Be Praying!

Just a quick note to say "BE PRAYING!" We are heading back down to UCLA for Lincoln to undergo another heart biopsy. This is a scheduled appointment but it's never easy seeing Lincoln having to be intubated and wheeled back to surgery. The procedure is scheduled for tomorrow (Mon) morning and will last a couple of hours. If all goes smoothly, he will be discharged tomorrow afternoon. Please pray that the surgery goes well and that there is no evidence of rejection! Also be praying for Josh as he has had a bad bout of tonsillitis since last Monday and hasn't been able to be around Lincoln for a week....and for Kristen who is very tired from having to pull double duty taking care of Lincoln. A few positives....this week Lincoln started crawling for the first time. Lincoln also pulled his NG tube out by accident and we decided to just keep it out and see what happens. Well, Lincoln has been doing excellent without it, eating almost everything he is required to and also doing very well taking his medication by mouth! We will update you with pictures when we return! Thank you all for your prayers and support...we love you all! J&K

What a praise that Lincoln is doing so well without his NG tube!!! And so glad to hear he figured out that whole crawling thing--bittersweet, I'm sure. We will definitely be praying for you three tonight and tomorrow. Can't wait to hear the good report.

Love you guys,
Michelle
