No Surgery Tonight - Saturday

The doctors have decided to postpone the surgery till Monday. They are waiting for some more test results to get back so that they can maybe try to combine surgeries and fix a couple things at once. At this point the doctors feel he is stable enough to make it to Monday where they will be able to address more of the problems at once. The surgeries planned for Monday are critical. Please continue to pray for strength for Isaiah. That he'll remain stable till Monday and fight through his surgery.

Thank you all for your continued prayers and thoughts. We are reading them all when we get the chance.

Chris and Joy


  1. Joy, this is Kerry (Hendricks) High (I married Kevin)-from Calvary Church-Souderton/YASM. I was looking at "baby Isaih pictures" on Mike Landis' photography blog then hopped onto your blog to learn more. when I saw your maiden name and looked at your picture, I made the connection. Please know we are praying for Isaiah, as well as you and Chris (and Josiah too). Kevin and I have been down a different yet similar journey with our first son Ryan 3 yrs ago. God is faithful through all things. We love you, we're here for you, we'll be interceding for your family, and we'll help spread the prayer web. thank you for sharing Isaiah and his story - he is most precious. Psalm 121

Congratulations on the birth of your beautiful, beautiful son Isaiah. I am continuing to pray for you and your family, and especially Isaiah, several times each day. I am thankful that you have this time with him and I pray that he will grow stronger each day. I will especially be thinking of you tomorrow as he has his surgery.
