana, Trey, Ford and Hayden

The boys are just adorable!!! We are still keeping all of you in our prayers and just know that Ford will come through this surgery just fine. We really appreciate the update and the pictures are just great. I hope things are getting easier for you and Trey and that the boys are easier to take care of now. Hope to have a report on Ford's surgery soon. Take care.

Dana and Trey, It is so wonderful to look and see if there are any new updates and when you have time to give us new news, it is finally great to be able to look and they new posts and laugh. Those boy's are just precious! Aren't you just ecstatic you are at the point you are now! Time was moving so slow at the beginning. Have fun with your boy's!
