Mush-Pot - Part II

We were visited by two special friends today.

Ricky brought us lunch. He has been a great friend to us and to our girls for several years now. Here is his picture with the girls.

Mrs. Syble brought the girls matching dresses (which they will wear on this Sunday). Mrs. Syble is like a third grandmother to our girls and they love her tons!

On another totally different note, it's interesting getting the mail these days. We are starting to receive notices from Blue Cross telling us all they have paid out to USA Children's and Women's Hospital, UAB and the doctors involved in Victoria's surgery. It's a little overwhelming to see the large dollar amounts that have accumulated during Victoria's illness. When you are in a medical crisis there isn't a lot of time to think about how much things cost, like a jet ride to UAB, for your baby. You just know her life depends on it and you agree to whatever the doctors say needs to be done. We are truly blessed to have insurance with Blue Cross and Blue Shield. We know that many parents who go through similar circumstances may not have that blessing. We have also been blessed by the Rileigh & Raylee "Angel Ride" Foundation. This foundation provides financial support for families who have to travel and stay out of town to receive medical care for their child. We have also been blessed by numerous family members and friends. We praise the Lord for His awesome provision!

Last but not least, I end this post with two video clips. Watch them in order. The second video is a continuation of the first one. I believe Elyssa will bring a smile to your face! She did mine!

Those videos sure gave me a laugh! Honey, you could win the grand prize on America's Funniest Home Videos with some of Elyssa's moments. I love the corn video too. Crack me up! And I have to say, baby Victoria is looking healthier and cuter each time I see new pictures of her. Godspeed on the 6 weeks..and the doctors visits. My prayers are definitely with you.
