"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

Yes, the goat did take a bite of her skirt

Happy baby

Our little tinkerer


Do you like the new background? I thought it was a nice touch since we're having the All-Star Game here in StL next week!

Connie got his haircut yesterday and is now very handsome again! He cried the whole time:( Afterward, Laurie gave him some Smarties so maybe he'll associate getting candy with going there and remember that next time.

We have experienced first hand the power of prayer and so I ask you all to join us in praying for Ella, a fellow L-TGAer who will be undergoing her Double Switch (actually a Rastelli-Senning--the same exact thing Connie had) next Wednesday, 7/15 at 8:30am. She is three years old and a lot more aware than Conway was when he had his. She will be at Mott and her surgeon is Dr. Bove. Please ask God to guide the medical staff and give comfort to her parents and five siblings during these next few weeks. Drop by her carepage at www.carepages.com and "visit" carepage name: EllaMallon and leave a message of support for her family. As you can imagine, they are getting quite anxious. The messages we used to get literally carried us during those trying times so just know that words on a page do mean a lot, even to strangers.

Hope the chip eating & whining is just age appropriate behavior...
Thanks for the update!

Connie is looking more and more like a little man! So handsome.
I will add little Ella to my prayer list. We continue to pray for Connie's continued improvement.
