My Sweet Boy!

We just got back seeing Chase for the first time following his surgery. We could only stay for about 5 minutes as they need another 2 hours to continue to get him settled and get his pain under control. I can't wait to spend time by his side soon!

I took some pictures today and I'm posting them in a very specific order. The first one is from far away, then a close-up followed by a picture that shows his battle wounds from today's surgery. You may not want to scroll down to see all the pics... Consider yourself warned!

Here he is resting comfortably in his new crib in bed 4:

Scroll down only if you want to!

This is a close-up of his sweet face. You can see how swollen he is feom the fluids. We've been told he's going to have "the mother of all migraines" as the upper half of his body adjusts to the changes in his blood pressure.

This last one is the hardest to look at. Be warned!

Here he is with most of his lines and tubes showing. He's heavily medicated and isn't in pain, praise God!

We'll spend some time with him later tonight and get the good scoop from the nurses (the ones who are REALLY in the know!).

Thank you so much for your prayers for our little Rock Star today. God definitely has had His hand on Chase and has answered the prayers of His people!!!

  1. Oh wow, those pictures are hard to look at, but knowing the surgery was such a success makes it much easier. He is beautiful, even with all those nasty tubes and wires. I can't wait for you to spend more time with him. Praying these next couple hours fly by!!

  2. I'm so glad this day is over for you. These pics are heart wrenching. It sounds like the worst is over now so hang in. You're almost there! Thanks for keeping us updated - it helps so much and you've done such a good job!

  3. I'm so glad he's doing so well! Aly was swollen like that too right after her surgery. She had her worst headaches on day 2 and then it just got better from there. So glad the surgeon was able to get all of that done!! What a relief that today is over. :)

  4. I am so glad that things went well in surgery today! That is such an answer to prayer. Will still be praying for the little man and for yall, too!
