Baby Braden Petska

Monday


Hello all,
We are taking big, deep breaths as the surgery date nears. We know he will be in excellent hands, but it will so difficult to "let go" of him again. Please continue to keep us in your prayers as we prepare our brave, little man for another "meeting" with Dr. Tweddle.

We attached a photo collage of Braden. We had a photographer (Kim Youra) come over on Saturday to capture some great moments of Braden. Since he can't quite decide if he's a Packer or Bears fan yet, we decided to play it safe and put him in some baseball gear :-) Enjoy!
You can check out Kim's business at www.kimyouraphotography.com

Love,
Steph, Rich, and Braden

Hi Braden, Steph and Rich,
You are so right in that we have so much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving, you wrote it so well.
We are praying extra hard for Braden this week and can honestly say we know what you are going through. We feel blessed to have met you all at CHW and to have this connection. Look forward to seeing you all soon and a happy and healthy Braden bouncing back yet again! He is a Superman like our Sam! Love, Erika, Kevin and Sam
