We got Drew all snuggled in for the night. They restarted his feeds (they stopped them at 5 am) and he's got his Veggie Tales going, so hopefully he will have a peaceful night.

And here's a cute picture of Ava enjoying her chow mein with us last night.

Drew looks so precious in that picture. I wish for you that things were moving faster. It is so hard on everyone, even Ava. I'm glad that you have such a wonderful group of friends and great family to help you through this time. I pray for Drew everyday and will continue to do so. It breaks my heart to see any child endure these struggles. I hope that things progress quicker and you begin to see the Drew that you know and miss.

just wanted to say that your family will be in my prayers. hope drew recovers soon.

Drew looks great, all snuggled in and ready for bed. I love that you are playing the veggie tales for him. I know this is a long hard road for you all and my heart goes out to you. Keep doing what your doing, cause thats the best thing for him. Your a wonderful momma and Drew is so lucky to have you. Get some rest sweetie!

that's cute! did someone bring that food in, or does the cafeteria have different food at night? that's off topic. i was really glad to see drew and get to pet him and love him a bit today. you're all doing such a great job, even ava with her insistence on picking up stray cheerios and tiny bits of trash to throw away. much love to the himmels!

Both of your babies look so precious! Drew looks so peaceful as he sleeps. We are continuing to pray HARD for all of you. I know these days can get long and difficult, but keep the big picture in mind. And I love what you wrote in one of your previous posts about Drew being "held" by Jesus. It's true! Hold onto that image. He is in the best hands!

I also found your site looking for support for parents with a chd child. My daugter also has DiGeorge, so it's nice to find other families that are going through the same struggles. Drew is such a handsome boy, and he seems to be so strong. You will be in my prayers, I truly hope that he is able to improve quickly and will be home with you soon.

We are all praying for Drew! His classmates miss him and even though they don't understand what it means to have heart surgery, they have that fabulous faith of children that God loves: God will make Drew better. We love you all and can't wait to see you and Drew!
God Bless You! Love, all your friends in the Blessed Bumblebees class at First Covenant Preschool.
