a few more days...

 
In a couple of days we'll load up the car & head to UCSF, unsure of when we'll return. We're hoping to fall within the 'typical' 7-10 days, but we learned with the Norwood & Glenn that it doesn't always work out the way you hope.
The past several days we've been busy getting our lives in order so that family can slide into our place & take over for us. Jon & I will take Joshua to UCSF, & my family will take over our typical family/home responsibilities.  Its hard to imagine life goes on for the rest of the world, as we face this trial.  But to be honest, we feel encouraged as we enter this phase of the journey.  
Again, we are endlessly thankful for all of the help, the kind words, the prayers. I'll do my best to update the blog as things progress. I may not get to post substantial updates, but I'll do my best to keep the blog current.
**Thanks Carrie for snapping the cute picture :)

That is SUCH a cute picture of Josh! He's going to do so great. Of course we'll be praying for a quick recovery. Hugs to you all.

We're thinking about Josh and have him in our prayers.

We love you, buddy!

P.S. the last few times I've seen him I've asked what he wants me to call him and he always says, "beaujie!" He says it's better than Josh or Joshie. Haha...silly boy!

Awww your little fighter will do awesome! Will be checking the blog for updates - and will be praying for sure. Didn't realize you were at UCSF - does that mean you're in California? So are we - in Southern California!

We'll be thinking of you. Our son Charlie had his Fontan last March and it has revolutionised his life!! It's scary and stressful to have to take your child back into the hospital but it is SO worth it afterwards! We'll be watching for news. x
