"It couldn't have gone better..."

....that's what the pediatric surgeon told us after he had finished Everett's surgery. Everett did awesome and it took the surgeon half of the time he had allotted because Everett was such a champ! We were told that the blockage was fixed and Everett has no other concerns. While they were doing the surgery, they were checking the rest of the digestive system to make sure all of the other parts were working okay. Fortunately, it was just the one blockage and it is all fixed now!

We were able to see and hold Everett before he went into surgery and we got to see him once he was out. We made Everett a sign for his bed that shared the meaning of his name:
"Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go." Joshua 1:9

Shane - "The Lord is gracious"
"The Lord is gracious and righteous; our God is full of compassion." Psalm 116:5

Everett is recovering well and just taking it easy. He will be under sedation for about 48 hours while his body recooperates from it all. Adam and I are so proud of him. We are continued to be BLESSED by God's faithfulness and protection over our family. Thank you for your support, prayers, and love!

Kangaroo Care with Everett - Adam did get a turn too!
