Little Lucas

(cardiac intensive care unit)
My new little nephew, Lucas Bryant Walker Beard,

was born on Monday, February 22nd. Lucas has had two

surgeries thus far, and is awaiting the extensive 8 hour surgery

on his tiny heart. I was privileged to get to go visit him

yesterday. I wanted to scoop him up and love on him. It made me sad that

I couldn't, but I spoke to him, rubbed his little leg, and told him how much I

love him.

What a sweet little guy. He is fighting hard!

As I walked through the ICU, I was broken-hearted seeing so many sick children. It made me soooo thankful for the health of my children. I feel immensely blessed. I hope and pray Little Lucas will be able to make it through his upcoming procedures. We just already love him so much!

What a sweet little boy. So sorry he has had to endure so much in such a short amount of time! You have some lovely pictures of him with his parents. Hopefully you'll be able to get some even better ones with NO tubes soon!

Tell Gabi I said congratulations! And I hope that everything goes wonderful for their little baby boy! He is so cute! :)

I'm sorry to hear Gabi's baby is having such a hard time. Poor little guy, but he's adorable even with all the tubes. We will be praying for little Lucas and all of you, too. I hope he gets better soon.
