Uneventful Day.......and Eventful Day


These are the days that we like along with a little progress! MRI is scheduled for 11am tomorrow morning. Please pray that everything turns out fine and that all we need is time for our baby to return to normal. We HAVE time! Otherwise, she is tolerating 10 cc's per hour feeds and all she needs is tylenol to stay somewhat comfortable. AMAZING!!!
Ok, now for the big news around Mott today. Tommy Shomaker, I'm sure, had one of the best days of his life. If you just happened to watch our Detroit Tigers play this evening, you saw Brandon Inge sporting a new "tattoo". Well, he made a special trip to Mott today to see Tommy because the last time he was here at the hospital, Tommy got his angel heart and was unable to see him. Brandon somehow heard that story and made a special visit for him! Anyway, during his visit with Tom, Brandon asked to get HIS autograph. He had Tommy sign his arm so that when he was up to bat, everyone watching would see it. So cool, I KNOW!!! Anyway, Brandon arranged to have it announced to everyone explaining his new "ink". Well, Brandon hit a home run tonight. Here is the link so that you can see this emotional and incredible moment. http://www.bus.umich.edu/Video/Play/?file=other/IngeHomer1&height=513&vol=200
That one was for you Tommy! Tommy probably has perma-grin while sleeping tonight! Love you buddy and we are so happy for you!
I will update when we here results of the MRI tomorrow. Praying..........
Love, Suzie

That is awesome! I know that had to be the coolest thing ever (aside from getting his heart) to that special little guy! Boys love their ball! My daddy, Scott and Wyatt are going to Atlanta this weekend to see the Braves play the Red Sox (Wyatt is pulling for Boston...funny enough!). This will be his first major league game so he is thrilled to say the least!
We are so thankful for these precious baby steps!!! Go Lindsay girl!
Love you~ Rebecca

I have a picture of Inge with the Tommy "tattoo" online if you are interested in posting the picture or sharing it with the Tommy's family. I don't know what your e-mail address is, but you can email me at wolfe.lindsey@gmail.com and I'd love to send it your way! Glad Lindsay is doing well - anyone with a cool name like that is a special and wonderful person! :-)

Awww Suzie thank you so much for telling us about Tommy, thats so cool. And you know the prayer does NOT stop here for The Princess-the MRI will be fine and before you know it Lindsay will be chasing them boys all over the place. Heart hugs and smooches...The Peebles ^i^

Yes Elaine, not only do we have TV, but we have internet access as well :-) I didn't pee my pants, but I did cry like a baby when I read it. I KNEW there was a reason why I loved Brandon Inge. I mean besides the fact that he's an incredible athlete and cute as a button! :-) What a great story and what a great guy.

Even 4 hours away from K-zoo, I still manage to keep tabs on the princess. Praying for the results of the MRI this morning.

Steve, Aimee and the entire Gillespie Clan (all 25 people and 7 dogs!)

Sending prayers for sweet Lindsay, that her MRI comes back normal. She is making such great strides, and is one strong baby girl! Loved the story of Tommy, and I know he is one happy little boy. He is a "Home Run" also, with the great progress he is making. Blessings to all these special children, and their wonderful parents!
Hugs,
