Fighting Peacefully

We are currently bedside in ICU at UCSF with our boy Joshua aka Joshie Pants. He is recovering from surgery due to complete AV canal and is doing great! He has touched so many lives leading up to this day and is blessing those around him even now. His smile is infectious and his fight is amazing! He even tried to remove his breathing tube via his right foot (the kid is flexible)! He just makes us smile and is such a joy. We can't wait to bring him home to play with his three older brothers. It's apparent there is much for this little man to do in his life and we are honored to have a front row seat. Happy 3/21!

I am hopeful that we will get to meet him sooner than later! I think him and Jacoby might share more than a middle name, amazing smiles and so many people who love them. Stay strong Joshua and family. Positivity and well thoughts to you all from up north!
