Love that handsome boy!

All this new information about the MOMS study being published has me really thinking. 

Would it have made a difference for us?
Do the risks outweigh the benefits?
How would it have effected Paisley?
Would a shunt have been necessary?
How would the distance have effected Rodney and I?
Surgery and follow-up without Dr. Moriarty?
...the list goes on and on.

We never even considered it. I read about it. I prayed about it. I didn't have the feeling that we must give it a try. I guess God was telling us. I'll leave it at that.

My head can't take much more either! But my heart is just fine. :) I knew in my heart the surgery was not for us. After we thought we were losing him the first time - I couldn't fathom taking that risk. I'm happy for the research that has been done - and praying that all my sweet friends can keep their perspective and the joy they have in their little ones. I honestly can't imagine a better life for me or my family than what we have right now. My Jet is a miracle and I thank God for him every day!
