Prayers Please

Urgent prayers are needed for my Uncle Steve (the one dressed as Santa in the pix with Luke).  He has lung cancer.  In the month since those pictures were taken his health has declined rapidly and he is having trouble breathing and sleeping (because of the breathing).  He and my aunt are en route to Houston to go to MD Anderson in hopes that they can treat the cancer and provide him some relief.  Because of his health, they had to abandon many of their Christmas job duties (He was the Santa at Bass Pro in Olathe, KS) which will be a big financial difficulty for them.  Please pray for quick healing and comfort for him and for the strength and comfort for my Aunt Carol as they walk this journey together.  In the weeks ahead please pray for their finances.  We love you Santa Steve!!  We know you will get your strength back and feel better soon!

Luke is home now!!

The doggie in the uniform

Luke is ready to catch the football!

Luke is wondering what this is all about...

Every costume needs a hole for your tail! :)

Here is our little Cowboy!

Luke came home with us on Friday!! Yay!! He is such a blessing!! We roomed in with him at the hospital on Thursday night as a trial run. We have been home 2 days now and have been having so much fun with him! Grandma and Grandpa Morris came to visit yesterday and helped us get settled. Mimi and Papa came to visit in the evening. Keli, Rocky, and Landon came today and Katie is on her way over. Other than the sleep deprivation - life couldn't be better!! :)

Knowing my husband could you really be surprised by Luke's Halloween costume? :) One of the nurses suggested that we go to Build-a-Bear to get a costume that would fit - so we did!! We got the doggie to go with the costume for Luke when he gets a little older. :) Isn't Luke the cutest thing? :)
