chattering and a jacob update!

Good morning blogland!  wow.. its 6:34 am.. and Im sweating already!  I thought I was supposed to be a princess.. and princess's surely dont sweat!!  Oh well, gonna be a scorcher here today.  perfect day for the beach.. but no beach for me today...I've got to go to work.   
speaking of work, these are all picks of my work office!  You didnt think I wouldnt decorate there for every holiday.. just like I do at home only on a much smaller scale did you?   
I have to have cute things to look at while I'm at work.. or Id only be thinking about going home all day! 
soo.. in jacob news.. ...
a little bird told me (that would be little tony..)  that he was doing good!  that his lung, (or lungs.. not sure about the little one) were inflating.  They were able to turn the ventilator up 50% and the ecmo machine down 50%.  and that they had the baby taking 50 breaths a minute.  Today they are going to test him with the ventilator up all the way and ecmo off!  then if all goes well he is scheduled for surgery for tomorrow morning to come off the ecmo and to close up from last weeks surgery.   There is some risk of bleeding as he has been on blood thinners while on ecmo, so we want to be praying for his blood to clot well..
I'm supposed to go away this weekend...I will be packed and ready to go, but I wont know for sure until right before its time to go if I'm going or not.  I need to make sure that Jacob is stable after his surgery first. 
keep praying
I so appreciate all of you!!!!!
I need to get ready for work.
 so see yas later.

Wonderful news. SO hope that you get to go. Because if you get to go that means that JAcob is doing well. SO happy that his little lungs are inflating.

What luck for you to have a white backdrop to place your sweet figures in. I of course would find a way to over do it. You have just enough and your felt creatures are amazing...So hot here as well. Claire has a tournament all weekend and I do hope we can survive the heat! Baby Pie news is good to hear. Lots of love and hugs his way. Blessings sweet friend...smiles..Renee
