Doing Well

Della's surgery went well yesterday and the Dr. ended up just taking her adenoids because her tonsils looked good. So that means an easier recovery for her. Thank you to all who prayed and fasted on our behalf. It brought us a lot of comfort and we felt confident that we were doing the right thing. Here is a picture of her this morning enjoying her first solid food in 24 hours. Her face is a little swollen but she should be back to normal in about 2 weeks.

Here is a little Archer picture for your enjoyment. He is sitting on the couch watching cartoons with Juan (new imaginary friend who made his appearance last Thursday), Chico (old-man imaginary friend) and the monster that he drew. Archer and Chico have had some adventures lately. We were waiting to get Della's x-rays done last week and the waiting room was completely full. Archer thought this would be a good time to inform us that Chico was wearing "clear pants." Hmmmmm. Then on Sunday Archer told us that Juan would be going with us to church however Chico would not because "he is a rascal." Just before church started Archer turned to his nursery leader and informed her that "Church is really really long." He also interrupted the Sister Missionary to inform her that her FHE lesson was "really really long." When do they learn tact? Hopefully soon.

I love that Archer uses sayings that Chad uses. With the Rascal thing. I am so glad - so glad that things went better then expected with Della.

Tact? Ha-never! Well, we're still waiting, at least...

Glad to hear that Della is doing well. =)

We are so glad to hear that Della is doing ok!! I was praying for her yesterday and hoping for a fast recovery. Archer needs to stop having Mexican Imaginary Friends!! Hee Hee!!! As for tact? Sorry Caitlin, but they don't get that until they are about 20 years old. Well...lets think about Rocky and Chad now...maybe when they turn 32! :)

I am crying with laughter over the "clear pants"!!! Maybe Chico's underwear were opaque. Why are all of Archer's friends hispanic?
