This weekend was Hudson's birthday party - which of course was Elmo! We had a blast! Enjoy the pictures of the big 2 year old!

Here are a few things that Hudson does: he counts to 10, sings his abc's very loud, sings Jesus Loves Me, The Itsy Bitsy Spider, categorizes our family (Mimi, Pop, Uncle Jason, Aunt Alicia, Kaleb; Nana, Moose; Aunt Mel, Uncle Sean, Chloe; Nana, Pawpaw) and he definitely knows when he's ready to go home from shopping! He says "Mama, I home."

Daddy and Hudson carving his 1st pumpkin! Hudson liked watching, but he didn't want to put his hand inside. He said it was yucky!
Our tired Dr. He had enough Trick or Treating.
Out Trick or Treating. Hudson didn't really like it. The first costume he saw was a scary one.
Hudson and Mimi. Happy birthday Mimi! (Halloween is her birthday!)

Hudson is our fighter!
The Anesthesiologist, Dr. Hall, made this boxing glove for him during procedure # 2.
A very happy daddy, mommy, and Hudson! We were getting ready to go home.
Say a prayer of praise today for Hudson and continue to petition God to heal Cate.
We love you all.

I finally got away!

I thought that many people were probable curious to see what his scar looks like. Our night was much better last night. Hudson was only up two times during the night. We were very hopeful that his chest tube would be out today, but Dr. Salazar has decided that it is still putting too much fluid out. It is a good thing that the fluid is draining, but I know Hudson will feel so much better once the tube is out. Dr. Salazar is thinking by tomorrow for sure it should come out. After that we will have another Echo to take a look at his heart. If everything looks good we could be going home the next day! Praise God! Bryan and I are ready to be home, so I can only imagine how Hudson must feel. Keep the prayers coming they truly are working (for Hudson & Cate)!

Hudson's best buddy, Ethan, and mommy came to visit us. Hudson absolutely loved having another kid around to talk to and play with. Hudson says, please come visit! If you want to bring your kid up here that is okay as long as they don't have the slightest cold or anything that they might pass along to Hudson.
Hudson decided that he doesn't have sea legs anymore. I put him down to try to gradually start standing and he took off! (The bag you see is his chest tube that is draining. Pray that the drainage starts to slow so Hudson can get it taken out hopefully tomorrow.)
Backing up to last night...We had a good night. Hudson slept from 10:15 until 4:00 am. He was sound asleep while they would come in and take his blood pressure and temp and give him meds. Then they decided at 4:00 am that needed to get his weight! Are they crazy?!?! Let the poor baby and his mommy and daddy sleep! From 4:00 to 9:00 am we rotated between rocking in the chair, cuddling in the bed with us (a twin size bed), and watching our video. Hudson's appetite hasn't been the greatest today, but he is eating. Dr. Salazar said that Hudson should get his chest tube out tomorrow and maybe that a few days later we will be going home! We are reminded daily how blessed we have been and are during this process. Please continue to lift Hudson up for strength, healing, and a good night sleep!
Also, please continue to pray for Cate, Charlie, Alli and their families. There are at the beginning of a long journey.

Tomorrow is a big day for Cate as they are going to try to remove her from life support and see how heart heart responds. Please cover her and her family in prayer.
I have attached the link to our little friend Cate's blog on the side. Please continue praying for them as well.

Bryan and I decided that this would be the best way to keep all of our family and friends updated the next several weeks during Hudson's surgery and road to recovery.
Many of you know that Hudson was born with a hole in his heart and was diagnosed at 2 weeks with Ventricular Septal Defect (VSD). Hudson has been closely monitored over the past 18 months by his cardiologist Dr. Sapire. After his last appointment in February, Dr. Sapire decided to present Hudson's case to the board at Texas Children's Hospital. The Doctor's were all in agreement that surgery would be the best option. We will be admitted to Texas Children's Hospital June 12th and surgery will be June 13th.
Please pray for our family to have comfort and peace during this time. Pray for the Doctor's and nurse's who will be doing the surgery and that no complications arise.
