CRAZY week!!

 What a CRAZY week we had!!  I’d prefer to never experience another week like January 7th-11th, 2013 again! I do realize that it could have been SO much worse, but it was a crazy-super fast moving-stressful week!  It started Monday when I got Bowen out of his bathtub I noticed a (I’d describe it like this) lump on his groin.  When he cried it got bigger.  Freaked this mama out!!  I was screaming at Tab to come look at “this thing I found on Bowen”!!  After some tears, I called Dicky & Sarah, (who were SO sweet) who let me drive over to their house at 8:45.  Dicky took one quick look and called it a specific hernia name.  So thankful that’s all it was!  (On the quick drive to their house I’d been praying the entire way that Dicky would be able to tell me what it was.  I didn’t want to leave there without an answer or that limbo feeling of still not knowing what it was.) Tuesday, Bowen had an appointment with our pediatrician and Wednesday we met with a pediatric surgeon who scheduled his surgery for the next day!  Super FAST!!  Thursday, Bowen had the surgery and did great!!  We had to stay overnight so they could observe how he handled the anesthesia from the surgery.  I was SO ready to leave that hospital the next morning!  So thankful everything went well!  We are SO blessed with great friends/family who watched our kiddos, offered to watch our kiddos, and were covering us in prayer!  Maybe 2013 didn’t start off like we’d expected, but we are so fortunate.  Here’s to some great things to come in 2013!

    Praise the Lord that Bowen is perfectly healthy! What a blessing! But poor Mama Erika…that is an awful week!
