calm after the storm: a week of photos

The Wilson family has been breathing a collective sigh of ‘relief’ after two weeks of doctor’s offices and hospitals.

Relief because Abbey is going to be okay, more than okay – she will be perfect.

Yes, Abbey’s thyroid is defective.

Yes, this is a massively serious condition.

Yes, Abbey will require blood tests every two weeks.

Yes, Abbey will be visiting our specialist in Memphis every four weeks.

Yes, Abbey will have to take medication every day – probably for the rest of her life.

But, she is going to grow up and mature just like any girl, any girl with a fully functioning thyroid.

There are many evidences of God’s grace in all this, reflections that will find their way onto this blog in due time.

. . . . . . .

Until then, we will make up for a weekend of blog silence with some photos from the last week(ish):


Abbey is not sucking her thumb in this photo – she doesn’t even know she has thumbs



Hungry Abbey, but that’s the wrong chest baby.


Una-daddy with his Una-baby


Abbey at her 2 week check up – everything looked great.  8 lbs. 15 ounces and a pair of chicken arms.


Abbey’s first outing to Picasso’s Pizza – she was riveted.


Abbey in a bag – that’s what we call her sleep gowns (they’re our favorite)
