August 20th is the set date for Isaiah's reversal ostomy surgery. He is scheduled for 11:30 tomorrow morning, and the plan is to put back together his intestines with the hope that his bowels will start reabsorbing nutrients again. Please pray that all goes well, and that 3-4 weeks from now, we can go home. This has been a very grueling journey for all of us. We are scared for this surgery, seeing we almost lost him during the last one. Plus, if his intestines don't start working again, we will need to remain here much longer. We need another miracle in his little body.

Thankfully, his spirits remain high. He is happy and playful, and continues to flirt with all the nurses telling them they are "pretty" or "beautiful". He is rather entertaining to watch in action. In a nutshell, we know we are definitely in trouble when he gets older. He already thinks he is a "ladies man".

Tonight we were able to spend time together as a family, reading devotions, and praying together. We definitely miss doing this regularly. Josiah is so sweet and gentle to his little brother. There is so much love between them. We are blessed to have 2 wonderful boys whom absolutely adore one another. We long for the day they can play together without a care in the world. Thank you for continuing to pray and lift us up. You are partners with us in this journey, and your strength allows us to continue putting one foot in front of the other.
