Lets try this again

Tomorrow we try Jax dental work again.
Once again he goes under anesthesia for a simple procedure. Tis the life of a medically fragile child. General anesthesia is not good for them, but its the only safe way to get things done sometimes.
The hospital staff never fails to remind me of how scary Jax is. It honestly surprises me that a childrens hospital acts so nervous with him. After all, its what they do. I always thought the trach was to make life easier for an anesthesiologist, but it doesn't seem to be the case with Jax. It got cancelled in July because the anesthesiologist went over his files with a fine tooth comb, looking, it seemed, for a reason not to have to do Jax. And he found one. So pray tomorrow it gets done, and no more excuses are found to not have to work on my warrior boy!

In a life so full of pain, he always comes out smiling. So many pokes, so many uncomfortable things, and yet he still loves his caretakers.
This boy is so strong, and tomorrow will be no different!

Maybe he should be General Maximus for Halloween this year? What a fighter! :)
