This month has been a whirlwind. I remember getting Jack's surgery date and thinking how far away it seemed. I was almost upset that we had to wait a whole month. It wasn't something that I was looking forward to having hanging over our heads for an entire month. We were hoping to get it over with quickly, but now that it's less than a week away I'm in shock that it's already time.

We met Jack's Neurosurgeon - Dr. Weprin's offices are in Children's Hospital near downtown Dallas. It was a bit of a trip getting down there, but I must say, it was pretty fun over all. The hospital is awesome. The pictures are of a massive miniature train display (is that an oxymoron?) ... and of Dr. Weprin's waitng room. We didn't overly love Dr. Weprin, but he's knowledgeable and I guess when it comes to someone dealing with your baby's brain, I'd rather have the best surgeon, not a buddy.

Our biggest change this month has been that we moved! We have been so blessed by good friends and awesome family that have allowed to stay with them., but I have to say it feels really good to have a place to really call home again. It hasn't been easy to pair down from a three bedroom house to an apartment, but we have really learned a lot about living simply over the past few months and are excited to not live a cluttered life. (don't judge the anti clutter statement with the "fullness" of Aaron's truck.)

We've unpacked the important boxes as you can see!

We've been able to spend some time with good friends. We have had fun catching up with those of you that have passed through town. One good thing about Dallas is that just about everyone seems to get here eventually.

Indee is now an inside dog again... Those of you that know and love our pooch will be gald to know that Indee is settling right back in to apartment life very well. She is also doing very well with Jack. When he cries or wimpers she goes to his side and stares at us with a concerned, "aren't your going to pick him up yet" look on her face.

Jack can almost roll over!! He's growing SOOOO fast. I'm glad that he has had this month to get so strong before his surgery. He can role from his back to his side and with lots of effort from his side to his tummy, but not all in one motion. Today he was even trying to go from his tummy back the other way. It won't be long until he is up and I'm having to chase him all day long.

Jack has experienced and loves the swimming pool. We have a very nice pool in our complex and it has become Jack's favorite past time. I love it because on pool days he naps really well!

Please pry for us Tuesday and Wednesday as we get ready and go through Jack's surgery. Thanks you all for your love and friendship! - Aaron, Kerre, Jack and Indee


  1. Yeah for home! We are praying for you this week, and that you will enjoy the sweet calm moments you have with Jack on Monday and Tuesday! We love you all! -ST

  2. He is so absolutely adorable! I'm praying for him and for you guys as you face this giant in your lives. God is in control. He is bigger than any of this. May His peace penetrate to your very bones! You guys are loved!

  3. Hey guys! We are praying for you & be sure to request music therapy if it's allowed while he's there. I know for a fact that Children's has several music therapists, so don't be afraid to ask. That's the only way you'll get it! Music therapy has been proven to create a quicker recovery. :)
