Surgery Now: July 20, 2012

July 20, 2012

They just wheeled Oliver in to the OR for his repair surgery! Pray as hard as you can for a smooth surgery for him & his surgeons and for an easy recovery. He had a good day yesterday, a smooth night and a good morning so Dr Mema and Dr Cox decided he’s ready. Dr Himidan came and got him and now we’re praying. He has to be on his right side for the surgery so they can access his defect & offending organs but he hates it so pray he tolerates that as well. All forms of good mojo are welcome!!! Thank you so much.

Also, here he is awake yesterday, i made a video:


His last photo without a scar (I’ll prefer the scar)

So he remembers he’s got something to fight for

Prepping him for surgery – on his right, ack!

Final preparations

Off he goes!

    What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson Oliver has so much more fight within him and so much to fight for.

    We are thinking of you (my sister in Montreal has been following your journey).
    Good Luck Oliver!

  19. All my prayers coming your way. He’ll do great. Good thoughts coming your way too. Sometimes I think they should sedate the parents too. It would be so much easier. ; ) I was always looking for my medications. Nobody ever offered.
