We are asking that you pray for Hudson.
Last Thursday while at dinner, I noticed a bump under his shirt on the left side of his chest. I compared it to the other side and his top rib bone was sticking out.
Friday, we went to the doctor to get it checked out. She thought it was 2 bones fused together, so she sent us to get xrays. After waiting all day for the results, we found out that his bones looked great....in doctors terms, no tumor in the bone and they were not fused together. So, she told us to watch it for 4-6 weeks to see if it grows. If it does, we will do a CAT scan.
Today, Paul talked with our doctor again and asked for best and worst case scenario...best case- fatty tissue under his rib bone making it push out, in which it will dissolve in the next 4-6 weeks. worst case- a cancerous tumor.
She really feels it is fatty tissue since there weren't any dark spots on the xray. She is holding off on the CAT scan so Hudson isn't exposed unnecessary radiation.
Hudson is fine and doesn't notice anything...it doesn't hurt him.
Please pray this is just fatty tissue that goes away and pray for our family as we are waiting the 4 weeks to see if there are any changes.

Thank you for your thoughts and prayers during this crazy time in our lives,
Amanda & Paul
We will keep everyone updated as we know more information.

Beaver's Bend Trip

A few weeks ago, we took a trip with most of our family to Beaver's Bend, Oklahoma. We had about 14 from East Texas and 6 of us from here. Ryan and Jen didn't make it this year....Miles was still a little small to make it this year....We really missed you guys!!
We had 2 super nice cabins with the adults (6 people) in one and us kids (14 people) in another. Our parents were nice enough to give us kids the bigger cabin which was AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL!!!! Paul and I lucked out (and by lucked out I mean we pick for ourselves) with the King Suite downstairs. It had a bathroom that looked like it came from Extreme Home Makeover. The shower itself was truly amazing....I was offering date nights for spouses in our bathroom, but I didn't have any takers.
The rain held off long enough for us to get out on the lake Sunday. Lesa was wonderful to work her magic to get us on a really nice, new boat for the day. Once out on the lake, we met up with our cousins on the wave runners. Hudson's favorite part was definitely the wave runners...I think he would have driven one by himself if we would have let him!! Well, enough of me, here are the pics (in random order) from our weekend!!

Girls, I have so much fun with you and I can't wait to do it again. I know with school starting back up soon, it will be hard, but I want to make it a point to get in our play time so we can have our girl time!! Thank you all for your friendships, I truly cherish you!!
