Check Out the New Foot Angle!!

Thank you for all your prayers, Mark's tenotomy went well, and he is recovering nicely. He is still a bit grumpy, and just isn't smiling as much, but I'm sure that he will forgive us in a day or two. :-)

It was such a sunny day here yesterday! It was somehow a bit reassuring to see the sun streaming into the hospital room as we waited for him to come out of surgery. :-) God is so good to us!

Here he is just before surgery with Daddy...

If you have to have surgery and you are a kiddo, Shriner's is a great place for that! Mark was treated very well, we loved all the nurses, and everything went swimmingly. They really are focused on making the kids feel comfortable.

By the time we left we were the proud owners of new baby quilt, Winnie the pooh pillowcase, St. Patrick's day beanie, koala beanie, and a soft block crib toy. They hand out toys for each kiddo who has surgery. It was funny to see a nurse walking around with her arms full of toy packages.

I think the best gift of all was the improved foot angle. :-)

These feet look almost ready to walk!


  1. Yay! Great looking foot angle! Can't wait to see those little feet out of casts!

  2. Yes, great to hear his surgery went well. Praise God for the Shriners!

  3. I'm very happy that it all went well! Mark is so sweet :o) I hope he will start smiling soon. We will keep praying :o)

  4. That little guy of yours is just so stinkin cute. I'm glad it went well. :)
