We just talked to our nurse, she said Teagan is still doing wonderful! she said the surgeons made their rounds early this morning and are very please with Teagan's progress. What a comfort to us. They said they are going to try to situate him so they can put the phone to his ear so we can talk to him a little while we are unable to make it down. During this time we have had a lot of people ask how we are making it through this so positively. While having an incredible wife is a huge strength, there is no way we make it through this without the gospel of Jesus Christ. We know that through the Atonement of Jesus Christ all mankind may be saved and that all little children who have not arrived at the age of accountability are saved in the kingdom of God. We have also drawn much strength from the Book of Mormon. The 1st day we went to Primary's was a hard day. We had no idea what Teagan's prognosis was or how long he would live. That night we turned to 3 Nephi 17 read it together, it is a touching account of the Savior of the world blessing children and healing those with physical disabilities. It brought such comfort to our hearts to know that these little children are safe in the arms of Christ and that he loves them enough to weep at the thought of what they will be called to go through in this life. Finally there is no way we make it without all of the prayers and kind acts of our friends and family. We feel so indebted to everyone who has donated their time and resources to helping ease our burden, it truly has been a witness of what Elder Holland called The Ministry of Angels. We only hope to be able to repay each of you in some way in the future. We love all of you!
