Surgery Thursday!

They just called me this morning and said they can fit him in Thursday. I'm so glad they moved him up but now the freaking out has begun again. I was thinking yesterday at the movie, am I going to be able to take him to movies with us now? What if he needs to be suctioned during the movie? Do I take him out or what?
I'm thinking we may be home in time for Halloween which is nice, the butterflies are just going crazy in my stomach now. Its only an hour long surgery, but its lifechanging. Yikes.

Oh, as scary as it seems, it will be nice to get on with it. Prayers.

Becky said...

YES! You'll still be able to take him places. Occasionally you'll have to leave for a moment to suction him, but it's not that big of a deal. Sometimes if there is a really loud part in the movie, I'll just suction Ben right in the theatre...nobody even notices. You'll find that you become a pro at becoming discreet. You can do it! I know you can!!! :)

Praying for you Lacey! I know Jax is going to great and you can take him to the movies! If he needs suctioned he needs it, no big twig!

Tausha said...

Yes, we waiting in line for about a 1/2 hour and then we decided to leave as we were way in the back. I was surprised that they only had one grill going. We ended up going to hires for lunch. :-) We did our own food and the 2 grills started up way before lunch and then we just kept them warm so we didn't have an issue. To bad as the food was free, I guess Red Robin just didn't play well.

It's blessing the surgery was moved up, less time to dwell on it. Will be praying for Jax and you and Ray.It will be OK Lacey,

Anderson Family said...

Oh boy that is soon! I'm glad they got him in - but you are right - I am sure you are all full of butterflies. Prayers will definitely be coming your way - this will be good for Jaxson. This is going to help - good vibes coming your way!! Please let me know if I can help you out with something!

Tiffany said...

That's pretty quick, but maybe that's a good thing so you won't have all this extra time to just think about it happening. I know the more time I have to think about things the more worried I become at times. I'll be praying for everything to go well and that even though this will be much different for you that God will help lead you through this change as well.

I am so glad he was bumped up... as scary as it will be. He's a fighter! We're praying for you all!

Stephanie said...

WOW! I am glad they bumped it up - FINALLY some relief for the little guy. However, I am going to be a nervous wreck on your behalf until you are all safe at home. ;) I know you can do it, and Jaxson will probably be a different little man when this is over.

Prayers and BIG HUGS coming your way!

Steph and Christopher

Denise said...

My first thought when I read your title was yay!! And then before I even read your next line, I thought "oh, no...she is going to be worrying about her decision now" I am sure it is the right decision. Anything to help the poor guy be able to breathe easier. We will be praying for Jax (as always).

Conrad, Megan and Our Precious Keaton said...

Always in my prayers and thoughts! Thinking of you all on Thursday, knowing God will be with you all! Please give Jax a HUGE hug from us all! From a very hot South Africa, Megan and Keaton

Sasha said...

Will be thinking and praying for you on Thursday. I am quite new to your blog but from what I can tell you and your family are soo loved and all of these great people are praying and rooting for you and Jaxson. I know you were nervous about waiting till the end of the month..so this is probably a good thing to have it earlier. Best of luck and wishes for Thursday.

You and Jaxson are always in my thoughts. I will keep you all in my thoughts nonstop!!!
