    I am gonna start with the good news first... Ayden surgery is dec 27th to try to remove his trach... trying to keep him well. His mommy went back to work as a medical assistant and grandma spends 50 hours a week with my baby boy... : )


    Bad news: My sister that was in the car wreck after Ayden was born has to have major surgery on her leg to try to save it. the rod bent in the femur and the bone is not healing. she is gonna loose an inch off of that leg and is having a bone graph and they have to pull out the rod and replace it. she may also have a hip replacement. they will be doing this first.

    also she found out yesterday her 18 year old son has testicular cancer and is having surgery monday. we will know more on how bad after his surgery. they thought he had a hernia. good news is that the catscan didnt show tumors anywhere else. Please keep them in your prayer... thank you in advance

    sorry it took so long gtting back....


    My nephew surgery went good. the doctors beleive its gonna respond well to treat ment. he is still in alot of pain. He goes to the doctor tuesday to discuss further treatment options

    My sister had a really tough time in her surgery. what was suposed to be 1 1/2 to 3 hour surgery ended up being over 8 hours. they had some issues getting to the hardware that was put in 2 years ago and she lost alot of blood which she tends to do in all the surgeries she has had since the accident. but the doctors are really pleased with the out come. they think she will have better range of motion in her leg. she lost an inch off of her leg that she wont get back. and her healing time is gonna be longer because they had to make bigger inscissions this time.

    ayden is sick with a cold. we are trying to get him over it . but right now looks like a good chance his surgery may be post poned...:( I will keep you posted

    my sister had to have another blood transfussion. they gave her two units of blood because her blood count was really low. she is now home from the hospital. My nephew got a call from the doctor saying they have alot to discuss and decisiions to make. He goes to the doctors tomorrow. praying its not as bad as we think it is.
