Mommy's got a boo boo

Your mother is an amazing woman. She's so thoughtful. All the time, thinking of others. She's very independent. That makes it even harder to see her in pain. Since we discovered we were expecting you guys, we found out Mommy had a boo boo in her throat. It's on what's called her thyroid. If you don't know what that is, Google it. Or whatever you kids will be doing in 5 years. Or better yet, ask me or Mommy. You can always come to us. She went to the doctor on Monday and she had to get a shot. Not fun but the shot will be important in telling how bad it is. The doctor sent her to another doctor on Tuesday. This one will keep an eye on things while you guys are growing to make sure the boo boo doesn't get too big. He took measurements of the boo boo and she had to get another shot so they can look at her blood.

She has what's called a "Nodule" on her thyroid. The doctor she saw Monday is a surgeon. He will take out the bad stuff when it's time. We're going to wait until after you guys are here before he takes anything out if we can. We're trying to keep you guys as healthy as possible. We're also doing what's best for Mommy. We need her healthy and happy. I will do whatever I have to, to make sure that happens. It's just hard sometimes listening to the doctors when they tell you the best thing to do is wait. We all want results now. It's our nature as people but patience is a virtue. Romans 8:25. We're on God's time.

We all go through things in life. Sickness, financial trouble, loss of loved ones, etc. Only one thing that I've found can solve your troubles. Faith in God and prayer. He brought me and Mommy together. He's blessed us with your brothers and you. He gave us both a family that believes in Him. We've made it this far and we'll make it as far as He wants us to go. It's His path that we're taking. In His time. I hope one day you will trust in Him as we do. I promise that I'll do my best to keep you on the right track. Follow Him. He knows where to lead you.

The doctors don't want to give Mommy medicine right now because it could affect you guys. They have to be careful to make sure that these medicines won't hurt you. So as long as the "nodule" isn't too bad, we'll get Mommy all fixed up once you guys are here. If it is worse than what we believe it is, we'll go ahead and get her fixed up with you guys still in her belly. Either way, I trust God will protect you and Mommy. 2 Corinthians 5:7.

I'll keep writing these posts to you guys so you will know all of the highs and all of the lows we go through on the path to bringing you into the world. It won't always be fun and games. It won't always be sad either. I promise, though, it'll be from the heart. Some of our greatest challenges teach us the greatest lessons and often draw us closer to God. See you soon at the next ultrasound. You could always wave to Daddy if you want. That would be cool. Oh and if you hear Mommy giving Daddy too much grief, feel free to kick her. Much love, Daddy.


  1. What a touching post, and great lessons for all of us. We ARE too impatient most of the time. Love the last bit, though. Made me giggle :) I hope your wife gets through this quickly and easily!
