One of Waylon's most difficult times is when we get home from work and the babysitters. He is the whiniest thing ever. I can hardly do anything to cheer him up. So, yesterday as I was changing out of my work clothes to start dinner as he was whining at my feet I asked him to put my shirt in the laundry basket. He asked, "Wear it?" instead. I hesitated but then thought if that would cheer him up for 5 minutes why not. Well, he wanted my socks I wore with my boots all day and my boots as well. He didn't make it a step in the boots. The socks ... just gross, but it was worth the laugh.
Here he is. I love his face here. He was reluctant for me to take pictures as he should be, so I had to hurry up and get them as fast as I could. If he had longer hair he would make one pretty girl with those blue eyes and extremely long eyelashes. YES, he WILL hate me for this one day and I DO plan on using it if I need to ; )!
I just wanted to point out that I didn't even need to pick up the house before I took these pictures. My house has been clean lately and it is all because of me. Thank goodness for some nesting spurts lately! It feels so good to come home to a clean house every night even if it is destroyed 2 seconds later.
We didn't show or tell daddy, but daddy would be happy to know that his little boy soon wanted his mommy's shirt off and wasn't too pleased with the whole ordeal, but he asked for it! He quickly headed to the garage to play on his dad's mower in true boy style. He even has a few new big bruises. I guess he needed to feel a bit manly again.

Surgery tomorrow morning. Dale and I are heading out tonight. This is to fuse his vertebra in his neck for more stability and less risk of anymore harm being done to his spinal cord. Hopefully this will be the 1st huge step in getting him literally back on his feet even if it takes a year or more. The goal is a week of recovery at the same NTICU he has been at for over a month and then to a rehab close to home to get him completely off the vent. Once he gets over that hump the long road and hard fight to recovery starts. Please pray for Bill tomorrow and the whole family. Even this surgery is a HUGE risk. I'll update soon with the results.
Our home church, which we haven't been back to since all of this started because of our weekend travels is calling off the regular Wednesday night AWANA and business meetings to have a special prayer meeting for Bill and all of us. That really touches our hearts and means the world to us. Even though we can't be there with them they continue to be here for us. Thanks again for those of you that have been beside us with your thoughts, cards, and prayers. You all are carrying all of us. If you would like to read more and start praying along with us you can read posts labeled "Bill". You can find that in the right hand side of the blog. We can never have enough prayer.
