Thanks so much for all your prayers. Last night went better than we had anticipated. The smart little guy figured out by our serious somber faces that he would indeed need to have the long awaited catheter test and told us he was fine with it. He said "thats okay I will be asleep right"? We told him everything the doctor had told us and he seemed to be at ease. He was great until we told him that the doctor wanted him to go back to no activity. This broke his heart and he began to weep. He is just like any other nine year old boy who wants so badly to run and jump and play. We talked a lot about pain and suffering and how God uses this in beautiful ways to bring about his beauty. I can't expect him to get it, the Lord knows I did not at his age. But our prayer is that this will draw him even closer to him and that he will see glimpses of his goodness in the midst of hard circumstances. We focused last night on the many blessings God has given us in our life including his baby sister and how she had to suffer for 17 months in order to become part of our family because that was how God used her sweet life to impact many for his glory. He loved hearing that and begged us to go get another so she could have a sister. This is something he asks for from time to time. We told him God is using us right now to take care of the babies we have but that he could pray about it :). This is going to be a lot for him to process and we want to allow him to go through all the emotions encouraging him to give it to the lord as well. Proud of his maturity through it all and the fact that he is able to communicate well. We have a lot of fun things planned for the summer and are trying to concentrate on that and take things as they come.
