Evan From Heaven and Big Brother Nate



































I haven't updated with pics of Evan from Heaven since the first few weeks. He is the sweetest baby. Soooo mellow and sweet, but he's been rolling over since week 6. He's now about 3 1/2 months old and he is a wonder. Makes eye contact with you and you are HIS! Look at that hair! It will not stay down.

Big brother Nate is just an exact replica of my brother when he was 2. I think my parents feel like they've gone back in the past - the resemblance is so eerie.

Yesterday's news on Michael is that he has AML which is the fast growing leukemia. We find out today when he'll be home (they've been living in North Carolina for a year but he wants to be home with family for this - they were moving back home soon anyways). He had been feeling kind of sickly the last couple weeks and had some bleeding of his gums but like a guy, just kind of blew it off. His wife Nicole and the kids were here in Oregon for a visit and Michael felt so horrible on Sunday he went to the ER. A bit later they say "you have leukemia, we're admitting you." Can you imagine? Hopefully he'll be on a flight home today and then he'll go through chemo starting in the next day or two and then he'll be in isolation at the hospital for several (5?) weeks and then another round of chemo. It's going to be a long haul. Please keep him in your prayers.

Oh my goodness, he's so beautiful!! Well, both of them are! How is Evan's heart?

I'm definitely keeping Michael and his family in my prayers.

Hugs.

His heart seems to be of little concern at this point. He is thriving - doing great! He is really the easiest baby (says my mom - she's been babysitting often lately). Seems like they've all settled in well and it is such a relief to me to know they are so happy.
