I'm in Birmingham typing this from the waiting room at UAB. Caroline is out of surgery and in the pediatric intensive care unit recovering.
The surgery went well, as expected.
We've had an opportunity to visit briefly with her and meet and speak to the cardiologist, and now Katie and Scott are spending more quality time with Caroline.

They intend to update their own blog - link below - when they finish visiting with Caroline.


Just wanted to update everyone. Thanks for your phone calls and prayers.

The time has come

for Caroline's surgery. Little bit will have her heart surgery on Tuesday. Ashley & I are headed up to Hartselle on Monday morning so we can be with our family and help out however we can. It is expected to be a five hour surgery. Katie, Scott and Caroline are supposed to be in Birmingham at noon on Monday to check in. They have an amazing faith and fully trust that the Lord is going to take care of their precious girl. I know He is, and they are doing all they can to take the best possible care of her. Katie told Caroline on Wednesday that next week her heart is going to be fixed :)!! It's amazing. You can read more about the Braddocks story on Katie's blog. Please pray! Thanks!!

Caleb Lately

Caleb has been walking behind his push toys lately. He walks and then looks at us to be sure we are watching and waits on us to cheer for him :). He's so proud of himself! He has started standing alone- only 15-30 seconds or so, but I was able to snap a picture...
His other favorite is a CORD! Man, this kid loves a cord! I know it might not be the best idea, but I just give them to him anyway and he's got four or five scattered throughout the house. A cord keeps him entertained better than anything else right now :).

Kenny Chesney

We just got back in town from Tallahassee because we went to see Kenny Chesney last night. You know we really enjoyed Lee Greenwood last month so you can only imagine how much we enjoyed Kenny Chesney!! It was GREAT! No wonder that man has been voted entertainer of the year so many times!! Thank you, thank you to Wes's Uncle Ryan & Aunt Debbie for a great night and Nana and Granny for taking such good care of Caleb!

Sloane is Here!

Sloane arrived this afternoon at 5:30pm. - 6 lbs. 14 oz. She is ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL with a head full of dark hair! We think she looks like her sweet mom. Marla took lots of pictures and I am sure she will post on Erika's blog soon, but here are a few...

Looks like precious Sloane Chancy will make her debut tomorrow! We are SO EXCITED and can't wait to meet her! Erika checked into the hospital tonight and they have started the induction. She is (of course) very anxious and would really appreciate your prayers! :) Sloane is one lucky little baby to have those two as her parents!! I can't wait to meet her!!
