Sincerely Fro Me to You ~ First Time I Held Tate

This picture was taken on March 7, 2007 and it was the first time I held my son. His nurse Connie let me hold him and I was so happy that I could hardly contain myself. My parents were there with me but TBD was on his way to the hospital from work and he missed it. I was so happy that Connie took this picture and gave it to me right then and there. She was one of my favorite nurses of Tate's. I'm doing this "Fro me to you" on Tate because I found out yesterday that he is going to have his long awaited eye surgery next Monday 9/8 (my sister's birthday- Happy Mommy's mom). This is a very complicated surgery and they are expecting complications but 2 of his doctors will be there to handle any situations that may occur (ocularplastic surgeon for the iris and retinal surgeon for the retina). Please pray for my little boy, that the Lord has mercy on Tate and that there is NO cataract, hence saving his ocular lens.


This next picture was taken last Saturday when we all went to Kings Dominion for my nephew's birthday celebration. Tate loved the merry go round and I loved taking him on it...that's not completely true! I had just rode a roller coaster with Luke and my brain was a bit rattled and I felt very nauseous and going round and round didn't help!



Anyway, please be so kind and keep Tate in your prayers.

Wow, he is just so little! I can't believe that he was ever that small, even though I was there only hours after he was born, at only 1 pound and 14 ounces, God has protected him from so much! We love Tate with all our heart, I have loved him since the minute you found out you were pregnant! I am praying daily for God's mercy and protection upon Tate's eyes. Can't wait to see you later this evening!

It's truly amazing how big he is now! Can't wait to give him a big hug! We will pray for him and Reese as well.

I prayed just now for Tate.

I tend to lose connection to other Fro Me to You bloggers until Thursdays roll back around. Would you please leave me a comment so that I can follow the trail back here to get an update? I know that sounds rude and if I were a decent human being I would make a point to get back. But I am not the sharpest knife in the drawer and raising three kiddos of my own plus trying to convince my husband that I DON'T spend all of my time on the computer.... well, things slip by me. But I would DEARLY like to read an update on Tate.

May God bless your entire family and give you peace as you go through this next step with him. He is a gorgeous little boy.

TBM-
I hope & pray everything goes well with Tate's surgery. Sometimes I think it's worse for the parents than the actual child having the surgery. I know that's how I felt w/the boys 2 surgeries.
Anyways....keep the faith. All will go according to His plan.

Just spent some time browsing through your blog. Your babies are both adorable! Tate will certainly be in our prayers...for a successful surgery, a smooth recovery and the best outcome.

Thank you for sharing this with us. I love that we can lift you and sweet Tate up during his surgery. I've learned quickly that there are some awesome Godly people out there!

I will be praying for him and his sweet Mom next week.

Blessings!

Tate and Reese are always in my prayers. God has walked with your babies since He knew them, and He will be with them always. My pray is for perfect vision for your boy !! God is Good. Can't wait to see you and the babies this weekend.

Prayers for precious Tate.

Love the Merry Go Round photo. I have gotten more queasy with stuff like that in my old age. Nobody wants to see a momma yak! ;-)
