Thank You !!!!

 I have old pictures of Luke to show. No new ones, as I have yet to take time to learn to load my pictures. Still can not find the ones the Geeks  lost. 
 Luke has been a happy boy most all the time. 
His grandmother"Gigi"  did this to his hair and compared him to big boy burger  kid.   

 Here I am after a bit of playing with Luke  . I always sleep better after playing on the floor with great grandkids. 
 This was a couple years ago on the family vacation.  Granddaughter Lynzie and her awesome husband Mark, with big brother Max and Little brother Luke.
Last Halloween squeezing in with papaw Ted. I love this picture.
Lynzie sent this to us and we had a good laugh.   Toe sucking instead of eating lunch.  

  Yesterday was Luke's surgery, to remove polyps in his sinuses.  I cried a lot yesterday. Lynzie sent photos of him in the car, on the way to the hospital,  saying, "Mommy I am hungry, I don't want my nose fixed". Then one of him playing on a little push car thing the hospital uses for children. A picture of the nurse pushing him in that car with his blanket going to surgery, without his parents ...he went peacefully.  Later there was a picture of him sleeping. There was dried blood around his nostrils. His mommy got to stay with him at the hospital. He will probably be home some time today. I wanted to thank all of you for the prayers and good wishes for our Luke.  You all have been so very kind, my heart is full.  Bless you. XO

    1. Debbie, I always say "Ain't that right papaw" when I look at the picture of Ted and Luke in the chair together. The way Luke is looking at Ted. Oh him sucking his toe at the table cracked us up. Isn't that just like a boy? Blessings, stay safe. xoxo, Susie

  4. Thanks you for the update. What a relief to know that it is over and he did well!! Now I think he likely needs lots of ice-cream! He did look just like Bob's Big Boy! You are doing good to play with your grandkids, I cannot even get down or up from the floor now. The last time I accidentally ended up on the floor, we almost had to call the fire department!

    1. Ginny, I think Luke deserves some ice cream too. He did very well ..even though he was hungry and sleepy. He is getting to go home this morning. Thank God. The prayers sure do help us thru. Do not get on the floor again honey. Maybe it's the getting down and then back up that makes me sleep so well. LOL. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

  13. Hi Susie,
    I"m so glad that surgery went well and he's coming home, I"m also grateful that he went into surgery peacefully. It doesn't make it easier on you all but it helps a tiny bit. He sure is a cutie pie.. I had a Bobs Big Boy doll just like that when I was a kid :).. Praying for a full and speedy recovery for little Luke XO

    We never like to hear about kids having surgery, but I am glad to hear they can do things like this when the are needed, especially now when a lot of hospital visits are being postponed.

    1. Oh yes, Sandi. I was afraid it would get canceled again. Once Luke's dr. got Covid I thought he would have to wait again...But another dr did the surgery. I am thanking our Lord. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

  26. Oh Susie, I'm so far behind in my blog reading. Bless sweet Luke and his parents! Yes, I teared up just reading what you wrote about. My youngest daughter went into surgery too many times when she was young. It was SOOO hard letting them take her! Our second daughter had several surgeries as a young adult and I tell you that was also hard. Hard on a mama!! I pray Luke is recovering now and the worst is behind them.
    Always good to hear from you, my friend!

    1. Thank you Doris. too have been thru the mommy scares of children in surgery. It's worse than surgery on ourselves. Luke did well and is home recovering pretty well. He did not like take the antibiotics for the infection in his sinuses but his parents tried every trick. He is kind of resolved to it and does the netipot nasal rinses too. Thank you always for your kind prayers. Blessings to all of you, xoxo, Susie

  32. Oh, I'm so sorry Luke had to go through all this, Susie. These are the most precious pictures of him. I love the one of him next to the bbb kid. I smiled when you were on the floor playing with him because Francesca wanted me to read her a book this weekend, and I said to her, "Ok, but grandma has to get some pillows to sit on first." haha I hope Luke heals nicely, and I just said a prayer for him. Take care, Susie.

    love ya,
