Home again

We're home! Had a wonderful time in the CO mountains. This is us on the day of Jacob's surgery - everyone close to him near and far wore "Team Bottone" T-shirts. Jacob did very well - his kidney is working wonderfully and he seems to have more energy. The Dr. said his Mom gave him a "V-8 kidney"! He did so well that he went home in 6 days - and Drs. had expected him to be in hospital for 2 weeks. God has certainly been taking care of our little guy! You can read more about Jacob and his surgery on his website: http://www.weemightyman.net/

I missed having a computer to visit all of you. I was able to borrow a laptop a couple of times. I look forward to visiting all of you soon.


I'll share more pictures of our time in the mountains later. Here is one photo taken in Rocky Mountain National Park.

Blessings to all of you - and thanks for your prayers and your comments.
