"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."

We have been so blessed the past few days with emotional and financial support from family, friends and even complete strangers. We were surprised by a donation to the Care4Conway fund from friends of a friend, Jim and Pam Boehm, on Saturday night and then on Sunday we spent the day with family who threw a party in Connie's honor. Aunt Sam, Uncle Mike and Aunt Mary, Grandpa Jim, Aunt Carole and Grandpa Gil-your gifts are so appreciated. Even my parents have gone overboard pampering us and the kids lately. Mookie and I got to enjoy a pedicure thanks to my mom on Monday. Grandma Marybelle even surprised us with a quick visit to see Connie before he heads out of town! Also on Sunday, Connie got some pictures taken by a local photographer who has a passion for kids with "special needs". She was kind enough to come out to the club to take some pics of him on the course and in the pool. Thank you everyone for your support! Your prayers especially mean the world to us.

Oh my gosh, Darcie's pics of Connie are beautiful! She captured the essence of a little boy just bursting with happiness and life! Outstanding!

I love the pics they look great. I am so happy you were able to have those done. We will be saying many many prayers for all of you and for the docs and nurses. I will pray for a speedy recovery and return trip home as well.

God Bless you all and Heart Hugs

I think I said this before, but Connie is so photogenic. He could be a model! Ha ha ha...

Thinking of you as you get ready for the big day(s) in Michigan. Let me know if you need anything.

Connie is such a handsome little boy...great pics.
Our prayers our with your family.

I'm sure you're already aware of this, but U of M hospital (pediatrics) is rated as one of the best in the country, so he's in good hands.
