More Gifts

We arrived in Toronto safe and sound! What a gorgeous day. Today we received so many good things:

1) Genetics Appt- They physically examined Jacob and took a family history to determine if the sagittal synostosis is an isolated incident or part of a syndrome. They gave Jacob a clean bill of health and assured us that it is isolated and not part of a syndrome. :) 
Despite really needing a nap Jacob was the biggest flirt! The doctor had to apologize that she was laughing so much since Jacob was giving her smiles, kicks, and giggles. He was really putting on the charm.

2) Pack and Play- We forgot to pack this for Jacob to sleep in tonight! I was just imagining Jacob rolling around on the floor or off of one of the hotel beds. We were so relieved when the hotel was able to provide us with one! Phew!

3) Bouncy Bed- James was bouncing Jacob all evening on the bed. Jacob was over the moon with very loud giggles. Our bed doesn't bounce as well at home!

4) Sleep- Little man is fast asleep at the moment in his borrowed pack and play. He had a good feed and is right on usual schedule at the moment. We are so lucky to have such a good sleeper. All that hard work training him on this schedule is paying off!

James and I are going to relax now and prepare for tomorrow. Very hard to believe the surgery is only a few hours away at this point. Feeling numb at the moment which is a good thing.

We are positively overwhelmed with everyone's emails, comments, and texts. They mean so much! Thank you again!

See you in the morning...


  1. Glad you made it safe and sound! And numb is okay, nothing wrong with that! It means you have a level head on your shoulders, are practical, realistic, and ready to face another hurdle in this game called life! Keep your eye on the prize (Jacob!) and keep right on doing what you're are an inspiration and love you from the bottom of my heart! Xo

  2. Hope you sleep well. You have so many people behind you guys. Lots of positive energy and prayers coming your Way!!

  3. Jacob is more than welcome to come and bounce on our bed with Magdusia! We don't have the memory foam like you guys do, so the froggy Prince can really get some good height! Your gratitude for daily gifts big and small is in itself a gift, and as always, and inspiration to us all!

  4. Andrew said a special prayer tonight for his friend Jacob. We are all thinking and praying for you guys. Stay strong tomorrow!

  5. Sleep well! I'll be thinking of you. Mirko sends some kisses and purrs your way :)

  6. You've been in our minds and hearts leading up to tomorrow's surgery. The anticipation is almost over and that is the worst part. You guys are so strong and will get through this without a doubt. We love you and are thinking about you. My group is praying for you so please know there are seven more lovely people saying special prayers for Jacob and you tonight, tomorrow, and in the days ahead. Much love.

  7. my thoughts and prayers will be with you guys all day.
