day of great news!

Two serious pieces of great news:

  • Ben and Julie Dockery’s very own Abby
  • Beth’s dad’s heart.

Two fun bits of Abbey news.

  • Milk drunk hiccups
  • Abbey snoring

. . . . . . .

Huge congratulations to Ben and Julie Dockery, who welcomed their own beautiful little Abigail (Abigail Katherine Dockery) into the world today.

The stats: 7 pounds, 8 ounces. 19 inches. Healthy mama.

Abbey has a brand new Abbie to hang out with when we visit Louisville.

Show some love by leaving a comment on their blog: What Is Up Doc

. . . . . . .

Beth’s mom called this afternoon and gave us some great news about Papa K’s heart.

This morning they sent a camera into his heart and discovered that, though his heart is not in perfect condition, it looks to be in pretty good shape.

With this key piece of information, here is what the doctors think happened:

Papa K developed some kind of infection – they don’t know what it is exactly.  This infection caused the heart attack and lingered for a week, causing a high fever.

Now that the fever is breaking, the infection is improving and, with his heart in pretty good condition, they will start to gradually transition Papa K off of sedatives and assisted breathing.

Here is the bottom line – the doctors think that Papa K will be awake and healthy enough to go home this next Monday (which is amazing).

It looks like he will be facing heart bypass surgery in a month or so, which he won’t be happy about, but it is much better than the alternative.

There were times when we were anxious, very anxious (and we are not promised to be out of the woods yet), but this news was really thrilling.

We are so happy that Papa K is doing well.

We don’t know when we will get to go see him – but we know that it will be as soon as we possibly can!

Please, keep praying for Papa K as he is transitioned off of the medication, breathing assistance, and out of the hospital and into his home.  Pray that Papa K would recover and grow strong for his heart bypass surgery.

Babies, aside from doctor visits and major life milestones, don’t really have any big news – unless you are parents.

Here are a couple of ‘newsclips’ from the Wilson household documenting late breaking ‘news’ from the life of Abbey Wilson.

viewer warning: the following videos contain a cute baby doing cute things.

Abbey gets ‘milk drunk’ and a little bit silly.

Abbey takes a nap and makes us laugh hard.

Stay tuned for more late breaking news!
