We appreciate the support, prayers, cards, phone calls, and other expressions of support that we have received during the last few months. We have been asked by a few people regarding visiting us or Whitney in the hospital. Visiting Whitney is a bit tricky: The NICU rules require a parent to be present with any visitors at all times and prevent any children other than Fiona from visiting Whitney. Because Whitney is going into surgery soon and will need some time to recover, we have decided to limit visitors to Whitney to family and ministers for the time being.

Susan is recovering well, but needs to rest and recuperate from the C-Section. We ask that only family, our ministers, and our district elder visit at this time. We welcome visitors to Susan after Whitney's surgery on Wednesday afternoon.

We thank you all for your interest, prayers, and love through this time!
