Happy Birthday!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAD!!! Ryan is 28 today! What better to celebrate his birthday than the boys in UK hats. My dad brought these to the hospital last night.
Reed is still doing great! We think that he will be home at the beginning of next week. He is on some antibiotics till Monday and that is all that is keeping him there.
Notice the sock on his right hand. Reed loves to pull his feeding tube out of his nose!
Braden's outfit says "I'm in Charge." He is until little Reed gets home.
I love when Reed makes this face. He is looking at me like who is this crazy lady holding me!
Please keep praying for Reed. We cannot wait for him to come home next week. I am going to the hospital today to learn all 'the rules' for when he comes home. Reed will be confined to home for 2-3 months but will have doctor visits every Monday and Thursday for the first 6 weeks then once a week for the next 6 weeks then moves to every other week.

Happy birthday to Ryan! Reed and Braden are so sweet. I love the pictures of them together. They look so happy when they are together. I know they have probably missed each other so much after months of being together:) We will pray for Reed to be home with Braden very soon!

God is so good! Abigail and Ansley would not leave their feeding tubes in either...no matter how they tried to secure them. Babies are a lot smarter than we think they are! ;) You remain in our prayers. May God continue to bless your precious family!
Love,
The Johns Family

I have been praying and thinking of you all so much....we were going into the hospital to be induced the day after you found out about the surgery....so I haven't been in touch. But I can't begin to tell you how thankful to God and so happy we are for little Reed. I know you are looking forward to getting home with him. I will be bringing you dinner soon and can't wait to see Reed and Braden together! Love, Brooke and Ryan
