Hey guys, Beckett here. I just wanted to take a moment and thank you all for your thoughts and prayers for me, especially this last week. Yeah, I know I’ve been through much worse, but having this tube put in and then taken out to then just be put back in again is tiring…and to be quite honest, it’s not very comfortable. But I’ve beaten off a few infections this past week and am being told that the Doctors really do think I’m ready to have this tube taken out later this afternoon once and for all.

It’ll be good to hear my voice again. I know it’s cute because people always gather around when I use it, especially my parents.

My mother hasn’t left my side since I was born, and for that I will always be so thankful. Daddy has to leave here-n-there, but I know it’s for the good of his family he is trying so hard to take care of. They aren’t perfect, but I definitely know they love me!

I cannot wait to meet you all. Thanks for caring so much for me, even though many of you haven’t ever even met me. And thank you for encouraging my parents. I can tell when they are renewed from a lil message they’ve read, or an unexpected visitor stopping by just to hug and encourage them. They always come back so reenergized.

And to my family, grandmas/grandpas, cousins, aunts/uncles, great grandparents, extended family….a big fat thank you! It’s amazing how much you care and love me as if I was your actual son.

And lastly to the doctors and nurses who look after me. To be quite honest, I wouldn’t still be here without your wisdom, skill, and consistent care. Thank you for helping me out when my body just wasn’t able to do it on its own.

And to my God. I’ve been told that there have been moments when the skilled physicians weren’t able to help me much more and you would step in and save the day. Thank you for using my lil heart condition to display your power and love for not only me, but for all who love and care for me.

I will grow up trained to follow the guidance of your words found in scripture. I know my parents will train me in the way I should go, and I will not depart from it. Please use my life to share your love and your grace to all I meet.

Again, I hope to meet you all soon. I’m on my way out of here…I just know it!

Beckett Intubated (again)

    Thank you for your note to all of us out here in the cyber world, little Beckett! Oh, and for your picture too!. You are such a handsome young man – and you are looking so much better. We are just thanking God for every remembrance of you and for your young life. You have an awesome mom and dad who love you more than you will ever be able to totally understand and they love God a lot, too – and it shows. Keep hanging in there! You are one blessed, brave and strong little dude! Much love…
