Num Num Num

Knowing Ivor would not be able to eat after midnight we cut him loose yesterday and let him eat till he looked like a pumpkin. On the way up to Denver he chomped on grapes, chewed on fruit leather, downed a banana, and slid into Ruby Tuesdays where he had some Mac n' Cheese, mashed potatoes (which he did not like) and some pasta salad.

As I lay here, I dread the morning. Ivor wakes every day, bright and early. He snuggles for about 10 minutes, and then he starts signing, "Eat!". He is of course placed in his high chair where he munches away till his little heart is content. This morning he will be able to drink juice till we take him to Children's at 10:00. His operations will begin at 12:15. His surgery is scheduled for 6.5 hours. Praying he is distracted enough to not get too worried about eating.

When we travelled to China to get our sweet boys, we were accompanied by some amazing couples. We shared many moments together and became quite close. Jillian, one of the mommies and her darling daughter, Haddie, are coming today to lend their support. It will be a great distraction and we are all looking forward to seeing them again.

Thanks so much for all your prayers for our little warrior. (Ivor means Archer Warrior for those of you who don't know) and he will be a warrior today with Jesus by his side.
