After months of planning to separate these brothers, and then a successful surgery, and ongoing recovery, Emmett and Owen were at long last TRULY reunited yesterday for their very first play date! It was the sweetest, happiest moment that they have experienced yet!
They played there hearts out until emmett just couldn't stay awake! He fell asleep while he was sitting up!
Luckily he had a comfortable backrest!
Owen stayed awake and played,
And eventually succeeded in waking up his brother. And not long after that OWEN fell asleep and Emmett returned the favor! Dave was able to be there for this epic moment. It was a good day all around!!
As for a quick update, Emmett went for a skin graft on Wednesday and has a cast on his foot to stabilize the area to prevent shearing/damage to the new skin. He is doing quite well with it. He is scheduled for possible g-tube placement in March.
Owen's incision is doing well, and he is back to his happy little self again.
The next step is to unite all 4 boys and conquer the world with cuteness and love. 😊
God continues to heal these boys, and we continue to count our many many blessings!
3 good things:
1.) Dave, Ethan, Liam and me getting a chance to go on a family walk yesterday.
2.) Receiving a meal from Dennis and Ruth Oldham. It was delicious!
3.) having nurses who go beyond typical 'nursing care!'
