My Logan boy

So, many people have been asking about our little Logan boy, so I thought I would give a quick update on how he is doing.  Fortunately, the Lord blessed me with an AMAZING toddler who is well adjusted and very adaptable to different situations.  I can tell that the Lord has prepared him to be the big brother of Joshua.

Logan visiting Joshua for the first time.  He was very concerned and kept pointing to him saying "Josh." 

Since we have been at the hospital, he has been staying with Tim's sister and their family.  Tim's mom has been in town and has taken over watching him during the day.  Each day, she brings him to the hospital and he gets to see "Josh" (as Logan calls him).  We spend a few minutes in the room with Joshua and then we go up to the third floor where they have an awesome playroom!  Logan has found some awesome toys there and really loves it.  After some time in the playroom, we eat lunch in the cafeteria.  He knows exactly how to get a tray and walks straight to where they keep the milk.  Once lunch is over, Tim's mom takes him back to the house to have a nap.

Tim's sister has 3 boys, two of which are close to Logan's age.  One day, they went to the dinosaur museum and got to play in the mud!  They enjoy playing together.
The playroom has tons of things to do!  Putting stuff in the basket and pushing it around is definitely a favorite.  This was taken the day of Joshua's surgery.
One of the hardest things for me and Tim through all of this is balancing our time between our two boys.  I think it is an adjustment any parent would have to go through with each new kid, but it is much harder when one is in the hospital.  We tend to question ourselves whether we are doing the right thing or handling it correctly.  All we can do, however, is the best we can and pray the Lord guides us to know what is best for each member of our family.

Joshua Kent Ipson was born December 1, 2012 with a very complicated combination of congenital heart defects. After 2 1/2 months of fighting for his life, he passed away on February 13, 2013. We invite you to share our experiences as we grieve his loss, rejoice in God's plan, & keep Joshua's message of hope alive.
